Aidy Boothroyd has warned Coventry not to underestimate a Burnley side who come to the Ricoh Arena as the only team in the Championship yet to win away from home this season.
Coventry, who will be looking to arrest a three-match losing streak on Saturday, entertain the Clarets who have drawn six and lost two of their eight away days so far this term.
"They`re a hard side to beat, they`ve got Premier League experience and they`re one of the favourites to go back up," said Boothroyd.
"There`s always a hangover with Premier League teams. I`ve been there myself and at some point or other they`ll go through a bad spell and have to come out of it.
"We`ve just got to make sure we prepare ourselves right because we know we`re in for a tough game. The fact they`ve not won away from home also makes it one of those games where you`ve got to be extra careful."
He added: "I think they`ve got a good, strong squad, they`re a Premier League team who have kept their manager which is unusual. Brian (Laws) has been around a bit, he`s a very experienced manager who I`ve got a lot of time for. I think if you underestimate them then you do so at your peril."
