TEAM NEWS: Walsall v Coventry City - Andy Rose makes his full return to the Sky Blues XI

29 October 2016

Midfielder Andy Rose makes his first start since suffering a knee injury against Bury in August...

Mark Venus makes one change to the side that defeated Rochdale last weekend, with Andy Rose replacing the injured Chris McCann.

Lee Burge retains his place in goal, with an unchanged defensive four. Rose will slot in alongside Gael Bigirimana and Ben Stevenson in a midfield three, while Venus opts for the same attacking setup that started in the Sky Blues' back-to-back wins against Oxford and Rochdale. 

Kyel Reid and Jodi Jones are available from the bench, while 18-year old Callum Maycock has also earned himself a seat in the dugout. 


Coventry City: Burge (GK), Sterry, Willis (C), Turnbull, Page, Rose, Stevenson, Bigirimana, Lameiras, Sordell, Agyei.

Subs: Charles-Cook (GK), Ricketts, Maycock, Reid, Jones, Wright, Tudgay.

Walsall: Etheridge (GK), Edwards, Laird, O'Connor, McCarthy, Chambers (C), Oztumer, Morris, Toner, Makris, Moussa. 

Subs: Macgillivray (GK), Dobson, Jackson, Osbourne, Kinsella, Preston, Ginnelly.
