COVENTRY City manager Russell Slade has announced the side to face Swindon Town at the Ricoh Arena this afternoon.

Slade has made no changes from last week’s side which defeated Gillingham 2-1, which earned the Sky Blues their first league win under Slade’s control.

Charles-Cook remains on the bench as substitute keeper, but Slade has kept his attacking options open by naming Beavon and Yakubu on the bench too.

Charles Vernam will be on the bench despite returning to training this week after treatment on a shoulder injury.

Full Sky Blues line up: Burge (GK), Di. Kelly-Evans, Clarke (C), Turnbull, Haynes, G.Thomas, Foley, Rose, Reilly, K.Thomas, Tudgay.

Subs: Charles-Cook (GK), Rawson, Reid, Jones, Yakubu, Vernam, Beavon.

Swindon have also named an unchanged side from their 0-0 draw against Oldham last weekend.

Full Swindon Town line up: Lawrence Vigouroux (GK), Nathan Thompson (C), Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill, Ben Gladwin, Jon Obika, James Brophy, Nicky Ajose, Charlie Colkett, Rohan Ince, Brad Barry, Lloyd Jones.
