Sheffield Wednesday host Coventry City in the Championship tomorrow evening, and David Prutton has predicted the outcome.

Sheffield Wednesday return to Hillsborough this weekend to face top six hopefuls Coventry City.

The Owls are coming off a 4-0 defeat at Southampton, which left Danny Rohl’s team four points from safety and 22nd in the Championship table.

Meanwhile, Coventry is flying high in sixth place. It comes after a poor start to the season for Mark Robins’ team, but a 3-1 victory against Leicester City last time out means Coventry has only one defeat in their previous 12 league games.

Sheffield Wednesday defeated Coventry City 2-0 at the CBS Arena on Boxing Day.

David Prutton expects Coventry to continue their good form against Sheffield Wednesday.

Sky Sports commentator and former Owls midfielder Prutton made the following prediction for tomorrow’s Championship fixture between Sheffield Wednesday and Coventry City:

“Sheffield Wednesday were thrashed at Southampton last week, and it won’t get any easier here as in-form Coventry visit Hillsborough.” The Owls are four off safety going into the weekend.

“Coventry took advantage of Leicester’s red card to maintain their excellent record last week. It’s only one defeat in 11 already, and they’ve done exactly what they did last season – albeit slightly earlier. They’ll be sure of another victory here.

Prutton expects a 2-1 victory for Coventry City.

Another challenging outing, but Hillsborough is a fortress.
Rohl has already overseen 16 league games as Sheffield Wednesday’s manager. He has five wins in that time, three of which have come at home.

And, while Wednesday’s record at Hillsborough should be improved, home performances have been superb.

Wednesday thrashed Cardiff City 4-0 at home in the FA Cup last time out, coming off a commanding 3-1 victory over Hull City, one of the top six contenders.

In November, they held Leicester City to a 1-1 draw at home before defeating Blackburn Rovers, so Coventry City will not be anticipating an easy game away at Wednesday.

And if the Owls are to have any hope of avoiding relegation this season, they must rely heavily on home form.

Wednesday’s last game against Southampton served as a reminder of how far they still have to go in their bid for safety, and the visit of a highly in-form Coventry side makes matters even more difficult.

But if Wednesday can give Leicester City a good game at Hillsborough, they will undoubtedly give Coventry a challenging afternoon.
