Stevenage boss Graham Westley hopes to delay Coventry's climb out of the bottom four when they travel to Broadhall Way on Saturday.
The Sky Blues are only a point behind 20th-placed Boro despite starting the season with a 10-point deduction.
"It's going to be a big test but our place has always been difficult to come to," said Westley.
"We know how to play on our patch and it's up to us to make it difficult for everyone who comes.
"We need to post some points, there's no point hiding from that, we don't want to be down the bottom, we want to be progressing as a football club."
