Coventry welcome back strike duo Callum Wilson and Chuba Akpom for Sunday's home clash against Shrewsbury.

Wilson, who has 15 goals to his name this season, returns to the fold after eight weeks on the sidelines recovering from a dislocated shoulder as the Sky Blues look to arrest a run of four defeats in five games.

Loanee Akpom, meanwhile, missed last weekend's 3-1 defeat at Tranmere having been temporarily recalled by parent club Arsenal.

Fellow striker Nathan Delfouneso remains unlikely to feature having not trained again this week due to his thigh injury.

Shrewsbury manager Mike Jackson must decide whether to stick or twist for Sunday's short trip to Coventry.

Having rung the changes for the club's previous two matches, Shrews came from behind to claim a superb 3-2 victory at relegation rivals Notts County last weekend - securing a first win in eight games.

David McAllister, Jon Taylor and Tom Eaves were recalled at Meadow Lane and will be hoping to keep hold of their starting berths.

Midfielders Luke Summerfield and Aaron Wildig (both thigh) continue to be monitored, striker Tom Bradshaw (knee) has been ruled out long-term while on-loan Fraser Fyvie has returned to parent club Wigan.
