THERE is no sub­sti­tute for ex­pe­ri­ence and that is cer­tainly some­thing Coven­try City man­ager Tony Mow­bray agrees with af­ter snap­ping up Joe Cole, Stephen Hunt and Peter Ra­m­age.

Mid­fielder Cole has played seven times for the Sky Blues dur­ing a loan spell from As­ton Villa this term and Mow­bray is con­vinced the 34-year-old join­ing per­ma­nently un­til the end of the sea­son will ben­e­fit the whole club.

“He’s great to have around the dress­ing room and the rest of the squad feed off his ex­pe­ri­ence,” said Mow­bray.“I only see his per­for­mances for the club get­ting bet­ter and he is a fan­tas­tic op­tion to have from now un­til the end of the sea­son.”

Re­pub­lic of Ire­land mid­fielder Hunt, 34, has ar­rived as a free agent on a short-term con­tract. Ex-QPR de­fender Ra­m­age, 32, has joined un­til the end of the cam­paign af­ter a trial fol­low­ing a spell play­ing in In­dia.

CLASS: Joe Cole
