The main topic of conversation ahead of Coventry City’s trip to face AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday evening is whether travelling Sky Blues supporters will see an appearance from the club’s latest signing.

There was plenty of media interest on Monday as City confirmed a short-term deal for striker Yakubu after a short trial period.

Manager Russell Slade was satisfied enough with the fitness of the Nigerian to add him to his ranks and, with only sixteen games left of what looks like a forlorn relegation battle, will want to get the most out of the ex-Everton and Middlesbrough man as soon as he can.

Stuart Beavon remains an injury doubt after coming off at half-time in last week’s cup tie with Wycombe while Slade will no doubt shuffle the pack once again after showing his anger at Saturday’s defeat against Oldham.

Wimbledon skipper Barry Fuller damaged a shoulder against Charlton Athletic on Saturday while striker Tom Elliott misses the match through suspension.

Centre-back Darius Charles and midfielder Dean Parrett return to the Dons squad.
