Telfer Escapes Ban

Coventry City midfielder Paul Telfer will play against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Saturday.

The Scot, a regular in Gordon Strachan’s side, was expected to be banned after being hauled before the FA for picking up 11 bookings this season.

But he escaped with a warning and a 2,000 fine, leaving him clear to line-up in what will be a vital weekend for the Sky Blues.

City take on Southampton at Highfield Road on Monday knowing that victory could see them on the way to safety.
