Nilsson To Arrive In England Today

Coventry City could gain one defender and lose two as they prepare to face Derby County at Pride Park on Saturday.

The Sky Blues may be without Paul Williams and David Burrows who are sidelined with injury.

Williams missed Saturday’s 2-1 win over Wimbledon after picking up a groin strain in the defeat at Leicester a week before, while Burrows played only half Saturday’s game because of a thigh strain.

But as they started intensive treatment to be fit in time for the game which could secure City’s place in the Premiership, Roland Nilsson came back in contention.

Nilsson was due to arrive back in England today after recovering from the injured ribs and punctured lung he picked up in the game at Arsenal in March.

He will undergo tests to see if he will play a game before leaving at the end of the season to join former club Helsingborg as director of football.

The Sky Blues look set to have a full contingent of supporters cheering them on for their final away game of the season next Saturday.

There has been a big demand for tickets to see the Derby clash at Pride Park and only 700 of the 3,000 allocation remain.

Ticket officer Jamie Roberts said:

"We are hoping that Saturday’s good performance and victory will encourage people to travel and hopefully see us make mathematically sure of our place in the Premiership.

"Derby is not far to travel and Pride Park really is a fabulous ground."

There also looks set to be a big crowd for the final Premiership game of the season when Leeds United visit Highfield Road a week on Sunday.

Leeds sold their 4,000 allocation out in just three hours!
