City defender's chance to impress potential buyers

City defender's chance to impress potential buyers

Elliott Ward is poised to start Tuesday night's trip to Watford, knowing that his Coventry City career may have only a few months left to run.

Ben Turner's injury together with James McPake's long-term absence from the side means the 24-year-old, back to full fitness himself after a minor knee operation, should get a decent run in the side and possibly impress interested clubs.

He told the Coventry Telegraph recently: 'If I play a few, which I want to and need to, then January could be an option but if I am not playing then people soon forget you and it will be a case of leaving at the end of the season.

'That's what I expect anyway, to see out the rest of the year and then leave. But until then I want to be playing and my aim is to push back into the team.

'Things do change in football so who knows what will happen but I believe it is set in stone at the moment.'

Patrick van Aanholt is set to replace Marcus Hall in the back four.
