Portsmouth Will Be Tough - Thorn

City caretaker on trip to Pompey Coventry City caretaker manager Andy Thorn thinks that his Sky Blues team will be in for another tough match when they travel to Fratton Park to take on Portsmouth tomorrow night. "Portsmouth will be tough, they're a good side, we played them first game of the season," said Thorn to the Press Association. "Steve Cotterill was at Wimbledon when I was about, he'll have them going, every game is a tough game." On whether City had a chance against a team with the third best home record over the last six matches in the division, Thorn said: "I think that's the case in every game you go to play in the Championship. "We've tried to be bold and we've tried to be brave. My philosophy on that is we may as well have a go and see how we go, rather than sit back and try and nick a point here and nick a point there. I'd sooner have a go for it." Coventry City supporters will not be able to pay on the day for this game and will need to get a ticket today from City's ticket office at the Ricoh Arena.
