Coventry City full-back Chris Stokes has described Notts County as "basically" a "long ball" team and is hoping to see his side put another three goals past them.
The two sides will lock horns for the first leg of their League Two playoff semi-final at the Ricoh Arena this Saturday before the return leg takes place at Meadow Lane six days later.
Notts fell to a 3-0 defeat in the opening game of the season but won 2-1 when the Sky Blues came to Nottingham.
“When they came here last time we put three past them so we will be looking to do that again,” Stokes told the Coventry Telegraph.
“We have been studying them this week. We played them recently so we know what they are like and what we have to go up against. We’ll follow the game plan and make sure we get a result.
“We have (struggled against more direct and physical sides) but we know where we need to improve.
“They are a physical and direct side but we’ll study them and know where their threats are because it’s not long since we last played each other, so if we get done the same way again then it’s only our fault.
“I don’t know what their game plan will be but basically they play long ball.
“If we go into it with a good result from the first leg then they’re going to have to come at us and we know we’re good on the counter attack.
“So hopefully we can get a good result on Saturday and go there with a couple of goals up.”
