In the EFL Championship’s round 16 fixtures tonight, Coventry City and Sheffield United will face off at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
Coventry defeated Cardiff City away from home on Saturday to get back on the winning track. Prior to then, they had lost one game and drawn one during a two-game losing streak.
Coventry is stuck at the bottom of the rankings with ten points after 11 games, four points off Hull City and barely outside the relegation zone.
In their most recent game against Blackpool, Sheffield could only manage a 3-3 tie, continuing their recent troubles.
Since a 2-0 win at Preston North End in September, they have lost twice and drawn twice in their previous four games, respectively. Despite their recent problems, Burnley and Sheffield are tied for first place in the rankings with the same number of points.

Tyler Walker, a striker for Coventry, tore his ACL during the team’s loss to Burnley, but Robins has verified that the injury is not as severe as first thought; the 25-year-old will only be sidelined for the next two weeks.
Josh Eccles could be replaced in the centre of the field by Kasey Palmer, and Martyn Waghorn will be vying with Matt Godden for the starting spot in attack.
With ligament damage, Daniel Jebbison is out for a few weeks, along with John Fleck (broken leg), Sander Berge, Jack O’Connell (both knee), Max Lowe (hamstring), Ciaran Clark (muscle), and Enda Stevens (knock), who is doubtful.
The return of Anel Ahmedhodzic and Jack Robinson, who both started on the bench as substitutes last weekend, gives the Blades at least some encouragement. Both defenders will be in the hunt to play on Wednesday.
