Coventry City striker Matty Godden is set to make a return to Mark Robins’s squad for the final match of the season against Stoke.

The Sky Blues front man has sat out the last six Championship games with a calf strain suffered in the 2-2 draw with Blackburn Rovers at the CBS Arena last month.

But the 30-year-old, who has an impressive 12 goals from 24 games amid another season dogged by setbacks, including appendicitis, has been given the green light to return to the matchday squad at the Bet365 Stadium.

The game kicks off at 12.30pm, in line with all the final matches of the Championship season, with a carnival atmosphere expected from the sellout travelling fans, many of whom will be in fancy dress.

Providing an injury update, Robins said: “Matty Godden will be available. He’s trained, albeit only one day but he will be available from the bench, I would imagine. But as always, we have to look to see who comes in and make sure everyone is in good health and then finish off the preparation.”

Skipper Liam Kelly also comes back into contention after sitting out last week due to isolating after testing positive for covid. Other than that City have a relatively clean bill of health other than longer term casualties Fankaty Dabo (hamstring) and Ben Sheaf (ankle).
