City sweating on influential pair

Striker Best scored a well-taken opener in the club's heartbreaking 2-1 FA Cup defeat against Portsmouth on Tuesday night but had to come off shortly into extra time nursing a thigh injury. Influential midfielder Clingan, meanwhile, was forced off at the interval suffering with mild concussion following a clash with Papa Bouba Diop. But Coleman is hopeful both will be okay for the trip to Portman Road as his Sky Blues side look to make it five wins in their last six Championship games. New signings Carl Baker and Gary Deegan return and are both pushing to start having been ineligible to face Pompey, as do on-loan duo Leon Barnett and Gary Madine who were denied permission to play by their parent clubs.
