Coventry are confident of an injury boost ahead of their Sky Bet League One match against Rochdale at St Andrew’s on Saturday.
Jordy Hiwula, who has been out for three weeks with an ankle injury, is back in training and could ease a strikers crisis for City.
The home side were forced to play Saturday’s FA Cup tie at Colchester with just one fit and available front man in Amadou Bakayoko.
Manager Mark Robins could also welcome back long-term casualties Jamie Allen, Jodi Jones and Josh Pask for their first appearances of the season.
Rochdale, who are seven points behind City in 15th place, will be “light on numbers” after their mid-week EFL Trophy tie at Bradford, according to first-team coach Lee Riley.
The visitors will be without defender Luke Matheson, the teenager who scored against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford, as he is away on international duty with England Under-18s.
Rhys Norrington-Davies is also on international duty with Wales Under-21s.
But Aaron Wilbraham should be available after completing a suspension for his red card at Oxford.
