Christie Struggling For Saturday

Last updated : 30 November 2011 By Covsupport News Service

Defender Cyrus Christie is struggling to be fit for Coventry City's trip to Portsmouth on Saturday.

Christie picked up a calf injury during the 2-1 defeat at Brighton and had to be replaced by Richard Wood, five minutes before the break.

Speaking to the CT, Andy Thorn said: “Cyrus has got a calf strain at the minute so he’s struggling for Saturday.

“He felt it a few days before the match but thought he would be all right to start and then it got progressively worse during the game and had to come off.

"He’s struggling at the minute so we’ll have to see how he is closer to the game, but we’ll have enough to be able to acquit ourselves well on Saturday.”
