'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Will triple signing be enough to save City?

Alex Nimely, Hermann Hreidarsson and an unnamed Premiership striker are the men Andy Thorn hopes will boost his Coventry City squad sufficiently to spark a move towards survival in the Championship.

Young Manchester City forward Nimely arrives at the club on Monday and is set to be followed by veteran defender Hreidarsson on a deal until the end of the season to address the problem left-back area.

'He brings experience, a presence in both boxes and he's a leader in a position that we need covering,' said Thorn of the Icelander and it's a fair point given the way City have been caught out far too often on their left-hand side this season.

Two inexperienced loan forwards however have a big task ahead of them to replace Lukas Jutkiewicz and get the goals that heve been so sorely lacking from the Sky Blues' make-up during the campaign and which were once again missing from an otherwise positive performance at Derby on Saturday.

'options'

With Freddy Eastwood having forced his way back into the first-team picture Thorn will actually have some options up front when Middlesbrough come to the Ricoh Arena this weekend.

His faith in his players remains unwavering despite increasingly pointed remarks at the restraints being placed on him by those above him.

Despite City's terrible away form and rock-bottom league position Thorn himself retains the backing of most fans who, in the absence of any concrete movement on a takeover, can only hope that the signings he has been allowed to make turn a side who earned plenty of praise in defeat at Derby into one that start winning games and scoring goals.
