The EFL Championship continues this week and will see Coventry City host Hull City at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Wednesday night.

Coventry City returned to winning ways last weekend, picking up a well-deserved 4-1 win over Sheffield United. After falling behind early in the game, the Sky Blues rallied themselves to mount a brilliant comeback and were so dominant they could have doubled their goal tally.

Coventry City sit 10th in the league table with 54 points from 36 games. They are just three points away from the playoff spots and will be looking to close the gap this week.

Hull City have struggled for form lately. They played out a 0-0 draw against Birmingham City in their last game, marking it their third goalless outing in their last four league games.

The Tigers sit 20th in the Championship standings, with 38 points from 37 games. They are not in any danger of relegation at the moment but will be looking to begin picking up points to move up the table.

Coventry City vs Hull City Prediction

Coventry City's last match saw the Sky Blues display an impressive attacking showing to complete a comeback and end a three-game winless run.

Hull City, on the other hand, are winless in back-to-back games and goalless in three of their last four. They have won just one of their last nine games and could therefore see defeat on Wednesday.

Prediction: Coventry City 2-1 Hull City
