Coventry City manager Andy Thorn believes that Hermann Hreidarsson will still be vital to the team even if he cannot play.
The Icelandic defender has had surgery on his shoulder but will be out for the rest of the season. However, Thorn feels that he can still have a impact on the team and told the CT's Andy Turner: "Hermann is a big character who we need round the place.
"He's got loads of experience and he will talk and help some of the younger lads through this period."
