Opposition Focus: Ones to watch
Matt Godden has a remarkable goalscoring record this season, netting 10 Championship goals from just 17 league fixtures. Sadly for the Sky Blues, Godden hasn't been available since an emergency appendix operation in the middle of January 2022.
Fellow forward Viktor Gyökeres, who joined the Club from Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer of 2021, has also enjoyed a fruitful season in front of goal. Gyökeres scored the winner in our fixture in Coventry earlier this season, and has 11 league goals in 2021/22.
Former Bluebird Simon Moore is the man between the sticks at the Coventry Building Society Arena. After five years at Sheffield United, Moore joined Coventry City in 2021. He has made 27 starts in the Championship this season for the Sky Blues, and was even linked with a Premier League move away this past January. Coventry have two former Cardiff City men in their goalkeeping ranks, with Ben Wilson their number two.
23-year-old Callum O'Hare has 31 competitive appearances this term. He may have only scored one goal, but Coventry's No.10 is a creative attacking threat and plays a crucial part in Robins' side.
Steve Morison spoke with the press on Monday morning, discussing our fixture with the Sky Blues.
"They are really fluid in what they do, and they've got some really good players. They are very good at set-plays, so it's going to be a really tough game.
"We're going to need everybody, from the fans to the players on the pitch, to get right behind us. The players will carry out the game plan that we've put in place, so let's hope it works.
"We just want to keep playing games - that's what we're all here for. The net game is a tough one, but I'm pleased it's at home. We've got more players and more depth, and we'll see how everyone does, and where everyone is physically."
