PREVIEW: Sky Blues host Blackburn Rovers in Wednesday night football

City are back at the Arena for two consecutive fixtures...

3 October 2023

The Sky Blues return to the Coventry Building Society Arena on Wednesday night as they take on Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship...

Meet the Rovers:

After narrowly missing out on the play-off places on the final day of the season, Blackburn Rovers will be looking to go one further this campaign.

A mixed run of results so far this season sees Rovers come into the game with 10 points from their opening nine fixtures, sitting 18th in the Championship.


Defeat last time out against league leaders Leicester City was the third league defeat on the bounce for Rovers, with their last victory coming against Middlesbrough in September.

Top scorer Sammie Szmodics looks to be the key man for Jon Dahl Tomasson's side, with the attcker filling the void left by summer departure Ben Brereton Diaz.


Blackburn Rovers last six:

  • Blackburn Rovers 1-4 Leicester City
  • Blackburn Rovers 5-2 Cardiff City
  • Ipswich Town 4-3 Blackburn Rovers
  • Blackburn Rovers 1-3 Sunderland
  • Blackburn Rovers 2-1 Middlesbrough
  • Plymouth Argyle 3-0 Blackburn Rovers

City's last six:

  • Queens Park Rangers 1-3 Sky Blues
  • Sky Blues 1-1 Huddersfield Town
  • Cardiff City 3-2 Sky Blues
  • Hull City 1-1 Sky Blues
  • Sky Blues 3-3 Watford
  • Sky Blues 0-0 Sunderland
