PREVIEW: Sky Blues host Sheffield Wednesday on Boxing Day

The Sky Blues take on the Owls...

26 December 2023

Mark Robins and his side welcome the Owls to the Coventry Building Society Arena on Boxing Day.

Meet Sheffield Wednesday...

After two years in League One, Sheffield Wednesday returned to the Championship this season after beating Barnsley in the play-off final.

Manager Darren Moore was unable to come to terms on a new deal and the Owls came into the new season with former Watford boss Xisco Muñoz, but he would last just three months in the job.

Wednesday turned to Danny Röhl and since his appointment, form has turned round following a run of defeats, as the Owls have three wins in their last five fixtures.


Despite those wins, Wednesday find themselves firmly in the bottom three, as they look to battle to keep themselves in the Championship and beat the drop.


Sky Blues' last six:

  • Sunderland 0-3 Sky Blues
  • Leeds United 1-1 Sky Blues
  • Sky Blues 1-1 Southampton
  • Sky Blues 2-0 Birmingham City
  • Ipswich Town 2-1 Sky Blues
  • Sky Blues 1-0 Plymouth Argyle

Sheffield Wednesday's last six:

  • Sheffield Wednesday 1-2 Cardiff City
  • Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 QPR
  • Norwich City 3-1 Sheffield Wednesdsy
