, KO: 12:30 Nov 20, 2021, Bramall Lane
Coventry City

In contrast to Sheffield United’s from this season, Coventry City are pushing for a playoff finish. They are currently fourth on the table and hold a four-point lead over Blackburn Rovers, who are just outside the playoff places.

Coventry City travel to Sheffield United with two wins from their last three Championship matches. They claimed a 3-2 victory over Bristol City in their previous fixture with Matt Godden netting a second half brace.

Mark Robbins’ men have also done well on their travels this season and claimed a 1-0 victory over Hull City in their previous away fixture with Godden once again the difference with an early goal.
