Sky Blues boss Mark Robins has made ten changes from the team that won against Charlton at the weekend for tonight’s game against Forest Green.

In goal, Liam O’Brien replaces Lee Burge, as he continues his run of games in cup competitions.

Defender Morgan Williams makes his first start since his summer move from Mickelover Sport, while Brandon Mason and Dominic Hyam return from injury. Jordon Thompson competes City’s backline.

Liam Kelly is the only player from Saturday’s late victory at The Valley to retain his place and is joined by Abu Ogogo and Tony Andreu in midfield.

Jak Hickman also makes his first start for the club and is accompanied by Jordy Hiwula, who returns to the Sky Blues starting XI.
