Same again for Sky Blues?

Coventry boss Steven Pressley is expected to boast a full-strength squad for Sunday's encounter against Gillingham at Sixfields.

The Scot watched his Sky Blues side record a 2-0 win over Colchester last weekend to continue their fine start to the season and move off the foot of League One following their 10-point deduction prior to the start of the campaign.

Left-back Blair Adams returned from a hamstring injury to face the U's and, with no new injury or suspension problems, Pressley could well send out an unchanged XI against the winless Gills.

Midfielder Adam Barton and strikers Mathieu Manset and Billy Daniels continue to knock on the door with their displays for the club's Under-21 side.

Gillingham right-back Charlie Lee - transfer listed by the club on Friday along with Chris Whelpdale, Steven Gregory and Antonio German - is suspended for the clash.

Lee saw red in last weekend's 3-2 defeat at Crawley and now serves a one-match suspension as the Gills go in search of their first win of the season at the ninth attempt.

However, Michael Harriman's return from international duty with the Republic of Ireland's Under-21 squad provides a direct replacement.

Leon Legge is a concern but the centre-back is expected to recover from a back problem in time for the encounter, while striker Cody McDonald is okay having been forced to pull out at the 11th hour last weekend due to illness.
