"Madine and Martin are doubts for the game and that's a blow, but it gives others a chance." Coventry City's Steven Pressley

The Sky Blues manager also doesn't want to make major alterations to the system which has seen City keep two clean sheets in the last four games...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has revealed that both Gary Madine and Aaron Martin are doubts for Saturday's derby against Walsall at the Banks's Stadium.

The Sky Blues boss also welcomes James Maddison and Adam Barton back from suspension but admits he wants to try to avoid "drastic changes" to the system which has seen City keep two clean sheets in the last four matches. 

"Obviously we like continuity, but we'll have to decide on the personnel," Pressley said.

"Madine has a slight tweak of his knee and Martin has been suffering from sickness.

"Those two players have been performing exceptionally well over the past few months so it's a blow, but it gives other people an opportunity to impress should they not make it. 

"James and Adam both come back into contention too. I don't want to upset too many things and make drastic changes but we've got some decisions to make."
