PRESS WATCH: "The team is all that matters and if you're out of it, support it." - Coventry City's Tony Mowbray

24 February 2016

The City boss admitted to the Coventry Telegraph that he has a lot of players to chose from after a short break...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray knows the 'potential for discontent' has risen with players returning from injury.

The Sky Blues boss will have a fully refreshed squad heading into the weekend's game against Fleetwood Town after a weekend off.

After the 6-0 win over Bury, they'll be plenty of competition in the squad for the starting XI, despite midfielder Jim O'Brien moving to Scunthorpe United in search of more first-team football.

Aaron Martin and Martin Lorentzson could be close to a return to first-team action with impressive loan duo Jack Stephens and Baily Cargill providing more options in defence. 

Mowbray admitted to the Coventry Telegraph that he has plenty of options to choose from and says the squad has to support the team which are playing.

Mowbray said: “We’ve got Lameiras, Rose, Hunt, Fortune and Tudgay so let’s see. There are a few on the outskirts of it.

“Stephen can play left-back, left midfield, centre midfield – he’s a hugely different personality to Jim.

“He’s OK but I can only pick 18 so each week it will depend on the opposition and where we feel we can make changes to add size or energy to the team if things aren’t working.

“That’s the difficultly for me now because there will always be two or three who are disappointed at the end of the week and as players come back from injury and the numbers grow the potential for discontent is always there.

“But the team is all that matters and if you are out of it you should be supporting it.”
