Coventry City have recalled Scott Shearer from Rushden & Diamonds.Coventry City have recalled Scott Shearer from his loan spell at Rushden & Diamonds.
Shearer has returned to Highfield Road after on-loan Ian Bennett was sent off against Stoke.
Bennett handled the ball outside the box and received his marching orders. A subsequent appeal failed to get the automatic ban overturned.
Shearer has returned to Coventry to train, but Rushden are hoping that, after Bennett's ban, he can continue his loan period.
Coventry's goalkeeper problems have also seen Luke Steele injured, and manager Micky Adams is desperate to make sure he does not find himself without an experienced keeper.
Shearer has impressed for Rushden in the three games he has played for the club since his move in February.
