Coventry City manager Gordon Strachan has today outlined the reasons why
left-back Marcus Hall was allowed to join Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan.

Marcus as many games as possible.
"He needs games before he can get back into the Premiership and there is an
opportunity here for him to do just that.
