THE TEAM NEWS

COVENTRY

  • Coventry City had to settle for a goalless draw at Burton Albion on Saturday but it was enough to move them to the top of the League 1 table.
  • Michael Rose came off with an injury in the previous win over Blackpool and did not recover in time for Saturday's match, so Dominic Hyam is set to start alongside Kyle McFadzean in the centre of defence once again.
  • Brandon Mason is close to returning having played 90 minutes for the Under-23s last week while loanee Callum O'Hare, who has scored twice in four substitute appearances, could make his first start.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Marosi; Dabo, McFadzean, Hyam, McCallum; Westbrooke, Walsh, O'Hare; Jobello, Godden, Hiwula-Mayifuila

Unavailable: Jones (Injured), Pask (Injured), Bartlett (Injured)

Doubtful: Mason (Injured), Kelly (Injured), Rose (Injured)

AFC WIMBLEDON

  • AFC Wimbledon are still looking for their first win in any competition this season after drawing 1-1 at home to Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.
  • Manager Wally Downes made three changes to his side against Shrewsbury, with on-loan striker Marcus Forss handed his first start after scoring on his debut at MK Dons.
  • Joe McDonnell and Terrell Thomas both dropped out of the squad entirely against the Shrews having started the previous match as manager Wally Downes named a youthful bench again.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Trott; Kalambayi, Nightingale, Delaney; O'Neill, Hartigan, Wagstaff, Reilly, Guinness-Walker; Pigott, Forss

Unavailable: Wordsworth (Injured), Ashley (Injured), McDonald (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Coventry's temporary home of St. Andrews has been a surprising fortress for the Sky Blues so far this season. The League 1 leaders have won all four of their league games there and they should maintain that run against AFC Wimbledon, who are yet to pick up any points on their travels.
