INJURY NEWS: “Jordan Willis has trained over the last three or four days, so he’ll be in contention.” - Coventry City's Russell Slade

13 January 2017

The City boss confirms that Jordan Willis will be a part of the matchday squad, following a short spell on the sidelines...

Russell Slade has suggested that the City captain is set to return, while Chris Stokes suffered a slight setback midweek.

Stokes was substituted at halftime on Tuesday evening, and will continue to work on his fitness after an eight month injury lay-off. 

Slade said: “When players get the opportunity you want them to perform and pose a problem to selection, it is healthy competition. 

“Chris Stokes is a bit tight in the groin area, nothing major. He has had a difficult time, and he’s getting back to fitness. 

“The rigours of training and playing games can have an affect, it is a fatigue injury more than anything. 

“Jordan Willis has trained over the last three or four days, so he’ll be in contention.”
