The EFL have confirmed that Matthew Donohue will be the man in the middle this weekend against Sunderland.
Kick-off is scheduled for 3pm at the Stadium of Light, with City coming up against the Black Cats in their final fixture before Christmas Day.
Donohue last took charge of a Sky Blues fixture earlier this year in April, when City beat Reading 2-1 at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
He will be assisted by Paul Hodskinson and Robert Hyde. Simon Mather will act as fourth official.
