Micky Adams was already aware that the scramble to avoid relegation at the bottom of the Championshipreads like a 'Who's Who' of his old clubs.
Leicester City, Brighton and Nottingham Forest, all of whom he has managed, are all there in the thick of it with the Sky Blues, as are Gillingham, the club with whom he started his career as a player.
But, despite slipping into the bottom three for the first time following Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Sunderland, Adams is still encouraged by his team's form over the past seven games.
And, with Brighton and Forest due to be Coventry's next two opponents, Adams acknowledges that Coventry's season could hinge on those two matches at Highfield Road early next month.
"I don't think our season will come down to Sunderland away," said Adams. "It will come down to Brighton and Nottingham Forest at home.
"I thought we were terrific at Sunderland. We more than matched them for long periods and we were positive."
Adams' main aim this week is to call in another favour from his old Gillingham teammate Steve Bruce and tie up the extended loan of Birmingham City keeper Ian Bennett.
Adams will also be hoping to have Stephen Hughes back in action for the visit of Brighton on April 2 after an outbreak of flu.
