City Hand Chance To Ex-Chelsea Man

Danny Philliskirk will look to play a part in Coventry City's push for the play-offs and earn himself a longer deal at the Ricoh Arena after the trialist forward earned himself a contract until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old will look to kickstart his career after a disappointing spell with Sheffield United but has impressed Mark Robins over the past week.

'Danny has been with Sheffield United for a couple of years and prior to that had been acquired by Chelsea,' said the Sky Blues boss.

'This fits into our policy of trying to develop younger players who can step through to the first team. We will assess the situation at the end of the season, while giving Danny the opportunity to earn himself a longer-term contract.'

Philliskirk is being seen as one for the future but comes into contention for Saturday's game against Yeovil in which both sides are waiting on their first-choice goalkeepers. City's Joe Murphy suffered a hamstring injury in the first-half of their JPT clash with Crewe while the Glovers' Marek Stech is about to become a father and will leave any potential departure until the morning of the match.
