Mark Robins will be eager for his Coventry side to get back to winning ways

- Coventry have lost just one of their last 13 home games in all competitions
- Rotherham have lost their last seven Championship matches
- Recommended bet:
Coventry to win and over 3.5 goals

Coventry will be looking to boost their Championship play-off hopes when they host League One-bound Rotherham on Tuesday evening.

The Sky Blues have lost their last two league matches, going down to fellow play-off hopefuls Preston and West Brom, and they have slipped five points behind sixth-placed Hull.

Mark Robins' side need a response and they should get that at home to rock-bottom Rotherham, who are 19 points adrift of safety and may already be planning for life in League One next season.

Team news

Tatsuhiro Sakamoto is a big miss for Coventry after he picked up a season-ending back injury

Coventry's Tatsuhiro Sakamoto has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a back injury, while Jamie Allen and Ben Sheaf are not expected back until late March and mid-April respectively.

Rotherham have a lengthy injury list that includes Daniel Ayala, Cohen Bramall, Tyler Blackett, Grant Hall, Andre Green, Sean Morrison and Sebastian Revan.

Oliver Rathbone is getting closer to a return from injury, but this fixture may come too soon for his return to the matchday squad.

The stats

Coventry have suffered just two defeats at home in the Championship this season, only Leeds (0) and Ipswich (1) are ahead of them in this department.

The Sky Blues have lost just one of their last 13 games at the Coventry Building Society Arena, while over 3.5 goals has landed in three of their last five league assignments at home.

Rotherham are yet to win on the road in all competitions this season, losing 15 times and drawing four times, while their tally of four away points in the Championship is the worst of all 24 teams.

The Millers have conceded 43 times from 17 league games on their travels, with all but three of those matches seeing them concede two or more goals in each contest.


Rotherham look destined to be playing League One football next season and another nail can be hammered into their Championship coffin at the hands of Coventry.

The Sky Blues need to get back to winning ways in the league after two damaging defeats and there is no better chance to do that than against the worst side in the division.

Robins' side have been banging in the goals at home, netting two or more in eight of their last nine outings, and they can continue that solid form in front of goal against a Rotherham team that have conceded a league-high 67 times.
