Coventry City will be hoping they can build on some impressive recent showings when they return to action on Wednesday evening.
The Sky Blues beat Wycombe Wanderers 2-1 in their last match, which means that Mark Robins’ side are now unbeaten in their last seven matches in the Championship.
They’re now sat 18th in the second-tier standings, and will be quietly confident that they can make it eight matches unbeaten when they take on Huddersfield Town in midweek.
The Terriers were thrashed 5-0 by promotion-chasing AFC Bournemouth, and will be eager to get back to winning ways at the earliest of opportunities heading towards the New Year.
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit David Prutton issued his thoughts ahead of the game, and predicted that the Sky Blues will run out 2-1 winners on the night against the Terriers.
“Keep an eye on Coventry. Mark Robins’ side found points hard to come by in the first two months of the season but since the November international break, something has clicked. They’ve not lost in well over a month and have shipped just four goals in their last seven games.
“Huddersfield might have been second favourites against Bournemouth but they certainly won’t have expected to ship five goals in the manner they did at the Vitality Stadium. I think they might feel a little bruised so I’ll back the Sky Blues here.”

I’m going to have to agree with Prutton here.
Coventry City have really impressed me this season so far, and I think Mark Robins is the right manager to take them further up the Championship table.
Huddersfield haven’t been anywhere near good enough in recent weeks, and their heavy defeat to AFC Bournemouth at the weekend will be a real concern for Carlos Corberan.
I can see Coventry running out comfortable winners in this one, as they look to build a positive run of form heading towards the New Year.
