Mark Robins’ Coventry City entertain Paul Heckingbottom’s Sheffield United in an intriguing EFL Championship fixture at the Coventry Building Society Arena this Saturday.

Who will come out on top in the West Midlands? Take a look at the latest odds and best tips in our betting preview.

Coventry City Preview – Can the Sky Blues get their promotion bid back on track?

Coventry City started the season like a house on fire and were flirting with the top two spots in the early weeks of the campaign. Naturally, Mark Robins’ boys have gone off the boil of late, but City are still within a shout of reaching the play-offs.

The Sky Blues head into this one having taken just one point from their last three games. After a 1-1 home draw with Preston North End, Coventry have crashed to defeats to Swansea City and Luton Town. They now find themselves six points behind sixth in 11th.

Our betting prediction:
Sheffield United to win 2-1

(odds taken 1204 GMT, Friday 11 March)

Coventry will be desperate to rekindle their promotion bid, starting with three points against a direct rival on Saturday. However, they are the second favourites in this one at 7/4.

Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades pick up another precious three points?

Sheffield United are one of the form teams in the Championship right now. Paul Heckingbottom had done an exceptional job since retaking the reigns at Bramall Lane, turning the Blades into genuine automatic promotion candidates.

Under their new manager, Sheffield United have won a staggering ten of 16 league fixtures. After taking one point from two matches, the Steel City club bounced back with a stunning 4-1 home success over Chris Wilder’s Middlesbrough in midweek.
