Paul Hall On Loan To Bury

Paul Hall, who rejected a permanent move away from Coventry City recently, has now agreed to take a four weeks’ loan at First Division strugglers Bury.

The 26 year old winger cum striker turned down a permanent transfer to Port Vale recently because he said he wanted to stay at Coventry and fight for a place in the Premiership.

He said it had always been his ambition to play at the top level and he wanted to give it longer before he lowered his sights.

He was signed last Summer for 300,000 from Portsmouth after playing for Bermuda in the World Cup Finals in France.

But he has started only four games for City and made five more appearances from the substitutes bench. His opportunities dried up when the club signed former Aston Villa winger Steve Froggatt from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Coventry’s manager Gordon Strachan said:

"We have done this to get him a game. He deserves a game and unfortunately we cannot give him a game. He is a smashing lad but he is a victim of unfortunate circumstances through no fault of his own."

Strachan is expected to stay with the team which lost 4-1 at Newcastle United on Wednesday, for Saturday’s visit by Manchester United.

It means a home debut for the Bosnian centreback Mo Konjic against the Premiership’s hottest strikers Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole.

Paul Williams is back in training following his hamstring scare at Tottenham, but might not be considered fit enough for such a big test as playing against Manchester United.

Coventry beat United in the corresponding fixture last season and need at least one point to boost confidence for the away match at Aston Villa on Saturday week.
