Yeovil Town to make Coventry City travel arrangements for expectant father Marek Stech
Marek Stech may have to wait until the last minute to join his Yeovil Town team-mates at Coventry City as his wait to become a father continues.
The keeper’s partner Louise is yet to give birth to their first child, with the Glovers making arrangements to ensure Stech’s time away from home is kept to a minimum.
Gary Johnson will take his team to the Midlands tomorrow but Czech stopper Stech is unlikely to head north until Saturday.
The manager said: “I’m hoping that the stork only works on Thursdays and Fridays, and the baby arrives pre-weekend.

“We will leave him home until the morning of the game and if he has got a few hours to spare he will drive up and play.
“We have got it sussed when and how to bring him up and look after him and bring him back quickly afterwards as well.”
Middlesbrough midfield loanee Matt Dolan will be among the travelling party but will not play a part on the pitch at the Ricoh Arena after injuring his ankle against Brentford last Saturday.
Johnson confirmed Joe Edwards, Dolan’s replacement against the Bees and a January arrival from Bristol City, will start against Coventry.
“The lads will smile when they hear me say this, but I am pleased that Joe is in the starting XI,” he said. “I think sometimes they think he is the son of, taking the place of (Johnson’s son) Lee.
“He came on and did very well and we didn’t lose anything through the substitution. Joe’s playing well in the centre of midfield. I know he can play in a number of positions and this is his opportunity to do his bit.
“His best position is the position where I need him most. He has done well at right back, right midfield, central midfield and I am sure he could play in goal if you ask him to. The lads will smile about that as well.
“He is going to be playing in the centre of midfield and that is the position he needs to excel in because that is the position where we need him.”
