Two sides separated by one point just inside the top half of the EFL Championship standings go head-to-head as Coventry City play host to Stoke City on Tuesday.

Both sides saw their two-game winning streak come to an end last time out and will be looking to quickly return to winning ways.

Coventry City were denied their third win on the bounce on Saturday as they fell to a 2-1 loss against QPR on home turf.

Prior to that, Mark Robins’ side claimed a 1-0 win over Derby County in the FA Cup before seeing off Peterborough United 4-1 away from home.

With 37 points from 25 games, Coventry City are currently 10th in the EFL Championship table, one point and one place behind Tuesday’s victors.

Stoke City, on the other hand, fell to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Fulham when the sides met at the bet365 Stadium last time out.

Like the hosts, Michael O'Neill’s men were previously on a two-game winning streak, edging out Leyton Orient and Hull City respectively.

While Stoke City will look to return to winning ways, standing in their way is an opposing side who they have failed to defeat in each of their last three meetings.
