Coventry City central defender Jordan Turnbull is set to line up for the Sky Blues on Saturday against the club where he spent both the 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons on loan.

The 22-year-old was a mainstay of the Swindon Town side during those campaigns, playing at the Ricoh Arena in January 2015 as a very impressive visiting team swept to victory in a live televised clash.

He moved to Coventry, from parent club Southampton, in the summer of 2016 and despite the fact that City lie at the foot of the table, Swindon head coach Luke Williams remains a fan of the player.

Speaking to the Swindon Advertiser ahead of this Saturday’s vital game at the bottom, Williams believes that experiencing a season of struggle will not necessarily be a bad thing for the player.

‘Jordan Turnbull is a very good footballer who is capable of playing at least one level higher.

‘I believe that the boy can play at the very top level. He’s got all the ability, he’s got the right personality and he is going to have a long career.’

Saturday may also be a strange day for Conor Thomas as he returns to the Ricoh Arena but on the opposite side.

Still only 23, the midfielder ended his long association with the Sky Blues in the summer and has since made 24 league appearances for his new club.
