Bristol City v Coventry preview

Date published: Friday 17th April 2015 10:36

Bristol City are likely to name an unchanged squad as they look to finish a memorable week on a high when Coventry come to Ashton Gate.

The Robins thumped Bradford 6-0 to secure promotion to the Championship with three games to go and they have no injury or suspension worries as they look to be crowned winners of the division.

Mark Little’s shoulder injury keeps him sidelined and Steve Cotterill’s side could be celebrating before kick-off if Preston suffer a shock defeat at Port Vale on Friday evening.

That would mean City are champions without having kicked a ball.

Tony Mowbray could name an unchanged squad with Coventry still needing the points to clinch survival.

Danny Pugh (ankle) and Marcus Tudgay (hamstring) are out but Tudgay is close to a return for the Sky Blues.

They are four points above the bottom four but boss Mowbray insisted Coventry are not safe yet.

He told the Coventry Telegraph: “I don’t think so yet. We have to be professional and have to strive for every point, every tackle and pass until we are mathematically safe.”
