Coventry City loanee Sam McCallum has said that the game against Reading is the chance to show the rest of the league what they can do.
The Sky Blues have hit a poor run of form after a solid start to life back in the Championship. Having failed to win in any of their last six games.
Two late goals saw them come from the Riverside with nothing in the midweek game.
And things don’t get easier for Coventry, with them facing early league leaders Reading in their next outing.
The Royals have dropped just two points in their opening eight matches of the season, giving them a six-point lead over second-placed Bournemouth.
However, McCallum has said that there is no better opportunity for Coventry to make their mark on the Championship season and turn around their recent form.
“This is the game to do it if we’re going to do it,” he said ahead of the match.
“Last season we were playing amazing against the good teams and this is really our chance to put a marker on this league and show the other teams in the Championship what we can do.”
The midweek results mean that Coventry go into the game in the third relegation place in the league, but three points are likely to fire them up the table should they get them this weekend.

“If there’s any game we’re going to do something about putting the points on the board, I think it would be this game, I think we’ll give them a good running,” McCallum added.
“They’re top of the league, but we’re not too worried about that because it’s early days, we know how much can change in such a short time period.
“Teams change form they’ll be in and out of form and I think that applies to us as well, but we feel like once we work this league out, we’ll be able to kick on and start pushing and climbing the league.”
