The City boss has revealed Lee Burge is set to start for the Sky Blues against the League Two side in the JPT...

Coventry City goalkeeper Lee Burge is set to get another first-team chance in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy against Exeter City tomorrow.

The City Academy graduate has already made two appearances for the Sky Blues this season and he kept a clean sheet against Wycombe Wanderers in the first-round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy as City clinched a 1-0 win.

Burge has also had a number of impressive performances for the Under-21s and the City boss says it is another chance for him to impress.

Pressley said: "The cup competitions give me a great chance to start Lee Burge and give him some valuable first-team experience. 

"We're seeing him progress all the time and he did well in the previous round against Wycombe Wanderers.

"He has been playing for the Under-21s as well but first-team experience is vital. It represents another chance for him to come into the side and impress."
