Boothroyd's advice for M69 derby Coventry City manager Aidy Boothroyd has urged his players to keep cool ahead of the M69 derby with Leicester City this lunch-time at the Ricoh Arena.Speaking to the CT, Boothroyd said:"It is my first Coventry derby and the bigger the crowd the more volatile the atmosphere and I like all that."You have to make sure you rise to the occasion and keep cool and do what needs to be required. It will be down to who can make the right tactical decisions and then it is down to the players to make the key blocks and key touches that score goals."We have got to remain clam under pressure and make good decisions and we have to score more than they do."What is important is that we impose ourselves. They are a bit like us in many ways in that they as in transition with a new manager who wants to impose his own style and way of doing things and I think the results they have had probably don't reflect the games. But I think they have got a very good squad from last year and Paulo has added to it and it will be a very tough game."It has the added spice of being a derby but I think Leicester are a different team to what they were last year and I think we're a different team to what we were last year, so it will be a gauge for how far Paulo has come in his time there and how far I feel we have come."
