PREVIEW: Morecambe v Coventry City - The Sky Blues head to the Globe Arena in SkyBet League Two

City face the Shrimps...

8 December 2017

The Sky Blues will be looking to put pressure on the top three tomorrow as they head to the Globe Arena to face Morecambe.

Mark Robins' side will have Rod McDonald back to face the Shrimps after the defender missed out last time out with concussion.

Coventry will still be without Liam Kelly (Heel) along with Tony Andreu (ACL) and Jodi Jones (ACL) who will have an opertaion on his knee today.

Dean Winnard (Achillies) and Reece Deakin (Broken Leg) are both unavailible for Morecambe who sit 21st in League Two, two points above the drop zone.

The Opponents

Aaron Wildig could be one to keep an eye out for at the Globe Arena. The former Cardiff City midfielder has been a Morecambe regular for the last two seasons after joining from Shrewsbury

Ahead of him, 38-year-old Kevin Ellison is likely to feature. The former Leciester man has scored 68 goals for Morecambe since joining in 2011.

Garry Thompson is currently in his second spell at Morecambe. The winger made 325 appearance during his first spell, helping the Shrimps earn promotion to the Football League in 2007.

The now 37-year-old then enjoyed spells at Scunthorpe, Notts County, Wycombe and Bradford where reached the League Cup Final in spectacular fashion in 2012, scoring against Arsenal in quarter-finals.
