Jordan Willis could be in contention for a return to the Coventry starting line up against Shrewsbury.

The centre-back was an unused substitute against Bradford after missing two games with a knee injury but he made his come back at Portsmouth on Monday from the bench.

Tom Bayliss (broken wrist) will not play again until next season while David Meyler has not featured since suffering a dislocated shoulder against Bristol Rovers on April 6.

Coventry must win to keep their faint play-off hopes alive.

On the final day of the campaign the Sky Blues travel to Doncaster, who currently occupy sixth spot and are five points in front of Mark Robins’ team.

Victory for Shrewsbury would guarantee their League One survival and Town boss Sam Ricketts could name an unchanged side, despite defeat against Oxford last time.

Ryan Sears is among those players hoping the manager twists rather than sticks, having made way for the return of James Bolton on Monday in the only change to the starting XI.

Striker Fejiri Okenabirhie is another who would come into Ricketts’ thinking should he decide to change anything.

Midfielder David Edwards and goalkeeper Steve Arnold remain on the sidelines for the Shrews, who are four points above the drop zone.
