Tottenham return to White Hart Lane on Saturday, just six days after their glorious FA Cup quarter-final win at Upton Park. And even their notoriously fickle fans should give the team a rousing reception as they look forward to a forthcoming FA Cup semi-final with near neighbours Arsenal next month.
Meanwhile for Coventry, Saturday's game is vital if they are to stave off the threat of relegation from the top flight for the first time in their history. The Sky Blues are four points from safety and with just 10 games remaining, now is the time for Gordon Strachan's team to stand up and be counted.
Coventry will be boosted by their 2-1 win over Spurs back in October and online betting group www.SpursBet.co.uk offer 4/1 on the Sky Blues securing their first league double of the season with a win in north London.
One man hoping to claim his first win since his arrival at Highfield Road is striker John Hartson. The powerful Welsh international will be eager to impress after a £5 million switch to Spurs fell through last season when he failed a stringent White Hart Lane medical.
George Graham, who made Hartson the country's most expensive teenager when he signed him for Arsenal for a fee of £2.5 million in January 1995, is fully aware of Hartson's strengths and weaknesses and will instruct his defence accordingly.
Hartson is certainly capable of boosting Coventry's poor shooting accuracy of 38% which is the second lowest tallies in the Premiership and www.SpursBet.co.uk offer 15/2 on the former Wimbledon man grabbing the game's first goal.
Tottenham's shooting accuracy of 41% is only marginally better than Coventry's, but in striker Sergei Rebrov they possess a striker who is growing in confidence after a shaky start to his Spurs career.
The pocket dynamo may have a disappointing goals to shots ratio of 17% this season, but in addition to his two goals at an over-cast Upton Park last weekend, Rebrov was also on-target in the match between the two teams at Highfield Road back in October. And his sharpness in front of goal may well continue into this Saturday' s game.
Nevertheless the Ukrainian will not find it easy, as he will be up against a team who can boast the best tackle success rate in the Premiership. Coventry's ratio of success rate of 78% is seven percentage points greater than Spurs and it could prove to be a telling factor in Saturday's outcome.
