What is going on at Coventry City at the moment? All the latest Sky Blues news here



Despite going winless in their last two matches, Coventry City are still in with a chance of securing a top-six finish at the end of the campaign in what has been a remarkable season for the club.

Admittedly, they would have had a much better chance of achieving this goal if they had won more than one point from a possible six against Hull City and Derby County, two games they would have expected to win.

Nonetheless, the Sky Blues aren’t expected to be play-offs in May considering the strength of other sides and this may provide them with a psychological advantage with the pressure firmly off them.

Despite needing to focus on this short-term goal, one eye will also need to be on the bigger picture with the likes of Ian Maatsen and Jake Clarke-Salter likely to return to parent club Chelsea at the end of the campaign and players needed to replace them in the summer.

They will also need to weigh up the futures of those who are currently out on loan with permanent moves away for the likes of Tyler Walker and Julien Dacosta a possibility if they are still deemed surplus to requirements.

Focusing on current events though, we have rounded up the latest news you need to know about Mark Robins’ side.

Pask set to depart

Centre-back Josh Pask will be leaving the CBS Arena on the expiration of his contract in the summer, according to Coventry Live reporter Andy Turner.

Currently out on loan at League Two outfit Newport County, it never looked as though he was going to force his way into first-team contention again even before this news emerged.

At 24, the defender needs to be playing regular first-team football and with the likes of Dom Hyam, Michael Rose and Kyle McFadzean ahead of him in the pecking order, with Robins also likely to move to replace loanee Clarke-Salter in the summer, he won’t be able to play as much as he would like.

Thankfully for Pask, his deal expires in the summer so it won’t be difficult for him to make an exit and according to Football Insider, he knew of his fate way back last summer.

Jones suffers another setback

Forward Jodi Jones has suffered another injury setback with the 24-year-old undergoing surgery on a cartilage problem, a setback that could potentially rule him out for the remainder of the campaign.

This is a major blow to the attacker who has struggled majorly with injury problems in the past few years, suffering three serious knee setbacks and although he looked set to come out of the other end of this dark tunnel this term, he has only made ten competitive appearances during 2021/22.

He may not appear for the Sky Blues again with his contract coming to an end this summer and the 24-year-old potentially out for six weeks – and perhaps that’s even an optimistic time scale considering he’s had to have an operation.

Robins’ side do have an option to extend his deal by a further 12 months – but they would probably be wise to opt against triggering this clause.

Cowley’s admission on Walker

Portsmouth boss Danny Cowley has admitted to The News that Walker’s loan spell at Fratton Park hasn’t gone according to plan so far, scoring just once in 13 league appearances and failing to make a real impact despite taking the drop down to the third tier.

Scoring just four goals in 33 displays in all competitions this term, the 25-year-old will be desperate to get in and amongst the goals more as he looks to force his way into his parent side’s plans.

With Viktor Gyokeres, Matty Godden, Martyn Waghorn and Fabio Tavares available as options though, it doesn’t look as though he will be winning many minutes on the pitch next season unless there’s an injury crisis.

There would have been more transfer interest surrounding Gyokeres if he had kept up his early-season form – but that may have cooled since then and this could put the final nail in Walker’s career at the CBS Arena.
