HEAD TO HEAD: Coventry City v Sheffield United - Its honours even between the Sky Blues and the Blades

29 April 2016

The Sky Blues look to tip the scales in their favour as they entertain Sheffield United in the final home game of the 2015/16 season...

The Sky Blues take on the Blades in the last League One fixture of the season to be staged at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena this weekend.

There have been 58 matches in total between the two clubs, with both clubs claiming an equal 19 wins apiece.

There have been 20 draws played out, with the most recent result a 1-0 home win for Sheffield United at their Bramall Lane stadium. 

Then-second place, the Sky Blues lost ground on League One leaders Burton after Billy Sharp sealed victory for Sheffield United.

Substitute Sharp headed home a Paul Coutts corner from close range before Sam Ricketts was sent off late on.

Both sides have a 32.76% win rate, as the Sky Blues will hope that Saturday’s clash tips the record in their favour.

The highest Coventry City score win occurred in the 1991/92 season when the Sky Blues beat Saturday’s opponents by a scoreline of 3-0. The Ricoh has witnessed 11 Sky Blue wins against the Blades, while Tony Mowbray will be hoping to make it 12 against League One’s ninth placed team.
