Early Coventry team news

14 February 2014

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson is hoping to have the same group of players from Tuesday's match up at Carlisle United available to him for Saturday's trip to Coventry City.

Striker Aaron Mclean is unfortunately a doubt, however, after missing training this Thursday with a virus.

Andy Gray would most probably be first in place line to replace Mclean should the former Hull City forward be deemed unfit to travel.

Rory McArdle came through unscathed after playing against Carlisle still sporting a nasty gash picked up during an accidental clash of heads in training last weekend.

McArdle's stitches have now come out of the wound above his left eye and he should be fine to keep his place in City's back four as a result.

Mark Yeates is back in training now following a recent knee injury but it isn't know yet whether Parkinson will consider him ready to be in contention for this weekend.

Fellow wingers Garry Thompson and Kyle Bennett are likely to go head-to-head for the spot on City's right flank, especially if Yeates isn't involved.


Coventry City officials are currently keeping the club up to date regarding the state of the pitch at Sixfields Stadium.

Despite heavy rain being forecast for this Friday, the covers are on the playing surface at Sixfields in an attempt to protect the pitch.

The football club will update supporters further if and when anything changes.
