Swindon Town Head Coach Luke Williams reckons his side will be in for a tough afternoon against Coventry City, despite their recent troubles. 

The Sky Blues have really struggled for form since early December and now sit just outside the play-off places following a dire run of four wins from their last sixteen games.

Coventry now face a real fight to make the play-offs, despite leading the way in League One for much of the first-half of this season.

Town, on the other hand, are unbeaten in six and have won four out of their last five outings heading into today’s crunch clash at the Ricoh Arena (3pm Kick-Off).

The Robins are currently nine points adrift of the play-offs but are able to boast a game in-hand on the top six, while they could move to within just three points of Coventry with a victory later.

And, despite the stark contrast in form between the two sides, Williams believes his troops will have their work cut out this afternoon in order to return to Wiltshire with what would be a crucial three points.

“We were in a similar situation last season where, all of a sudden, the season starts to draw towards its end and you start to see the opportunity and you are staring it in the face,” he told BBC Wiltshire.

“It can become very daunting and it can become scary at that moment.

“You start to suffer and you can’t quite put your finger on why performances are suffering.

“But there is a very, very good side there (at Coventry) and they are not going to be feeling sorry for themselves and they are not going to be starting the game expecting to lose.

“They are going to be expecting to win.

“We will of course try to force them to feel negative and force them to feel down about it by our performance.”
