Coventry v Stevenage preview
Last Updated: 19/04/18 7:05pm
Coventry boss Mark Robins has no new injury problems ahead of Friday night's encounter with Stevenage.
The Sky Blues currently occupy the last play-off spot in the League Two table by one point but have a game in hand over Mansfield in eighth.
Robins must decide whether to hand Tom Bayliss a place in his starting line-up as he looks to manage the young midfielder's workload. Long-term absentees Jodi Jones and Tony Andreu remain on the sidelines.
Ben Sheaf could come back into Stevenage's XI after he was rested for last weekend's 2-0 defeat to Cambridge. Jack King was deployed in the defensive midfield role in his absence but Sheaf is available to return on Friday.
Midfielders Chris Whelpdale, John Goddard and Dale Gorman all stepped off the bench against the U's and could come into boss Dino Maamria's thoughts. Mark McKee and Dean Bowditch will both be assessed.
Coventry are unbeaten in their last four league games against Stevenage (W3 D1), keeping two clean sheets in this run.
Stevenage's only victory over Coventry in the Football League came in the first such meeting between the two sides, as they secured a 2-1 away victory over the Sky Blues in September 2012.
Coventry, who lost 6-2 to Yeovil in their last match at the Ricoh Arena, could lose consecutive home games in the fourth tier for the first time in their history. They last lost in back-to-back home league matches in March 2017 whilst in League One (run of three defeats).
The Boro have kept consecutive clean sheets on their travels in the league for the first time since September. They haven't kept three in a row since January 2015.
Marc McNulty has been directly involved in seven goals in his last five league games (three goals, four assists), assisting at least one goal in each of his last three.
