Sheffield United vs Coventry: Team News, Line-Ups, & Form Preview

Sheffield United:

Sheffield United remain in the hunt for the top spot after the run of three consecutive league victories. After a period of struggle, Billy Sharp is back among the goals and the forward has now scored in back-to-back games for the Blades. He is expected to be a key player in the upcoming match. United, though, will continue to remain without Jack O'Connell, Daniel Jebbison, Rhian Brewster, John Fleck, and Rhys Norrington-Davies for this game. Jack Robinson is also unavailable for the match.

Predicted Line-Up: Foderingham, Clark, Egan, Ahmedhodzic, Stevens, Berge, Norwood, Baldock, Ndiaye, McAtee, Sharp

Coventry:

Coventry have every reason to be delighted with the recent win over West Brom which is likely to give the team a ton of confidence. The Sky Blues might go for the same starting lineup for the upcoming match. There are no new injury worries for Coventry, who have Kyle McFadzean, Matt Godden, and Tyler Walker on the sidelines. The form of Viktor Gyokeres continues to be the big positive for the team as they go in search of promotion next season. Coventry are just a point outside the top six coming into the game.

Predicted Line-Up: Wilson, Doyle, Rose, Panzo, Bidwell, Hamer, Sheaf, Dabo, Allen, O'Hare, Gyökeres

Player to Watch: Viktor Gyökeres

Viktor Gyokeres has been the star player for Coventry so far this season. The injury time penalty from the forward helped to secure three points against West Brom. He is the league’s top scorer with 11 goals – two more than Blackpool’s Jerry Yates. Meanwhile, Gyokeres has helped open the scoring through seven out of his 11 goals so far this season.

Starting Line-Ups:

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.
