Coventry to win and both teams to score

Maidstone will look to continue their incredible FA Cup run and book their place in the quarter-finals of the competition when they take on Coventry at the CBS Arena on Monday evening.

The National League South side have already beaten Championship opposition in Ipswich in the FA Cup this season and they will be confident that they can push the Sky Blues all the way.

Team news

After a humbling 3-0 defeat to Preston at the weekend, Coventry boss Mark Robins may make changes to his starting XI in order to get a response from his side.

Jake Bidwell, Victor Torp, Liam Kelly, Kasey Palmer, and Matt Godden are all pushing for recalls.

Goalkeeper Brad Collins may also return to the fold, having not featured for the Championship side since February 14.

Robins will be without Tatsuhiro Sakamoto after he suffered an injury against Preston and he will join Ben Sheaf and Jamie Allen in the treatment room.

Maidstone defender Harry Kyprianou missed the recent 2-0 defeat to Aveley and, if he cannot prove his fitness, Reece Greenidge is expected to replace him at the back.

The stats

Coventry's 3-0 defeat to Preston was their first in four matches, with Robins' side now dreaming of a top-six finish in the Championship.

That defeat was their first on home turf since October, but they have been sloppy at the back in front of their own supporters.

Robins' side have conceded in seven straight games at home, but they still managed to win four of those matches in all competitions.

Like Coventry, Maidstone are on the fringe of the play-offs, but they are without a win in two in National League South.

Away from home they have only won one of their last eight in all competitions, but that did come in the FA Cup against Ipswich at Portman Road.


Maidstone's success in the FA Cup this season has been the story of the competition so far, but their journey should end in round five.

Coventry are vulnerable at the back as their record suggests, but Maidstone's recent performances on the road have not been good enough.

The Sky Blues' defeat to Preston should act as a wake-up call for the second-tier outfit and they should come out on top in an entertaining encounter.
