Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray revealed that midfielder John Fleck and defender Reda Johnson came through their return from injury with 'flying colours'.

The pair both completed 90 minutes, Johnson's first for three months, as the Sky Blues beat Colchester United 1-0 on Saturday.

The City boss also confirmed that James Maddison has come into his plans, after impressing after coming on as a substitute, including striking the bar late on.

"John Fleck came through with no problems," he said. "It was a risk to start him but he played the full 90 with no problems.

"Reda also came through his return with flying colours. We have no other problems so we are hopeful of getting a result against Oldham tomorrow.

"James Maddison did well when he came on. He is going to have a long career ahead of him so we need to manage him carefully.

"He has been out for a while, but there is no doubt he impressed in his cameo. We'll wait and see about starting him in the near future."
