Ahead of the weekend’s trip to Whaddon Road, Sky Blues boss Mark Robins gave an injury update on his side.

On-loan midfielder Jordan Maguire-Drew made his return from injury in the Under 23s game at the Ricoh Arena yesterday afternoon.

Jordan suffered a damage stomach muscle after an operation to have his appendix removed, but now he is back training at Ryton.

He said: “Jordan is getting himself back he had a bad operation and it can be a tough one to get over.

“He is moving ok and fitness wise he still isn’t quite right, but he’s back in training and he played half a game yesterday.”

The Sky Blues duo of Tony Andreu and Jodi Jones suffered Cruciate Ligament injuries earlier in the season and are on the road to recovery.

Andreu who suffered his injury back in September is ‘chomping at the bit’ says Robins and Jones who was ruled out in November is doing well.

“Tony Andreu is flying in training and he’s chomping at the bit to get started but he’s still a little way from joining in and he will be back in pre-season.

“Jodi Jones has been on the Alter G machine so he is up to 70% of his body weight which is fantastic, great news and the swelling has all gone from his knee and he’s moving pretty well.

“He’s moving in the right direction which is fantastic and hoping he will have a trouble free rehabilitation process and will be back as soon as they possibly can.”

Elsewhere, there was an update on midfielders Peter Vincenti and Carl Baker.

“Peter Vincenti is back on the grass and running again and Carl Baker still has his calf problem, which is as good as it has been, but he still isn’t able to join in with training.”
