TEAM NEWS: Coventry City boss Tony Mowbray rues 'bad luck' with injuries as Jordan Willis' injury spell extended

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has revealed his frustration with the bad luck the club has suffered with injuries so far this season.

The Sky Blues have suffered a number of long-term absentees already this season, with James Maddison, Reda Johnson and Ivor Lawton all suffering long-term absences.

Jordan Willis, who was coming back from a separate injury, suffered another knee injury on his return to action last week and will now need an operation which will keep him out for an extended period of time.

All the injuries the club has suffered have been 'contact' injuries and this is where the City boss' frustration comes from.

The City boss said: "I think we've had some very bad fortune with our injuries this season as there have been none, if any, muscle injuries through overuse and fitness.

"They've all been contact injuries in tackles or collisions. We had Reda Johnson and James Maddison, and Jordan Willis compounded that this week as well.

"Thankfully, nothing major from the weekend. There are a few players who we carry during the week but we wrap them up and make sure they're good for the next game."
