Blues Without Chambers Against Coventry
Saturday, 7th Dec 2019 14:47
Town are without skipper Luke Chambers for this afternoon’s League One game against Coventry at St Andrew’s, but manager Paul Lambert makes only one change from the team which drew 1-1 with the Sky Blues in the FA Cup last Sunday, although six from the last league outing, the 0-0 draw with Wycombe.
Chambers has a neck problem, which is only expected to sideline him for a few days, while Cole Skuse, who suffered a hip problem at Peterborough on Wednesday, is on the bench.
Gwion Edwards comes in for Danny Rowe on the left of the front three with the former Macclesfield man out with a knee injury, also not believed to be serious. Alan Judge is on the right with Will Keane the lone central striker with James Norwood suspended.
Flynn Downes again skippers from central midfield alongside Jon Nolan and Andre Dozzell, while Janoi Donacien and Luke Garbutt are the full-backs and James Wilson and Luke Woolfenden the centre-halves.
Forward Callum O’Hare, who scored Coventry’s equaliser last week, and striker Amadou Bakayoko start for the home side, while striker Matty Godden is on the bench after injury.
Coventry: Marosi, Dabo, McCallum, Hyam, McFadzean, Rose, Kelly, Westbrooke, O’Hare, Bakayoko, Biamou. Subs: Wilson, Allen, Hiwula, Godden, Shipley, Kasteneer, Drysdale.
Town: Norris, Donacien, Woolfenden, Wilson, Garbutt, Dozzell, Downes, Nolan, Edwards, Judge, Keane. Subs: Holy, Skuse, Jackson, El Mizouni, Kenlock, Dobra, Georgiou. Referee: Darren Drysdale (Lincolnshire).
