Coventry vs Southampton

Saints travel to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday to try and extend their lead at the top before the international break.

Nigel Adkins' men have avoided defeat in nine of the last 10 league games and sit five points clear in first place.

Coventry have made a dreadful start to the season - having only won twice in 15 league games.

He told the official website: 'If we get three points then we'll go into the mini break top of the league with three wins on the spin and that would be great.'
