McSheffrey: Could feature

McSheffrey: Could feature

Coventry striker Cody McDonald is hoping to push himself into manager Andy Thorn's plans.

McDonald has struggled with fitness since arriving from Norwich and has only made one league start this season, but he did impress as a substitute in Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Leeds.

Midfielder Gary McSheffrey (back) may feature in the squad but his fitness will be assessed on Saturday having narrowly missed out against his former club on Tuesday.

Striker Carl Baker, who recently signed a new contract with the Sky Blues, also returned to training this week following an ankle injury, but is a couple of weeks away from first-team action.

Burnley boss Eddie Howe will travel to Coventry with only 16 senior players available to him once again.

The Clarets are still without a quartet of key figures as they bid to recover from back-to-back defeats against Reading and Barnsley.

Striker Martin Paterson (thigh) and defender Michael Duff (knee) are back in training but are still considered to a be a few weeks away from returning to action.

Summer signing Danny Ings (knee) and long-serving goalkeeper Brian Jensen (groin) are also out for the long term.

Howe named an unchanged starting XI for the game against Barnsley and although his thin squad is stretched, he may consider some changes as the Clarets have scored just once in their last three outings.
