Perch set for run-out in reserves
Published : 26 Oct 2009 14:11:00
The 24-year-old has been out since April after suffering a stress fracture to one of his shins. Perch has been back in full training for a couple of weeks but is pencilled in for his first taste of match action when Coventry's second string visit the City Ground. The Reds academy product was surprisingly named as a substitute for Saturday's Championship draw against Crystal Palace. Boss Billy Davies called Perch into his squad to make up the numbers after losing the services of Guy Moussi to suspension and Dexter Blackstock to injury but he was not required to play at Selhurst Park. Fellow defender Joel Lynch, who is working his way back to full fitness after a severe bout of food poisoning, is also expected to feature against Coventry.
