What is the team news?

McCarthy will be sweating on the availability of Leandro Bacuna, Joe Ralls and Ryan Giles for the trip to Coventry.

All three missed the game against Forest, with Bacuna limping off in the warm-up, Ralls picking up a groin issue late last week and Giles suffering with illness.

Isaac Vassell and Lee Tomlin remain absent.

Kieffer Moore was only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench at the City Ground, but that could change against the Sky Blues.

What have the managers said

Mark Robins: “We have to maintain that focus.

“You can see that they’re fighting for each other, that they’re desperate to get the points. They want that success and to win games to do well for the supporters. It’s been a great start at home and we’ve got to try and pick up points away from home a little bit better than we did last season.

“Really, we’ve got to just keep doing the work and not looking too far ahead.”

Mick McCarthy: “It’s not been the perfect setup, but it ends up being perfect when people come in and do a job. I’m delighted for the lads making their league debuts, Sam Bowen and Kieron Evans; it’s great for them.

“Kieron scored two goals for the U23s in midweek, one with his left foot and one with his right. He came on today and did an honest job, but he’s a good technical player.

“It’s tough enough having a couple of days to get your head around the fact that you’re going to start, and to prepare. So to get the call ten minutes before kick-off, Sam came in and did well. He’s been doing really well in training.”

Who is the referee?

Michael Salisbury will whistle the match, supported by Constantine Hatzidakis and Marc Perry. Stephen Martin is the fourth official.
