King Out For Three Games

Last updated : 02 January 2011 By Covsupport News Service/RD

After Coventry City striker Marlon King was sent of for a rash challenge on Ipswich's Darren O'Dea, City boss Aidy Boothroyd confirmed the club will not be appealing against the red card and so King will serve a three match ban and will miss the trip to Barnsley on Bank Holiday Monday.

Boothroyd could move McSheffrey (Pictured below), who has served a one game ban for accumulating five yellow cards, into a more central role to replace King, or he could give Freddy Eastwood, who scored City's equalising goal against Ipswich, a start.

Aron Gunnarsson is eligible to play again now he has served his three match ban for his red card last week against Norwich.

For Barnsley, Adam Hammill is a doubt after picking up a knock in the 2-2 draw at Forest.
