Coventry City will welcome Bristol City to St Andrew's on Monday with three points at stake in the EFL Championship.

Both sides come into this game on the back of defeats. The hosts were on the wrong end of a 3-0 defeat away to QPR. Goals from Chris Willock, Ilias Chair and a Michael Rose own goal helped the Hoops pick up a convincing victory.

Bristol City were on the wrong end of a 2-0 defeat at home to Stoke City. Steven Fletcher and Nick Powell scored in each half to help the Potters to an away win.

That defeat saw Bristol City remain in 14th spot, with 49 points garnered from 39 games to date. Coventry City are 21st and are just four points above the dropzone, having played several more games.
