Froggatt Will Play On Saturday

Steve Froggatt has passed himself fit to play for Coventry City in Saturday’s hugely important match at Sheffield Wednesday.

Most Coventry fans did not realise that he took a fearful kick to the head during last week’s ‘friendly’ match at Dundee.

The winger was taken to hospital for X-rays, but fortunately there was no damage apart from bruising.

He said:

"It was just before half-time when I dived to try to score with a header. The Scottish defender did not know I was coming in from behind him and he swung his boot to clear the ball.

"He caught me at the side of the eye. It was a complete accident and no blame could be attached to him.

"The doctors said there was no damage but the bruising is all around my eye and along the side of my head. It throbs when I lie down and I have been trying not to head the ball in training this week.

"But there will be no problem about playing at Hillsborough. It is a vitally important match and if possible we want to get maximum points from this match and the one against Southampton at Highfield Road on Easter Monday.

"Six points at this stage of the season would be a massive boost and could be all-important when the final reckoning comes in May."

Coventry will be without full backs Roland Nilsson and David Burrows and midfielder Paul Telfer for this match.

Burrows and Telfer will be banned for exceeding the yellow cards ruling. Nilsson is injured and will be sorry to miss this last chance to play against his former club.

He is back home in Sweden recovering from his punctured lung and fractured ribs received against Arsenal. He is leaving Coventry and England at the end of the season to take up a new post at Helsingborg.
