Coventry To Win To Nil

Reason for tip

Coventry have been exceptional at home of late, avoiding defeat in their last nine matches on their patch and beating runaway Championship leaders Leicester in that run, suggesting they will be far too strong for Sheffield Wednesday, who have lost ten times in their last 12 away fixtures.

Coventry 2-0

Reason for tip

Coventry ran out 2-0 victors in this exact fixture back in December and should repeat that feat in this tie. Wednesday have failed to score in their last two away games and have netted only twice in their last five matches in total, with their struggles in front of goal set to continue against the Sky Blues on Tuesday.

Coventry vs Sheffield Wednesday Predictions

  • Prior to the original draw that led to this replay, the Sky Blues had won their last three meetings with the Owls
  • Coventry are unbeaten in nine home matches, drawing with an in-form Southampton and beating Championship leaders Leicester in that run
  • Sheffield Wednesday have lost ten of their last 12 away games, being defeated 4-0 in both of their last two road matches

Coventry can cruise into the last 16

A place in the last 16 of the FA Cup is up for grabs when Coventry host Sheffield Wednesday for their replay on Tuesday following a 1-1 draw at Hillsborough in the original tie, with the Sky Blues likely to progress this time around.

Mark Robins’ side have been formidable at home of late, avoiding defeat in their last nine matches in a run that has included a draw with a red-hot Southampton and a 3-1 victory over Championship table-toppers Leicester.

Coventry outshot the Owls 17-16 in the 1-1 draw that led to this replay and should fare even better on their own patch, with a home win looking very likely based on history and the visitor’s recent results.

Scoring struggles set to continue for Owls

Sheffield Wednesday had shown signs of improvement under Danny Rohl but have since regressed and could be in for a tough time at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

The Owls have lost ten of their last 12 away matches and their last two road games have seen them thrashed 4-0 and another goalless showing on their travels looks set to occur on Tuesday.

Championship survival is the key priority for Rohl and this FA Cup replay will be seen as unwelcome, which may lead to personnel changes for this tie and, given Wednesday failed to score on their last trip to Coventry, it seems unlikely they will find the net in this clash.

The Owls have scored just twice in their last five matches and could be defeated to nil for the third away game in a row.
