Win probability

  • HOME: 4/7 (1.57) – 63.6%
  • DRAW: 3/1 (4.0) – 25%
  • AWAY: 9/2 (5.5) – 18.2%

The Coventry vs Sheffield Wednesday odds back up our prediction that Coventry will come out on top on Tuesday night. A draw on the night at 3/1 isn't bad value, though, considering the tie can be won in extra time or via penalties.

If you suspect that this one is going to be a rout then you should consider the handicap market. Coventry City -1 is priced at 6/4 (2.5) – an implied probability of 40%. Given it's a replay, you may also want to think about playing it safe and using the ‘to qualify‘ market. Coventry City are priced at 2/7 (1.29) – an implied probability of 77.8% to come through the tie one way or the other.

Coventry City vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction

Coventry vs Sheffield Wednesday team news

Coventry

Coventry City will be without Liam Kitching after the centre back was sent off against Norwich at the weekend. They will also be missing Ben Sheaf who is expected to be out until March with a hamstring injury. Mark Robins could also make a couple of changes to his starting eleven given this is a cup tie with experienced forward, Matt Godden, likely to start the match after being a substitute on Saturday.

Predicted Lineup: Wilson (GK), Eccles, Thomas, Latibeaudiere, Dasilva, Sakamoto, Torp, Allen, Wright, Palmer, Godden

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the Championship so manager, Danny Rohl, had no choice but to field a strong eleven at the weekend. After their 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Huddersfield, he could make some changes with Owls' fans eager to see if Marvin Johnson will return amid speculation he is refusing to play for the club after failing to get a transfer in January.

Predicted Lineup: Charles (GK), Valentine, Bernard, Famewo, Johnson, Bannan, Palmer, Musaba, Smith, Gassama, Ugbo

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch – Callum O'Hare

Callum O'Hare has been a key reason for Coventry's rise up the Championship table in recent months with the attacking midfielder scoring plenty of crucial goals for the Sky Blues. Assuming he starts on Tuesday night, he will be a real handful for Sheffield Wednesday and will be difficult to stop.
