With three wins in a row against QPR, Coventry have done a bit better recently. We only say a bit better since QPR have won the two games before that to round up the last five. On top of that, the two teams are virtually tied when it comes to their overall H2H record: 28-17-28.

Coventry preview: A solid season comes to an end

With 64 points from 45 games, Coventry have been in playoff contention until just a few weeks back, but their poor form in the last month cost them a playoff spot. Overall, Coventry are bound for a top-half finish since they're currently ninth in the standings, which is far from a bad outcome for this team.

When it comes to team news, Fabio Tavares, Luis Binks, Victor Torp, and Tatsuhiro Sakamoto are out with injuries, while Liam Kitching is suspended.

Predicted Lineup: Collins – Van Ewijk, Thomas, Latibeaudiere, Bidwell – Eccles, Kelly, Sheaf, Wright, O'Hare – Simms

QPR preview: No stress ahead of the final matchday

Thanks to their two wins in a row in the last couple of rounds, in which they beat Preston and Leeds, Queens Park Rangers have secured their place in the Championship for the next season. Overall, it's been a turbulent season for them and they were relegation candidates for the majority of the season, but at least for QPR, all's well that ends well.

Meanwhile, Michael Frey, Taylor Richards, and Rayan Kolli are on QPR's injury list at this time.

Predicted Lineup: Begovic – Dunne, Cook, Clarke-Salter, Paal – Field, Hayden – Willock, Andersen, Chair – Dykes

Player to watch: Haji Wright

With 16 goals and 5 assists in the Championship this season, Haji Wright has done well for Coventry and pushed them into a top-half finish, thought his contributions weren't enough for his team to make the playoffs.

Wright to score in the second half?

We saw Wright score 13 of his 16 league goals in the second halves of respective games, so we wouldn't be surprise to see that happen in this match too.
