Kelly Returns

Leeds welcome one player back from suspension but lose two more. Gary Kelly returns after serving a one-game ban for being booked five times, but teenage defender Simon Walton and on-loan midfielder Liam Miller are both suspended.

Walton was sent off for two bookable offences against Wolves and Miller was booked for the fifth time.

Steve Stone is missing, with another operation on his Achilles casting doubt on whether he will ever play again.

Full-back Frazer Richardson misses out with a knee injury, while the game comes too soon for Iceland international midfielder Gylfi Einarsson (dislocated shoulder).

Striker Richard Cresswell, who is returning from injury himself, may play a part as fellow forward Rob Hulse awaits confirmation on whether he needs an operation on his hip.


Manager Micky Adams has plenty of injury problems to contend with for Coventry's trip to Elland Road.

The Sky Blues will head to Yorkshire buoyed by their 1-0 win over QPR at Loftus Road where City recorded their first away win of the Championship campaign so far.

But Adams will be unable to call on defender Stuart Giddings as the left-back has undergone a second operation aimed at solving long-term knee problems.

And midfielder Stephen Hughes has been laid low by an Achilles tendon injury.

Also struggling are defenders Matt Heath and Marcus Hall, who have respective back and calf injuries, while Neil Wood has a knee problem too.

However, striker Stern John, who has made an early return to Coventry following a loan spell at Derby, could return to contention, with Adams saying: 'At this time of the year, any player we get back into the squad is a valuable player.'
