Tomorrow night sees the 82nd game between Coventry City and Leeds United. City have won 17 of those matches and drawn 21 scoring 83 goals compared to Leeds' 133.
A goal from David Somna gave Leeds a 1-0 victory in the corresponding fixture last season.

City have only won twice at Elland Road, so pats on the back for those who have seen the City victories on Boxing Day 1996 (3-1) and a 2-1 win in February 1977.
One of the 81 games was played at Hillsborough and that was the 1987 FA Cup Semi-Final which saw a 3-2 victory for the Sky Blues in extra time.
