Injury latest Coventry City manager Aidy Boothroyd is hoping to have a number of players fit for next Saturday's home game with Leicester City.The City boss is expecting Ben Turner (hamstring injury) and Lukas Jutkiewicz (knee injury) to be fit for the game."Speaking to the CT, Boothroyd said: " Ben will be fit for the Leicester game. " It was too soon to be playing him against Millwall where I thought Richard Wood was man of the match in my eyes."Lukas has had an injection in his knee, which has been a long standing problem, but it is clearing up and he should be fit to join the others players on Tuesday to prepare for the Leicester game."James McPake has an on-going shin problem but if he rests it, this is expected to clear up and he could well be in the squad. Coventry City are missing both of their left backs at the moment and Boothroyd is eager to see both Chris Hussey (knee) and Stephen O'Halloran (back) return from their injuries. Boothroyd told the CT: "I want to get those two fit because I want to get competition going on the left where Martin Cranie has been playing."
