CONNECTIONS: Former Coventry City skipper Carl Baker is one of a number of players to have played for City and the MK Dons…

28 February 2015

Baker could play tomorrow and is one of three players we profile that have played for the Sky Blues and the Dons…

Coventry City take on MK Dons tomorrow at the Ricoh Arena in a SkyBet League One clash and it is a big game with a lot at stake for both teams.

Although the Buckinghamshire side have only been formed for 11 years there have been a number of players that have featured for both sides.

Here are three players that have worn both shirts, starting with a man that could make his first appearance against City since joining the Dons in the summer…

Carl Baker

The former City skipper finds himself at MK Dons after spending four years at the Sky Blues between 2010 and 2014. He featured 160 times, scoring 21 goals.



He originally began his career at Southport, before moving to Morecambe and then Stockport, where he caught the eye with a number of stellar performance. He scored 12 goals in 40 games for the Lancashire club.

Baker has hit the ground running at MK, being named player of the month in November. With six goals in 25 games, Baker will be at the heart of the engine room in midfield for the Dons.

Clinton Morrison

Now 35, the powerhouse centre-forward played for City between 2008 and 2010 after signing from Crystal Palace. He played 91 times, scoring 21 goals.



He had a loan spell at the Dons in 2011, scoring three goals in six games as he looked to improve his form after being loaned out by parent club Sheffield Wednesday.

Morrison is now at Exeter, making 12 appearances for the Grecians to date.

Clive Platt

The Wolverhampton-born striker was at the Sky Blues for two years between 2010 and 2012, scoring seven times in 67 games after his move from League One side Colchester United.



Platt made the Sky Blues his seventh club after moving to City in the same way as Morrison, from Colchester United.

Following the relegation to League One Platt departed to Northampton and now finds himself at Bury, scoring twice since joining in January 2014.
