Tyler Walker (Hip Injury) and Jodi Jones (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not available for Coventry boss Mark Robins.
Team News: Millwall
Thanks to a largely available group, there is only the one fitness worry for the Millwall gaffer Gary Rowett to contend with. Maikel Kieftenbeld (Knock) won’t be in action.
Our feeling is that Millwall and Coventry City should both be able to score here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. We therefore think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 1-1 draw when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
