INJURY NEWS: Russell Slade gives an update on the fitness of his squad ahead of tomorrow's trip to Wales

23 January 2017

City striker Stuart Beavon will likely miss out having been forced off with injury at the weekend...

The Sky Blues will be without Beavon tomorrow as he recovers from a hamstring scare, while the City boss will also have to ensure his starting XI complies with the competition's 'full strength' criteria.

New signing Farrend Rawson is cup-tied, having already represented Derby County in the Trophy, but Jordan Turnbull is eligible to return after serving his one-match suspension. 

Russell Slade said: “Rules and regulations and one or two injury problems. We have cup-tied players, which makes it a bit limiting.

“It gives one or two others another opportunity. Stuart Beavon has a tight hamstring, rather than a strain. We’re hoping he’ll be fit for Saturday.”
