Steve Davis: Wary of Coventry threat

Alex head into Wednesday night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern Area Final second leg against Coventry with a 3-0 lead but Davis believes the fact the managerless Sky Blues have nothing to lose makes them a dangerous proposition.

"Coventry will come here and try and make things happen," he told the Railwaymen's official website. "They have to and they scored a very early goal at Bury on Saturday. They started well and we have to be ready for that.

"We have to get that balance right, when we don't over commit in numbers but can push on and attack when we need to.

"We will treat the game as normally as possible. It is important that we remain solid and keep our discipline on the pitch.

"If you keep 11 players on the pitch then you have a better chance of winning the game. We know anything can happen, they could score an early goal, so we have to prepare for every eventuality and we have."
