TEAM NEWS: Coventry City v Bury - Ruben Lameiras starts as part of a front three for the Sky Blues

16 August 2016

Summer signing Chris McCann is set to make his Sky Blues debut in tonight's Bury clash...

Coventry City Manager Tony Mowbray makes four changes to the side that drew with Shrewsbury at the weekend.

Chris McCann comes in to midfield in place of Ben Stevenson, who drops down to the bench. Marcus Tudgay and George Thomas regain their starting berth up top, while Ryan Haynes is restored to the wing-back position ahead of Lewis Page.

The defensive line remains unchanged, as Reice Charles-Cook continues in goal. Ruben Lameiras will complete the Sky Blues attacking line-up.

Sam Ricketts will once again captain the side as City go in search of their first three points of the new League One campaign.
