Due to fixtures being postponed, Peterborough have not played in the Championship since December 18 but are on a run of one win in nine league games.
Darren Ferguson’s side were given some respite from their relegation battle last weekend as they won 2-1 against League Two outfit Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup.
Sixteen of Posh’s 19 points in the Championship this season (84%) have been won on home turf, the highest ratio in the division.
The Cambridgeshire side have the worst defence in the second tier in 2021-22, keeping just two clean sheets and conceding 44 goals; at the other end, only Barnsley have scored on fewer occasions.
Coventry’s 3-0 win over Peterborough in September took the Sky Blues up to second in the Championship table and they maintained a place in the top six until the start of December.
After travelling to London Road, Coventry’s following three fixtures are all against other sides fighting for a spot in the playoffs – Queens Park Rangers, Stoke City and Middlesbrough.

Now Mark Robins’s side are on a six-match winless run in the league and are six points behind the playoffs with at least one game in hand over all the sides above them.
Like Peterborough, the Midlands outfit were victorious in the FA Cup last weekend as they beat Derby County 1-0 through Dominic Hyam’s goal just before half-time.
Only Posh and Barnsley have picked up fewer points away from home in the Championship this season than the Sky Blues, who have won just once on the road since August; their last three away matches have ended in draws
