Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray  revealed there are no new injury concerns and has full capacity of players to choose from including new signings Andy Rose and Stephen Hunt.


The City boss remarked the two new signings Andy Rose and Stephen Hunt could feature against the Shrimpers at the weekend.


Mowbray also added that Gael Bigirimana is the most likely replacement for John Fleck, as the midfielder is to miss the Southend game due to suspension.


He said: “I am not anticipating any major absentees, there is just a few who are feeling a bit delicate at the moment, but we have two days to train and pick a team to go to Southend, and try and get a positive result.


 "A few have not trained this week, but over the next couple of days we will train and see who we are going to take to Southend.”


Mowbray also commented that there could be possible changes to the side, with the new signings in contention and John Fleck being suspended.


He added: “They will be coming with the team as long as they come through training, but whether they get on the pitch, whether they start the game, whether they are suited to us we’ll have to wait and see.” 


“I think Gael is the obvious replacement for John Fleck, as long as he comes through training over the next few days. He did a good job away to Bradford very efficiently and very effectively, so I have no fears if Gael starts the game.


“He is a similar type of player to John Fleck, he likes to keep the ball moving and keep playing forward, and hopefully find our front four with his passing.”
