Coventry City return home on Saturday after two battling performances against top six teams yielded just one point and the probable ending of their play-off hopes for the season.

Sheffield Wednesday will travel in good spirits after a crucial result in midweek.
Luke Varney’s late winner against Watford could prove to be the key moment of Wednesday’s season, lifting them four points clear of Crystal Palace, although manager Alan Irvine is urging his side onwards.

‘It’s still very close, too close for comfort, really,’ he said, with Wednesday on 43 points.

‘I’m still going for the three more wins; until we get them I won’t relax.’

Richard Wood will line up against his former club at the Ricoh Arena.

The central defender’s decision to swap S6 for CV6 caused some raised eyebrows at the time but his decision has been more than vindicated with the Sky Blues occupying a top-half position in the league and making steady, stable progress towards a top-flight return.

The latest sign of that is the new sponsorship deal agreed with City Link and announced on Friday, the biggest in the club’s history.
