Correct outcome prediction: Coventry City to Win

Coventry City are clear favourites for this clash and we predict the Sky Blues to progress through to the fifth round of the FA Cup. Mark Robins' Coventry side have clicked together in recent months and are reaping the rewards of a huge summer transfer window which saw Coventry lose Viktor Gyokeres and Gustavo Hamer. Coventry have lost just one of their previous fourteen matches, two wins in that run came against Sheffield Wednesday.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Coventry has failed to keep a clean sheet in all of their previous five matches while Sheffield Wednesday have failed to score in two of their previous five matches, scoring a total of nine times in those five matches. Coventry have also scored in all of their previous thirteen matches.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Coventry City

For our final prediction, we are predicting a repeat of the previous match with Coventry earning a 2-1 victory. Sheffield Wednesday, for the most part, looks a more organised side under Danny Rohl and they are harder to break down since his appointment. Coventry will win this match and will dominate proceedings but the scoreline will not be a big one in Coventry's favour.

​How far will Coventry‘s fans travel to Sheffield?

The driving distance between Coventry and Sheffield is 92 miles. With the usual cold temperatures in the UK at this time of year, we would advise any travelling fans to wrap up warm.

For those Coventry City fans making the trip to South Yorkshire, the journey will be a relatively short one coming in at just under two hours, give or take. The M69 will be used for the first part of the journey until the Sky Blues faithful reach Leicester where they will join the M1 for the rest of the journey to Sheffield. Once reaching the City of Sheffield, it's only a couple of roads, one of which being the Rotherham Gateway for roughly five miles.
