No new worries for Robins

Bristol City have no fresh injury worries as they look to make it back-to-back victories when they host Coventry.


The Robins moved out of the relegation zone with their first victory of 2014 and match-winner Marvin Elliott, who scored both goals having stepped off the bench, will hope he has done enough to earn a start against the Sky Blues.


Karleigh Osborne looks set to miss out once more with a hamstring strain which means manager Steve Cotterill will probably continue with his 3-5-2 formation with Adam El-Abd, Aden Flint and Derrick Williams in a three-man back-line.


Sam Baldock looks set to continue his partnership with Jay Emmanuel-Thomas as Tyrone Barnett is still working his way to full fitness while Wes Burns is likely to be used as an impact sub.


Coventry will be without new signings Rory Donnelly and Dylan McGeouch as well as John Fleck for the trip.


Striker Donnelly completed a loan move from Swansea on transfer deadline day but has returned to south Wales for personal reasons, with boss Steven Pressley insisting: "Both clubs are working on a solution to the situation."





McGeouch, a loan arrival from Celtic, is ruled out through illness, as is fellow midfielder Fleck. Long-term absentee Callum Wilson (shoulder) remains sidelined.





However, striker Nathan Delfouneso is again hoping to make his City debut having seen Saturday's clash against Walsall postponed.
