Coventry City Get back to England League -1 action tonight looking to avoid a sixth straight defeat in the division when they take on high flying Sheffield United at the Ricoh Arena. Coventry City vs Sheffield United Match Details,Team News, Prediction
The Sky Blue face former player of the season John Fleck and one time start striker Leon Clarke who return to haunt their former club in the televised fixture.
United are currently third in the table and looking to re-establish themselves back in the automatic promotion spots while City are desperate to halt their free fall into the relegation zone and start clawing theirway back out.
It’s a tough task against such an in form side but City have shown in recent weeks that they can and often do perform better against the top end sides, as they did against leaders Scunthorpe and fellow promotion hopefuls Bolton Wanderers in recent weeks, albeit losing out by the narrowest of margins in the end.
With Lee Burge still nursing knock it looks as though Reice Charles-Cook will be required back in goal and that’s not necessarily a bad thing with the young keeper hungry to re-establish himself back in the side.
