Coventry will again check on the fitness of Freddie Sears ahead of their final game of the season at home to Watford.

The on-loan West Ham striker has missed the last two games due to an ankle problem and will be assessed ahead of Sunday`s clash at the Ricoh Arena.

Victory for the Sky Blues - who are winless in 10 - would see them better last season`s points total of 54, the tally they currently find themselves on in 16th place.

Left-back Martin Cranie recovered from a knee injury to start last weekend`s 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough and he should do so again, with Chris Coleman promising to name the strongest XI available to him.

That means long-serving defender Marcus Hall can only expect a cameo from the bench as he makes his last appearance for the club before parting ways in the summer having been told he will not be offered new terms.

Jonathan Stead (knee), Gary Deegan (ankle), James McPake (groin and knee), Ben Turner (ankle) and Isaac Osbourne (knee) all remain out.

Jay DeMerit, Will Buckley and Ross Jenkins look set to miss for Watford.

Centre-half DeMerit is struggling with a stomach injury and midfield duo Buckley and Jenkins have hamstring problems.

With the Hornets safe from relegation following last Saturday's 3-0 win over Reading, boss Malky Mackay has no need to take any risks with their fitness.

Mackay is considering adding academy duo Piero Mingoia and Gavin Massey to his squad.

Danny Graham and Heidar Helguson scored the goals which secured their survival last week and should continue their partnership in attack. Helguson is due to return to QPR after his loan spell ends but he wants to return on a permanent basis.

Arsenal's Henri Lansbury also plays the final game of his season-long loan.
