COVENTRY City travel to Vitality Stadium with a handful of injury doubts following their two 0-0 draws at Sheffield United and when hosting Birmingham City over the last week.

Star Brazilian-born midfielder Gustavo Hamer is a doubt after being replaced through injury in the second-half versus Birmingham.

Key defender Jake Clarke-Salter has returned to parent club Chelsea as he nurses an Achilles injury and is set to miss out at Vitality Stadium.

Martyn Waghorn also remains a doubt having been absent from the last four matchday squads due to a shoulder injury suffered in training.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old promising midfielder Josh Eccles played his first game back for the Under-23s in their 6-0 thrashing at Hull City at the weekend.

Coventry remain fifth in the Championship and are chasing an unlikely playoff berth following promotion during the 2019-20 season and a 16th placed finish last campaign.

Speaking ahead of their visit to Cherries, Coventry boss Mark Robins said: “Gustavo Hamer came off because he got a bang on his foot.

"So he was limping around and at that stage of the game we needed some more impetus.

"And you miss him anyway because he has some really good quality.”

On Clarke-Salter, he added: “Jake’s back at Chelsea and we await to hear back from them on him, hopefully it won’t be too long but it may be a week or two weeks, maybe three weeks.”
