Coventry will be hopeful of boosting their survival hopes when they travel to doomed Colchester on Saturday.
Although the U's have already been relegated, Coventry are still fighting for their Championship lives and head into Saturday's game just one point above third-bottom Leicester.
The Sky Blues have won just one of their last seven games but know that victory at Layer Road could take them up to 16th place with two games remaining.
And three points are crucial for Chris Coleman's men as they face play-off hopefuls Wolves and Charlton in their last two games.
Colchester seem to be going down with a fight, though, with manager Geraint Williams having told his players they are playing for their future.
The U's beat seventh-placed Ipswich in their last home game before being denied a second straight win by a late Leicester equaliser last week.
Williams has injury concerns over on-loan defender Matt Heath and Danny Granville, while Teddy Sheringham is back in full training after a lengthy injury absence and hoping to make another appearance before the end of his 25th and final season.
Coventry striker Michael Mifsud missed training in the week due to illness but will be available for the Sky Blues, so Coleman could name an unchanged line-up.
