The Championship continues this week and will see Coventry City host Luton Town at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Tuesday night.

Coventry City have had mixed results of late with four wins, four losses and two draws in their last 10 league games. They were beaten 3-1 by Swansea City in their last game and had goalscoring opportunities to pick up a better result but failed to convert them.

The home team sit 11th in the Championship standings with 51 points from 34 games. They will now be looking to return to winning ways when they play later this week.

Luton Town put out an impressive performance against Premier League powerhouse Chelsea in the FA Cup last week but were knocked out after losing 3-2.

They suffered the same fate in their league clash at the weekend, losing 2-1 to Middlesbrough despite creating the bulk of the chances.

The Hatters sit eighth in the league table with 54 points from 34 games. They will now be looking to shake off their recent results and pick up the win when they travel to Coventry on Tuesday.
