Andy Rose to miss Mark Robins' Sky Blues return

Mark Robins will take charge of his first match in his second spell as manager of Coventry when Bradford visit the Ricoh Arena.

Robins, who replaced the sacked Russell Slade this week, will be without midfielder Andy Rose, who is awaiting the results of scans on a knee injury.

Rose would likely have missed this weekend's clash anyway after suffering concussion in a clash of heads during the first half of last weekend's draw with Shrewsbury.

Ruben Lameiras could come into the squad after recovering from his own concussion, but striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni (hamstring) remains sidelined.

Defender Stephen Darby will return to the Bradford squad.

Darby has not featured for the first team since the middle of February but has now recovered from an arm injury.

However, boss Stuart McCall said on Thursday that midfielder Nicky Law needs more time to recover from a knee problem.

McCall does have all four of his top strikers available, however, with Charlie Wyke, Alex Jones, Jordy Hiwula and Billy Clarke vying for places in the starting XI.
