McSheffrey Injuries Adds To Striking Woes

Coventry City have failed in an audacious bid to sign Southampton striker Marian Pahars, while their striking crisis has deepened with an injury to teenage star Gary McSheffrey.

Saints boss Glenn Hoddle has admitted that Coventry enquired about signing Pahars, who scored 16 goals last season.

Hoddle told Teamtalk:

''Coventry did get in touch about Marian but the conversation lasted about 30 seconds and that was the end of it.''

Pahars, aged 23, recently signed a new four-year extension to his contract and has settled in Southampton.

Meanwhile, the Sky Blues have suffered another injury blow, with youngster Gary McSheffrey being ruled out for several weeks with a back injury.

Two years ago he became the youngest Coventry player when he appeared as a sub.

Recently he was selected for the England under-18 side for a game against Israel, but now has had to withdraw.

He has had treatment for a hip injury, but has now been diagnosed with a hairline fracture of his back.
