The key midfielder missed Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Leeds through suspension having been sent off in the 1-0 win over Burnley last time out.

City's loss at Elland Road means they have followed up victory with defeat over each of their first five games of the season, although two wins from two at the Liberty Stadium provides cause for optimism ahead of the visit of the Sky Blues.

Goalkeeper Dorus de Vries is okay despite bruising to his knee following a heavy challenge from Leeds striker Luciano Becchio.

Striker Shefki Kuqi has completed a loan switch to Derby and so will not be available to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Craig Beattie (calf), Angel Rangel (thigh), Ferrie Bodde (knee), Gorka Pintado (shoulder) and Tom Butler (thigh) all continue to sit in the stands.
