Coventry City and Sheffield United host the EFL Championship Round of 16 at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Wednesday (October 19).
The Blades will be looking to snap a four-game winless run and return to the top of the table. Coventry won their home game against Cardiff City on Saturday. Before that, they had 2 goalless matches with 1 draw and 1 loss. Coventry is bottom of the table with 10 points from 11 games, four points behind Hull City.
Meanwhile, Sheffield United’s recent struggles have continued, with their last match ending in a 3-3 draw against Blackpool. Since beating Preston North End 2-0 in September, they have gone winless in their last four games, losing twice and drawing twice. Despite their recent struggles, Sheffield United is second in the table, level with Burnley at the top.
Given previous results between Coventry and Sheffield Wednesday, a final tie could take place on Wednesday. Two teams can take on each other and split the loot.
