Coventry City team news: Amadou Bakayoko pushing to start

Coventry City will be looking to pick up where they left off from the weekend when they meet Forest Green Rovers in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday.

The Sky Blues managed to get a victory against Charlton Athletic at the weekend and will be confident of getting a result against the League Two outfit as they look to defend the title they won last season.

However, the Ricoh Arena side will need to be at their best as the Gloucestershire club are currently performing well in their division and also top the group in the competition.

Coventry, on the other hand, were beaten by Arsenal’s developmental side in their opening game of the tournament and will need to get the three points to be within a shot of reaching the next round.

And, manager Mark Robins could be prepared to make changes to ensure that they are within a chance.

Amadou Bakayoko is looking to push for a start after scoring a brace to down Charlton at the weekend.

The Verdict:

Robins could look to field a strong side in their efforts to keep up the pace with the others as they look to qualify for the next round from the group and defend their title.

Bakayoko enjoyed netting two goals against the Addicks from the bench and has given Robins a decision to make about whether to start him or not.

However, Coventry’s form has been rather patchy this season and will need to be at their best if they are to get the three points from Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday night.
