Maatsen starts: The predicted Coventry City XI to face Millwall on Wednesday

Published

on

Coventry City will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Championship tomorrow when they face Millwall.

The Sky Blues will be raring to go at the Coventry Building Society Arena after their clashes with Stoke City and Cardiff City earlier this month were postponed.

Due to their inactivity, Coventry have fallen out of the play-off places in the second-tier as they have been overtaken by the likes of Nottingham Forest, Huddersfield Town and Middlesbrough.

Having witnessed his side pick up a point in their recent meeting with the Terriers, it will be intriguing to see whether Sky Blues boss Mark Robins decides to make any changes to his starting eleven on Wednesday.

Here, we have decided to take a look at how Coventry could line up against Millwall…

Having utilised the 3-4-2-1 formation against Huddersfield, Robins is likely to stick with this particular set-up tomorrow.

Goalkeeper Simon Moore will be aiming to claim his eighth clean-sheet of the season against Millwall.

Michael Rose, Kyle McFadzean and Dominic Hyam will be tasked with providing some cover for Moore in their centre-back roles.

Whilst Todd Kane is expected to start at right wing-back, Ian Maatsen may be drafted in as a replacement for Fankaty Dabo on Wednesday.

Dabo filled in at left wing-back during the club’s clash with Huddersfield but is more suited to playing on the right for Coventry.

Maatsen may feel as if he has a point to prove to Robins after recently losing his place in the side.

Currently averaging a respectable WhoScored match rating of 6.64 in the Championship, the 19-year-old has already illustrated this season that he is capable of delivering the goods at this level and thus it wouldn’t be at all surprising if he produces a positive performance tomorrow.

Gustavo Hamer could be in line to make his return to action in this fixture after overcoming a foot injury whilst Ben Sheaf is likely to feature alongside the Brazilian in central-midfield.

Jamie Allen and Callum O’Hare will start in the attacking midfield roles for Coventry behind striker Matt Godden who has scored eight goals in 15 league appearances for the club during the current campaign.
