'A clean bill of health' - Pressley

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has revealed he has 'a clean bill of health' ahead of the trip to Brentford.

The City boss has a selection headache ahead of the game against the Bees as Andy Webster, Dan Seaborne, Jordan Willis and Jordan Clarke are all in contention for the centre-back spots.

Chuba Akpom has returned to the City squad after he played in the UEFA Youth League for Arsenal in a 4-2 defeat against Barcelona.

Mark Marshall could also be in contention to start for the Sky Blues at Griffin Park after his impressive substitute performance against Port Vale.

Pressley said: "We've got a clean bill of health which means that we have a lot of competition for places in the side.

"Mark Marshall has impressed when he has played. When he started for the side, his intensity for the first 60 minutes was great but fatigued slightly which means we had to take him off.

"He has seemed to do better for us when he has come from the bench. Carl Baker looked back to his best against Port Vale so that is something I have to consider as well.

"There are a lot of competition in the defence but I'm not going to reveal who is starting as I don't want to help Brentford out too much."
