Only one change for Coventry City’s FA Cup giant-killing side against Exeter

Coventry City boss Mark Robins has kept faith with all but one of the giant killing FA Cup winning side as they get back to league action against Exeter City this afternoon.

The only change from the heroic Sky Blues team that beat Premier League Stoke City is the return of first choice goalkeeper Lee Burge, who comes back into the side for Liam O’Brien after being rested last weekend due to a minor hip injury.

Loan player Jordan Maguire-Drew makes his second start for the club following his move from Brighton, and certainly deserves his place after an impressive showing against the Potters, while fellow new recruit Josh Barrett is included on the bench.

The exciting 19-year-old forward, who has joined on loan from Reading, is yet to make his debut for the club and provides an attacking option among the substitutes who include Jordan Ponticelli and Stuart Beavon, both of whom hit five goals between them in the Under-23s on Monday.

Centre-half Rod McDonald returns to the squad but Tom Davies has retained his place in the back four alongside Jordan Willis, while there is no sign of midfielders Liam kelly and Peter Vincenti, both of whom returned to training this week.

And up front leading scorer Marc McNulty continues his partnership with Max Biamou in what is expected to be a 4-4-2 formation.

City (4-4-2): Lee Burge; Jack Grimmer, Jordan Willis, Tom Davies, Chris Stokes; Jordan Maguire-Drew, Tom Bayliss, Michael Doyle, Jordan Shipley; Marc McNulty, Max Biamou.

Subs: Liam O’Brien (GK), Rod McDonald, Ryan Haynes, Ben Stevenson, Josh Barrett, Stuart Beavon, Jordan Ponticelli.
