INJURY NEWS: Update On Squad Ahead Of Grimsby Clash

The Gaffer gives an update on Tom Davies and Carl Baker...

23 March 2018

Sky Blues defender Tom Davies has been back in training at Ryton this week, as he continues his recovery from the injury he picked up back in January.

Davies has been out with a broken collarbone since the trip to Forest Green Rovers but the Coventry boss, Mark Robins admitted he isn’t to far away from returning to action.

He said: “Tom Davies is training again and he’s joined in this week and he’s been part of training sessions that we’ve done.

“It’s probably a little bit earlier than we thought, but he’s feeling good about it so we will look at him for next week and there’s talk of him playing part of the under 23s game on Monday.

“However, that might probably be too early for the physios as they want him absolutely 100%, but he’s pushing and I’m happy for him to do that as long he’s alright.

“He knows his body, as long as we’re not doing anything stupid we will try to get him back as quickly as we can.”

The Manager also gave an update on the fitness of Carl Baker, who is now available for selection following his international clearance which came through last week.

However, Baker has been suffering with a calf problem this week, but he could be back training as early as next week with the Sky Blues.

Robins said: “He’s had a problem with his calf and I imagine the increase load has had an effect with giving him that issue so maybe he’s four or five days away and may even start training on Monday.

“When you up the increase load on your body and it’s the opposite leg to the one he’s had trouble with and there’s clearly an issue there for Carl and the balance needs to be solved and sorted out for him for him to continue training and to get him close to the first team.

“What he does is he tries to push himself and there is a possibility that he’s trying to much too soon before his body is ready to cope with it.”
