Coventry vs Rotherham Team News

Coventry boss Mark Robins could hand a first start of the season to star man Callum O'Hare after the attacking midfielder made his long-awaited matchday squad return on Saturday afternoon.

The Sky Blues could be without midfielder Ben Sheaf and experienced forward Matt Godden on Tuesday night with the pair both doubtful, while Liam Kelly is the hosts' only confirmed absentee.

Expect Matt Taylor to revert back to a 3-4-2-1 system in midweek with Conor Washington dropping to the bench and substitute goalscorer Georgie Kelly coming in for a start.

Long-term absentees Chiedozie Ogbene and Peter Kioso will both miss the trip to the Coventry Building Society Arena on Tuesday.

Confirmed Absentees

Coventry: Liam Kelly, Matt Godden (doubtful), Ben Sheaf (doubtful)

Rotherham: Chiedozie Ogbene, Peter Kioso

Predicted Lineups

Coventry (3-5-1-1): Wilson; Panzo, McFadzean, Doyle; Dabo; Allen, Eccles, Hamer, Bidwell; O'Hare; Gyokeres

Rotherham (3-4-2-1): Johansson; Harding, Wood, Hall; Norton-Cuffy, Barlaser, Odoffin, Ferguson; Wiles, Kelly; Eaves

Coventry vs Rotherham Score Prediction

Coventry had midfield duo Jamie Allen and Gustavo Hamer to thank at the weekend as their goals helped the Sky Blues to a 2-1 win against Alex Neil's Stoke side.

Mark Robins' men have won three EFL Championship matches on the spin following a difficult and disrupted start to the campaign, and can climb as high as 17th with a win here.

Rotherham boss Matt Taylor was left disappointed on Saturday afternoon as his men were beaten 4-2 by a managerless Hull City side following a shocking second-half collapse.

The Millers had won back-to-back EFL Championship games prior to that result, but have dropped down to 12th ahead of their trip to the Midlands. The visitors have won just one of their six away league games this season.

Score Prediction: Coventry 2-1 Rotherham

Harry Smith's Tip: Anytime Goalscorer - Viktor Gyökeres
