Right back Cyrus Christie has been ruled out of tomorrow night’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Second Round tie at Leyton Orient, however Billy Daniels should be back and available for selection for manager Steven Pressley.
Christie was substituted in the second half of Saturday’s 0-1 victory at Stevenage, after rolling his ankle.
Pressley said, “We’re unsure of exactly how long we are going to be without Cyrus until he has had a scan so he will have that and we’ll take it from there.
“It’s just disappointing for the boy as well as myself because he’s been such an influential part of the team up to this point.
“This is now an opportunity though for one of our younger players to step up to the mark. It’s these kinds of situations that they have to be ready for so I’ll consider the options we have ahead of the game against Leyton Orient tomorrow night.”
However, in more positive news, Billy Daniels could be included in the first team squad for the first time in a month, following a hip injury.
The 19 year old has already scored three goals for the Sky Blues this season, and with club captain Carl Baker possibly missing again, his return to fitness is a boost for Steven Pressley.
Baker has been missing for a few weeks, and when the sides met earlier in the season in the First Round of the League Cup, which saw City lead twice only to see Leon Clarke miss a penalty and end up losing 3-2, he was controversially sent off for a late challenge.
