Coventry City manager Micky Adams is prepared to bide his time in the transfer market despite seeing his Gary McSheffrey-less side draw 0-0 with Leicester on Friday night.

‘I told the players that Gary McSheffrey has been a great player for us but we need a new hero and that we needed someone else to step up and be that man,’ said Adams after the Ricoh Arena clash in which Don Hutchison hit the post for City and Dele Adebola came close to a late winner.

‘We are in no rush to sign someone before the transfer window closes because we can get someone on loan and then spend the money in January if we need to.

‘There are funds there but the kitty is far less than the £4m.’

Leicester City boss Rob Kelly said: ‘I thought we played well in the first half and then had to show the other side of our game in the second period.’
