The Sky Blues currently sit just outside the play-offs in seventh place but have a game in hand on teams around them.

Tony Mowbray’s men are unbeaten so far at the Ricoh this season in their four matches, winning three.

On-loan Newcastle teenager Adam Armstrong will once again prove key for the hosts as he looks to add to his six goals, which makes him the league’s top scorer.

Newly promoted Shrewsbury have found the step-up in class hard so far, winning three on their ten games which puts them in 16th place.

The Shrews suffered a disappointing mid-week defeat at Rochdale, although they fought back from 3-0 down to lose 3-2.

That defeat was their first away from home this season, and John Louis Akpa Akpro plus Nathanial Knight-Percival will be key to getting back to winning ways.

Coventry could be without goalkeeper Lee Burge who is struggling with a fitness bug, while youngsters Jordan Willis and James Maddison remain their only long-term injury concerns.

Shrewsbury are unbeaten in their last five meetings with the hosts, in a sequence dating back to 1963.
