Coventry City host Queens Park Rangers in the EFL Championship matchday 28 on Saturday.

The Sky Blues ended their six-game winless run in the league with a 4-1 drubbing of Peterborough in their last outing.

Mark Robins' side will be eager to build on that, although QPR are themselves coming off the back of a three-game winning run.

They're currently fourth in the league table with 44 points from 25 games, having played two fewer than third-placed Blackburn Rovers.

Another victory at the weekend could see them go 10 points clear of Coventry, who are in ninth place in the table.

Should he start at left wing-back position, Jordan Shipley will be relegated to the bench although he deputized superbly for the injured Ian Maatsen.
