Birmingham have failed to beat Coventry in their last five H2H duels, losing three times and drawing twice. However, the situation is different if we look at their overall H2H record, with Birmingham having a small advantage—23-22-20.

Birmingham preview: Still hope for the Blues?

With six losses in their last seven games, Birmingham City have put themselves in a tough position. Right now, they are in the relegation zone and one of the main candidates to go down. However, they are also just one point behind the first team outside of the relegation zone and with four games to go, Birmingham could still salvage their season and their status as a Championship team.

Meanwhile, Oliver Burke, Lee Buchanan, Lucas Jutkiewicz, Marc Roberts, and Alfie Chang are on the sidelines with injuries at the moment.

Coventry preview: Still in pursuit of a playoff spot

After struggling in the first half of the season, Coventry have been one of the best teams in the second half. At the moment, they are just outside of the playoff zone, trailing five points behind Norwich. However, Coventry also have a game in hand, so if they can keep the points coming, we might just see them battling for promotion in the playoffs.

Matt Godden, Tatsuhiro Sakamoto, and Jamie Allen are out with injuries right now, while Milan van Ewijk is doubtful.

Predicted Lineup: Collins – Latibeaudiere, Thomas, Kitching, Bidwell – Sheaf, Eccles – Tavares, O'Hare, Wright – Simms

Player to watch: Haji Wright

With 15 goals in the Championship this season, Haji Wright is Coventry's best scorer and he's one of the main reasons why they are still in pursuit of the playoffs.

Will Haji again score in the second half?

We saw Haji score 12 of his 15 goals in the second halves of matches. As such, he might not be a bad choice as the last goalscorer in Coventry's upcoming duel with Birmingham.
