What have the managers said?
Steve Cooper: “Coventry had a really good result on the weekend against Brentford. They’re a team that’s stuck to the way they got promoted with last year from League One. I always have respect for that.
“It’s a game we’ve absolutely got to be ready for, but we will be.
“We’re at home, we’re starting this spell of playing every three or four days and it’s about survival of the fittest and the toughest as well, both physically and mentally.”
Mark Robins: “It [Brentford win] was a really good performance, it gives us a platform now to kick on which isn’t easy because we’ve got an away game at Swansea on Wednesday and away at Blackburn Rovers next week, we’re under no illusions, but for this game it was a really good performance against a top team.
“We’ve got players coming back now and this performance gives everybody a much-needed boost, it’s been a real big effort this week from everybody to try and give us that lift, psychologically, to go into this game with as much confidence as we possibly could do, they’ve done fantastically well and deserve all the plaudits they get for today.”

Who is the referee?
Andy Woolmer will take charge of proceedings in Swansea.

Woolmer will be assisted by Lee Venamore and Nick Greenhalgh, while John Busby is the fourth official.
