While the hosts were beaten by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Boxing Day, Cardiff drew a third consecutive match since returming from the World Cup break.

Coventry have resumed the Championship campaign following the month-long break in an inconsistent manner, picking up just four points in as many matches so far in December.

Mark Robins’ side were Sheffield United’s latest victims last time out, with strikes from James McAtee, Ciaran Clark and Tommy Doyle securing all three points for the Blades before Coventry’s Viktor Gyokeres scored a consolation in Yorkshire.

Gyokeres is continuing to show that his breakthrough season in the Championship last season was no fluke, with the forward enjoying an impressive rise since being deemed surplus to requirements at Swansea City during a difficult loan spell two years ago.

Meanwhile, Cardiff have claimed three successive draws since the Championship started after the World Cup, but those results against Stoke Cty, Blackpool and Queens Park Rangers have not been enough to steer the club significantly clear of danger.

Mark Hudson’s side are clearly continuing to struggle in front of goal and have the worst attacking record in the Championshp, having scored just 20 times in 24 matches.

However, Hudson was pleased with his side keeping a clean sheet and will be keen on building on such defensive solidity against a Coventry City side with one of the division’s most potent forwards in Gyokeres.

The players at he Cardiff City Stadium are adamant that the are better than what their lowly league position suggests, with the likes of Callum O’Dowda stating “things will click” for the team, but that needs to happen relatively soon to avoid an unexpected relegation battle this season.

Coventry City Team News

Coventry playmaker Callum O’Hare was stretchered off after just seven minutes with a knee injury at Bramall Lane, meaning that he is highly unlikely to feature here.

Tyler Walker is expected to be sidelined for at least another month following a cruciate knee ligament tear in November, with the issue jeopardising any potential move away from the Midlands for the striker.

Cardiff City Team News

Rubin Colwill impressed in his first start for Cardiff in over four month after struggling with several injury issues, but Gavin Whyte should come into the XI here instead.

Neils Nkounkou could come into the side to play at left-back, although Hudson will be wary of changing too much considering his side kept a clean sheet last time out.
