Coventry City boss Chris Coleman wants his players to draw on the spirit they showed last season in their fixture this Saturday.

The Sky Blues were down to ten men midway through the first half when Stephen Wirght was given his marching orders, but Coventry rallied, and how.

Rangers displayed the profligacy that had dogged their season from start to finish, and couldn't find the breakthrough in W12 - not a problem it seemed for the visitors.

Dan Fox lashed home a free-kick in the second half to have Sky Blues fans dreaming of a smash and grab, only for Dexter Blackstock to steal in an secure a point for Rangers.

Coleman told ccfc.co.uk that the same battling spirit would be important as they head to Loftus Road this weekend.

'I thought the boys that played against QPR last season were outstanding, they worked so hard and we were really unlucky to win on the day,' he said.

Speaking in the build up to this weekend's clash in W12, Coleman's men find themselves on a poor run of form, searching for that elusive win.

The Sky Blues boss wants them to pick up all three points in the capital, in what he believes would be a 'scalp' for the club.

He continued: 'We know what a difficult side Queens Park Rangers are which is why you would consider them to be such a scalp if we did go on to get all the points because it would give the lads masses of confidence to beat a team that's up there in the league.

'QPR have been on a good run of late but I know and my players know that winning a game of football is the best feeling in the workd and we will be chasing that at the weekend.

'We've had a few bad results in the past few weeks but the lads have been buoyant in the wake of the draw with Palace so we will look to take that into Saturday.'


Coventry have a good recent record at Loftus Road, with no defeat in their last four games.

Their thorn in the side in recent years has been the form of Michael Mifsud, who seemed to relish the prospect of playing in West London. Thankfully he is no longer a feature in the Sky Blues squad.
