Wood returns to first team training

21 March 2013

Steven Pressley gives a full injury update ahead of the weekend trip to Pompey...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley confirmed centre-back Richard Wood has returned to training following a groin injury.

The 30-year old pulled his groin in the second leg of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy against Crewe Alexandra and has spent the last six games on the sidelines.

City boss Steven Pressley said: "We have got a few injuries in the squad and to a few key players as well.

"Leon (Clarke) is out until the end of the season and now we have got Carl (Baker) who will miss out the weekend's game, and we will assess it after that.

"Richard Wood is still out but he has returned to training today and joined in so that was positive to see.

"Hopefully, he will back up to full fitness in 7-10 days."

Stephen Elliott and Blair Adams are also out injured but Pressley holds hope that both could still have a part to play this season. 

He added: "Stephen (Elliott) and Blair (Adams) are another two who we can't call upon at the moment but they are both making really good progress.

"So, with them two, there might be a chance we will see them back in before the end of the season. At this moment in time, it is still doubtful but if they continue to make good progress, then we will look at it again in the future."
