Micky Adams is hoping to sort out Coventry City's exacerbated defensive injury worries in time for Monday night's televised home clash with Colchester United.

The Sky Blues' 1-0 defeat to Wolves came at the cost of another player as Coventry's left-back curse struck for the second time in successive games.

Following Marcus Hall's knee ligament injury in Friday night's win, David McNamee was switched there, but he lasted just 11 minutes at Molineux before pulling his hamstring. And, with Andrew Whing unable to be recalled before the first month is up in his loan at Brighton, that leaves the Sky Blues without a recognised full-back.

Even before Tuesday night's game, Adams had already addressed the situation by arranging to bring in Portsmouth's Welsh international right back Richard Duffy for a third loan spell in as many seasons with the Sky Blues. And the Coventry manager is now looking for more reinforcements.

"We've got Duffy lined up to come in on loan," said Adams, "if we can complete that deal. But it looks like we are going to have to look for another one."

At least, despite seeing his side go down to their fourth defeat in six games to a hotly contested Elliott Ward own goal, Adams was satisfied with his side's overall performance. "I can't ask for any more," he said. "They gave me everything and as long as they continue to do that there won't be a problem. We threw everything at them and you can only say 'Well done' to Wolves for the way they defended.

"We played the majority of the game without a full-back on the pitch as, with the two full-backs we have at the club both injured, we were forced into adopting a wing-back system with attacking players.

"I don't know if that had any bearing on the game. We looked a little bit vulnerable at times but having said that I don't think my keeper has had too many saves to make.

"Wolves are a top four side, so we haven't got too much to worry about this season, if we take confidence from that."
