Sky Blues duo, Declan Drysdale and Josh Eccles make their first Football League starts this afternoon as  City come up against Rochdale.

Drysdale made his first start for the club in the last outing at St Andrew's when he played 90 minutes against Southampton Under-21s in the Trophy and Eccles has featured on several occasion in various competitions.

Elsewhere, the duo are two of four changes from the side that beat Colchester United, with Marko Marosi and Brandon Mason returning, as Sam McCallum misses out through injury and Liam Kelly with illness.

In midfield, Jordan Shipley captains the side and he is joined in midfield alongside Liam Walsh, Josh Eccles and Zain Westbrooke.

Finally, striker Amadou Bakayoko leads the line up top today.
