Match preview

Two sides in the midst of altogether contrasting Championship seasons are set to go head to head at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Wednesday, October 19th.

Recent form, though, suggests that a shock could well be on the cards this time round.

This comes with a Coventry City outfit finally getting things on track ready to play host to a Sheffield United struggling for form.

Starting with Wednesday’s hosts, the Sky Blues, of course, are currently glued to the foot of England’s 2nd tier.

Recent weeks, however, have seen Mark Robins’ men begin to build momentum, now just four points off safety, whilst, crucially, in possession of a full three games in hand over the majority of the clubs above them.

This past weekend, Coventry clinched a 2nd victory of the campaign, thanking a solitary Viktor Gyokeres effort for a hard-fought downing of Cardiff City.

This means that, since early September, Robins and co. have slipped to defeat just once, across six outings.

Their upcoming opponents, on the other hand, whilst sitting at the very other end of the table, have found positive results altogether more difficult to come by of late.

Heading into the international break, Sheffield United stood as the Championship’s most in-form side.

The Blades were fresh off six wins from seven, sitting pretty atop the table, and looking one of the early favourites for promotion back to the top-flight.

The weeks since, however, have seen Paul Heckingbottom’s men slip into a concerning dip in form.

United have not managed a single victory across the club’s last four outings, knocked off their perch at the top of the table as a result.

The Blades’ latest outing, this past weekend, almost perfectly summed up the current state of affairs at Bramall Lane, as a chaotic meeting with Blackpool, featuring six goals and four red cards, required a 98th-minute Oliver Norwood equaliser for the day’s hosts to even emerge with a point.

Though Sheffield United, upon initial inspection of the table, should of course be considered as favourites to get the better of Coventry on Wednesday, the two sides’ respective trajectories of late therefore mean that the latter ultimately emerging with a share of the spoils could be worth a punt.
