Coventry City manager Iain Dowie has praised recent signing Colin Hawkins and confirmed that the former Shelbourne man will keep Robert Page out of the starting line-up at Colchester on Saturday.

‘Colin is the man in possession and I don’t envisage a change at this stage because he has done well,’ said the Sky Blues supremo.

‘There are lots of little bits that I will pick out to show him and I have got some highlights that are things he can learn from, but to come from where he has at such a late stage, he should be applauded.

‘He is 29 years old and come from Irish football and, although he has been here before, it is a big step.

‘I think Colin is his harshest critic and he should be a bit easier on himself at times because he has done very well.’
