Viktor Gyokeres scored his fourth goal of the season as Coventry beat Cardiff City 1-0 on Wednesday night; it was their fifth win of the campaign, which is the joint-most in the division with leaders Fulham.
In truth, the Sky Blues could have scored more in a dominant performance but their finishing let them down – they are the joint-lowest scorers in the Championship’s top half with just eight goals.
Only one of those has been scored away from home, while both of Coventry’s defeats this season have come on the road at Barnsley and Queens Park Rangers respectively.
The West Midlands outfit do have the joint-best defence in the league though, having conceded just five times so far, and host struggling Peterborough United next weekend so will see an opportunity to build some momentum.
Mark Robins’s men won both of their games against Millwall last season, including an emphatic 6-1 victory on the final day of the campaign in May.
The Lions are yet to really get going in 2021-22 and sit 15th in the table on seven points, two above the relegation zone.
Gary Rowett’s side were the Championship’s draw specialists last season and are heading the same away again this year, with a 0-0 stalemate against Swansea City on Wednesday being their fourth draw in seven matches.

It was Millwall’s first clean sheet of the campaign, but also the first time they had failed to find the back of the net.
With just one win to their name so far, the Lions will be eager to kick start their season as they look ahead to a trip to manager-less Nottingham Forest next weekend
