TEAM NEWS: Michael Rose Starts Against Watford

The defender makes his first start since November...

6 February 2021

Michael Rose is one of three changes to the side this afternoon as the Sky Blues take on Watford at St Andrew's.

This will be the defender's first start for City since the reverse fixture against the Hornets back at the start of November, as he comes into the starting eleven.

Julien Dacosta also comes into the side to make his first Championship start since joining City, after impressing against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

There's also a change in midfield as Ben Sheaf suffered a hamstring injury against Forest, so Jamie Allen lines-up alongside Matty James and Gustavo Hamer in the middle of the park.

Also, on the bench City welcome back Kyle McFadzean as well as a first appearance in the matchday squad for Deadline Day signing, Fabio Tavares.

 

Sky Blues Xl: Marko Marosi (GK), Julien Dacosta, Michael Rose, Leo Ostigard, Dom Hyam, Sam McCallum, Matty James (C), Gustavo Hamer, Callum O'Hare, Jamie Allen, Max Biamou.

Subs: Tom Billson (GK), Kyle McFadzean, Josh Pask, Josh Eccles, Jordan Shipley, Wesley Jobello, Will Bapaga, Fabio Tavares, Viktor Gyokeres.
