PREVIEW: Sky Blues host Ipswich Town in Championship action

City host the Tractor Boys in penultimate fixture...

29 April 2024

Coventry City return to Sky Bet Championship action on Tuesday evening as they take on Ipswich Town in their penultimate fixture of the season.

Meet the Tractor Boys:

Ipswich Town head into their final two fixtures of the season, knowing that four points from their last six would be enough to secure their promotion back to the Premier League.

Ipswich were relegated in 2002 from the top-flight, spending the last 22 years in the EFL, dropping into League One in 2019, before finally bouncing back last season.


The Tractor Boys are looking to become the first side since Southampton in 2012 to produce back-to-back promotions from League One to the Premier League.

Recently named Manager of the Year, Kieran McKenna is the man leading Ipswich, with former City striker Conor Chaplin level with Nathan Broadhead on 13 goals for top scorer at Portman Road.


Sky Blues' last six:

  • Blackburn Rovers 0-0 Sky Blues
  • Sky Blues 2-3 Hull City
  • Sky Blues 3-3(P) Manchester United
  • Birmingham City 3-0 Sky Blues
  • Southampton 2-1 Sky Blues
  • Sky Blues 2-1 Leeds United

Ipswich Town's last six:

  • Hull City 3-3 Ipswich Town
  • Ipswich Town 1-1 Middlesbrough
  • Ipswich Town 0-0 Watford
  • Norwich City 1-0 Ipswich Town
  • Ipswich Town 3-2 Southampton
