PRESS WATCH: "It’s a crucial game because they’re right down there with us – there’s no point trying to hide that." - City’s Russell Slade

24 February 2017

Russell Slade welcomes back key members of his first-team squad as the Sky Blues face Swindon Town...

The Sky Blues boss contends with a welcome selection headache ahead of Saturday's League One tie, with Stuart Beavon and Charles Vernam in contention after a spell on the sidelines.

After goals in recent weeks for George Thomas, Kwame Thomas and Marcus Tudgay, Slade now has further options in the attacking third. 

Speaking to the Coventry Observer, Slade said: “The good thing is it creates competition for places.

“That means sometimes players will up their game and I think now, more than ever, to have your forwards back is crucial and that competition for places now, is as good or is becoming as strong as it’s been since I’ve been here."
