Stoke City’s boss sweating amid striker’s fitness for Coventry City trip but three definitely out…

How the visitors are shaping up ahead of Saturday’s game the CBS Arena, where the Potters will arrive in good form following recent victories over Sunderland, Leeds, Middlesbrough.

Stoke City could welcome back striker Ryan Mmaee to their squad ahead of this weekend’s trip to Coventry City but the match is too soon for two of their other stars.

The Potters arrive at the CBS Arena on the back of 10 points from a possible 12, a run that has included victories over Sunderland, Leeds, and Middlesbrough. And they could be in even better shape if Mmaee is fit.

The Moroccan international, who scored in that win over Sunderland, has missed Stoke ’s past two matches but will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s fixture.

But while Tyrese Campbell and Lewis Baker are back in training for the Potters, Coventry boss Mark Robins doesn’t need to worry about facing them. Ben Wilmot also remains out for Stoke.

“We’ve got most of our players back,” Stoke boss Alex Neil said at his press conference on Thursday. “Tye Campbell has been on the grass training, Lewis Baker has been on the grass training.

“The only one, really, who hasn’t been involved in any description is Ben Wilmot, who is more longer term. The rest of them have, albeit that some of the lads I’ve mentioned there are not quite ready but they are on the step to recovery now, which is good.

“(Ryan) is better. He has done part of the session today and we’ll take a view on him tomorrow. We’ve still got a couple of decisions to make on one or two tomorrow but if they’re not ready they are certainly not far away from being ready.”
