Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has issued a challenge to striker Shaun Miller to impress him and break into the side.
Speaking to the Coventry Telegraph, the City boss was impressed with what he saw during the 2-1 defeat against Millwall Under-21s on Monday, Miller scoring City's only goal.
Miller has suffered with injury since the 4-2 defeat at Cardiff City earlier in the month so it was the first chance for Mowbray to see him play.
Mowbray said: “Shaun’s been in to see me. He was signed by Sheffield United for a few quid and watching him on Monday I can see his movement is quite good.
“The bottom line is he needs to train and show me on the training pitch, catch my eye and score some goals, make some good movement and get hold of the ball so I come in and think that Miller deserves to get on the bench.
“I can’t do that just because he’s fit, he has to show me. I told him it’s no good telling me, he has to show me what he can do and I thought the first signs were good because he had some nice touches.
“So let’s wait and see how he does. But time is running out. We’re, what, five weeks away but he’s another potential option for us.”
