City boss on new signing

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has said that new signing Danny Philliskirk fits into his philosophy.

The midfielder impressed in two U21 games, the first when he scored twice for Sheffield United against City and the second when he played for Lee Carsley's side in the 3-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday and has been given a contract until the end of the season.

Speaking to club journalist Kieran Crowley, Mark Robins said: “Danny has been with Sheffield United for a couple of years and, prior to that had been acquired by Chelsea. 

“This fits into our policy of trying to develop younger players who can step through to the first team.   "We will assess the situation and give Danny the opportunity to earn himself a longer term contract.”   Full story;
