INJURY NEWS: "We'll wait and see how Lee is, but Reice Charles-Cook is a keeper we like and has started the season well." Tony Mowbray

2 October 2015

The Sky Blues boss has confidence in Charles-Cook should Burge not make it and also talked about Jordan Willis and James Maddison's injuries...

Coventry City boss Tony Mowbray admitted it will be a last minute call as to whether Lee Burge will start in goal against Shrewsbury.

The 22-year old hasn’t missed a league game yet but is struggling with a sickness bug ahead of this weekend’s fixture. 

Mowbray doesn’t know whether the stopper will make it for the game but isn’t remotely worried about giving Reice Charles-Cook his senior league debut if Burge isn’t able to play.

"Lee’s been ill and we’ll have to wait to see if he’ll make it," Mowbray explained.

"But it isn’t a problem for me because in Reice Charles-Cook we have a keeper who has started the season really well and is confident. He’s a keeper we like and he’s done well."

Mowbray added on James Maddison and Jordan Willis’ injuries: "Jordan and James are progressing OK.

"There’s no rush for them, we’ve said that from day one. Maddison has been a miss in terms of the way he started the season with some top performances and Jordan has been a miss with his pace and power at full-back.

"But both are progressing nicely, there’s no rush, when they’re ready they’re ready."
