The City manager has backed the City midfielder to come back stronger as he continues his injury rehab...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has revealed James Maddison is progressing well with his ankle injury, speaking to the Coventry Telegraph.

The 18-year old was forced off during the early stages of the 2-1 defeat at Walsall in August.

Maddison has since seen an ankle specialist and has been undergoing injury rehabilitation with the club's physiotherapy staff.

Mowbray confirmed that Maddison is progressing well with the injury but expressed caution that he'll be ready 'when he's ready'.

The City boss said: “It’s good news. He’s a young guy who, without getting over confident, is healing well. 

"He’s not a 30-odd year old who has had lots of knocks and it’s going to take a while; he’s a young guy whose knitting together very quickly.

“I asked the same question of the physio as to whether we should be knocking off a month or two from that initial timescale.

“I think they tend to err on the side of caution and, basically, they’ve said he’ll be ready when he’s ready."
