Effect of the coherent backscattering of the conduction electrons in three-dimensional structurally disordered metals specified by the Ioffe-Regel criterion is considered within the framework of the Morgan-Howson-Šaub theory of localisation which is based on the generalised kinetic equation for the Wigner distribution function and effective medium approximation. A formula for the electrical resistivity including the weak localisation correction is expressed in terms of the dimensionless transport parameter kFl. The asymptotic form of the formula is derived and discussed in the context of the diagrammatic approach.
