Seeking to snap their six-game winless run and move into the playoff places, Coventry City welcome Luton Town to the Coventry Building Society Arena on Saturday.

The visitors will take to the pitch for the first time in almost three weeks, having seen each of their last three games postponed due to COVID-19 infections.

Coventry City failed to move into the promotion playoff places last Wednesday as they fell to a slender 1-0 defeat against Millwall.

They are now winless in each of their last six games, picking up four wins and two draws since November’s 3-2 win over Bristol City.

With 34 points from 23 games, Coventry City are currently 10th in the EFL Championship table, two points off Huddersfield Town in the final playoffs spot.

Meanwhile, after seeing their last three games postponed due to multiple COVID-19 cases, Luton Town will take to the pitch for the first time since their 1-1 draw with Fulham on 11 December.

Prior to that, Nathan Jones’ men claimed a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Blackpool to snap their run of four games without a win.

Luton Town are currently 14th on the log after claiming 29 points from their opening 22 Championship games.
