Magnus HedmanINJURIES : KEEPER CRISIS

Coventry are facing a keeper crisis ahead of their game against Walsall on Sunday.

Their first three choices - Magnus Hedman, Andy Goram and Morten Hyldegaard - are all out injured.

Youth team keeper Gary Montgomery made a surprise debut in the game against Chelsea last night after Hedman had a hamstring problem in the warm-up minutes before kick-off.

The 19 year old couldn't be blamed for either of the Chelsea goals but Nilsson will not want to risk going into Sunday's game without any other keeper cover.

If the news from the treatment room doesn't look promising over the next 24 hours Nilsson is likely to make a move for a loan keeper for short-term cover.

Loan candidates may include Mark Bosnich (Chelsea), Tim Flowers (Leicester City) and Stephen Bywater (West Ham) all of whom are struggling to get first team action with their respective clubs.

Gary BreenGARY BREEN : SOUTHAMPTON TARGET?

Southampton boss Stuart Gray is reported to be about to make a £3.5 million bid for Irish international Gary Breen.

The Coventry centre-back is being seen as an ideal replacement for Dean Richards who recently left the Saints for Spurs in a £8.1 million deal.

Southampton have apparently had their scouts watching Breen over the last month but they have held off making a move while he recovered from a hamstring strain.

With Breen now fully fit Southampton may be about to make an offer.

Breen might however prefer to hang on at Highfield Road until the summer when he can leave on a Bosman free transfer. If he performs well in the World Cup finals his valuation may be increased.

Breen's agent is Sky Andrew who also acts for Sol Campbell.

TICKETS : WALSALL v COVENTRY

Coventry have been allocated an extra 400 tickets for the Nationwide game against Walsall after the initial quota sold out.

The 1850 tickets originally allocated sold out within days of them going on general sale.

These tickets are on sale now from the Ticket Office, but are expected to go very quickly.

The game is on Sunday 14h October kick off 6.15pm. Tickets are priced at £16 for adults and £12 for under 16ís and over 60ís.
