City youngsters set for chance

Assuming the Sky Blues are clear of relegation trouble and out of the race for the play-offs, Coleman is keen to put one or two youngsters through their paces in the first team to see how they shape up ahead of next season.

The Welshman had to call on several teenagers amid an injury crisis in at the turn of the year when defender Curtis Wynter was given two starts and a substitute appearance and midfielder Adam Walker also got a run-out from the bench.

Right-back Jordan Clarke, midfielder Sean Fraser and winger Ashley Cain were also named in matchday squads for cup games.

"If we get to the stage where we can't slip down any further and not get any higher - and I imagine that will be with two or three games to go - I may try some of the younger lads," said Coleman. "I will give them a start and see how they are fixed.

"We are going to have another very important year next year and it will be nice to see who can cope with it and who can't. So maybe if we get to that stage I might try one or two and see how they get on."
