Coventry v Gillingham preview

Team news for Friday's League One clash between Coventry City and Gillingham at the Ricoh Arena.

Coventry return to the Ricoh Arena on Friday after their 13-month exile in Northampton.

The club resolved their rent dispute with the stadium's owners ACL last month and a home sell-out is expected for the visit of Gillingham.

Shaun Miller (calf) is the only absentee after suffering the injury in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Swindon.

Deadline-day signings Seb Hines and Frank Nouble are in line for their debuts after joining on loan from Middlesbrough and Ipswich respectively.

Gillingham are missing Gavin Hoyte for the historic trip. The full-back is suspended for the sending off he sustained against Stevenage in midweek, which was the Gills' second straight triumph and clean sheet in a row.

Peter Taylor shuffled his pack for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash and the likes of goalkeeper Stephen Bywater, striker Danny Kedwell and defender Kortney Hause are all set to be recalled.

Both striker Cody McDonald (ankle) and midfielder Josh Pritchard (groin) are considered fully fit following their returns to action recently.

Watch Coventry v Gillingham on Friday live from the Ricoh Arena on Sky Sports 2 HD - coverage starts at 7.30pm.
