Mark Robins’ side are in good form, winning five of their last six in league and cup, with last weekend’s home win over leaders Leicester taking the hosts into play-off territory.

For Wednesday, we are out to resume the impressive form of six wins from nine prior to the defeat at promotion-chasing Southampton.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: New recruits James Beadle and Iké Ugbo are pressing for maiden outings, while George Byers is available having served a three-match suspension.

Coventry: Coventry have reported no fresh concerns but leading scorer Haji Wright, who sustained an abductor injury on New Year’s Day against Middlesbrough, is set to remain sidelined.
