Both sides have key men missing for Saturday’s Championship clash between Coventry City and Crystal Palace at the Ricoh Arena but both managers have their key man available for what has become an important game for both sides.

Marlon King is back for the Sky Blues having recovered from a bout of flu and will be looking to continue his goalscoring run while hoping that his team do not throw away another lead that he has given them.

Keiren Westwood is also fit but Lee Carsley and Ben Turner are unlikely to return just yet.

For Palace, manager Dougie Freedman is without Neil Danns and Nathaniel Clyne but he does have Darren Ambrose and believes the midfielder is getting back to his best after a lengthy lay-off.

‘Every week he is getting fitter and fitter and that is fantastic news for Crystal Palace,’ Freedman told the Croydon Advertiser.

‘Having Darren fit and firing will be the equivalent of bringing in a top quality signing at a crucial stage of the season.

‘He’s a great player and I think he will show everyone that again in the coming weeks.’
