Cov go into the match with a slender one point
lead from the first leg of the Cheltenham & Gloucester Cup on their own ground last
weekend. There are many who believe the lead is not enough for the Second Division side to
go into the draw for the next round.
But at least they have skipper Julian Horrobin back in the side after his neck injury,
although centre Mick Curtis and flanker Lee Crofts are missing with knocks picked up in
the first leg.
The last time Coventry played at Bedford they lost by a mammoth 77-3 scoreline.
Team: Kilford; McAdam, Robinson , Minshull, Smallwood; Criscuolo, Dawson; Morgan,
Addleton, Kerr, Fountaine, Whitley, Salisbury, Horrobin, Eves. Replacements: Gallagher,
Mafi, Hewlett, Crofts, Sharp, Soden, Crane.
