City top scorer Robert Earnshaw looks certain to face Coventry on Saturday despite suffering a wrist injury on international duty for Wales.

Earnshaw sustained the injury in Tuesday night's 2-0 defeat by Brazil at White Hart Lane.

But City boss Nigel Worthington today breathed a sigh of relief that there was no serious damage and said his star striker would be fit to play against the Sky Blues at the Ricoh Arena.

Worthington said: “Earnie sprained his wrist, but it has been X-rayed and there is no damage apart from being tender. It's a case of just get on with it.”

Earnshaw said of his injury: “I've had the X-ray. I've not quite broken it, but it is very, very sore. It didn't show a break, thank God, but it might as well be. That's how it feels.”

Worthington's only injury worries ahead of the Coventry game are striker Peter Thorne, who is still sidelined but making “progress” and long term casualties Joe Lewis, out for a month with a fractured cheek bone, and Matthieu Louis-Jean.
