MIDFIELDER Bryn Morris has been recalled from his loan spell with the Sky Blues because of a lack of first team action.

Parent club Middlesbrough had initially let the England Under-20 player move to the Ricoh Arena on a season-long loan back in August in a bid to continue his development with more game time.

But Morris has struggled to break into Tony Mowbray’s side ahead of the likes of John Fleck and Romain Vincelot and has made just seven appearances, most of which have come from the bench.

And Championship side Middlesbrough have invoked the 24-hour recall option as part of the loan deal.

The Sky Blues return to action this Saturday when they will look to end a run of three games without a win as they take on Peterborough United at the Ricoh Arena (3pm).

Winger Ruben Lameiras could be called back into Mowbray’s starting line-up after impressing as a second half substitute at Swindon, while Joe Cole is likely to make his home debut.

Mowbray was in charge of the Sky Blues the last time the two sides met at London Road back in March when youngster Blair Turgott scored the only goal of the game.

The Sky Blues have only ever lost once at home to Peterborough back in 1961 and they have yet to lose to The Posh at the Ricoh, having won three of the last four meetings.

But Peterborough have impressed on their travels in recent weeks having picked up ten points from a possible 12 in their last four away fixtures.
