Match Preview

Sky Blues lacking Nimely presence Alex Nimely is again unlikely to be involved as Coventry take on Doncaster in search of the win required to maintain any hope of survival in the npower Championship. The on-loan Manchester City striker (hamstring) missed Tuesday's 1-0 home defeat to Millwall, a result which leaves the Sky Blues five points adrift of safety with only six left to play for. Survival is now out of Coventry's hands, with Andy Thorn's side relegated to npower League One regardless of their efforts at the Ricoh Arena should fourth-bottom Bristol City beat Barnsley at Ashton Gate. Midfielder Carl Baker made his return from a hamstring injury as a second-half substitute in midweek and will again hope to be involved. But defenders Cyrus Christie, Nathan Cameron, Richard Wood (all knee) and Hermann Hreidarsson (shoulder) have all been ruled out for the remainder of the season. Shelton Martis and Giles Barnes are injury doubts for Doncaster as Dean Saunders' relegated outfit prepare to travel to npower Championship strugglers Coventry. Defender Martis has endured an injury-plagued campaign and he was substituted with a calf injury during the midweek draw at Middlesbrough, while midfielder Barnes - an unused substitute at the Riverside Stadium - has a back problem. Winger Kyle Bennett did come off the bench on Tuesday night and suffered no adverse reaction to his recurring toe injury, while youth teamer James Husband will be hoping for further action having made his senior debut as a second-half replacement for Martis in the north east. Habib Beye is once again absent from the Rovers defence as he completes a two-match ban for his red card in last weekend's 4-3 defeat to Portsmouth. Brian Stock (groin) and Tommy Spurr (broken hand) are out for the rest of the season, while El-Hadji Diouf (hamstring) is also unlikely to feature again this term. Midfielder Martin Woods (knee) and forward Habib Bamogo (hamstring) have returned to training, but the Ricoh Arena clash comes too soon for them.
