On Tuesday night, Coventry City will face Wigan Athletic with the goal of climbing into the top half of the Championship rankings for the first time this year.
The visitors, meanwhile, are currently in 23rd place and are in the worse shape of any team in the division after letting a two-goal lead against Swansea City over the weekend slip away.

Coventry City vs Wigan Athletic Tips and Prediction
Coventry has spent this campaign being heavily distracted or playing catch-up, whether it be due to the state of their pitch or ownership concerns surrounding their stadium, but they have managed to respond positively on each occasion.
The Sky Blues have hardly gotten out of the relegation zone given the number of games they still have to play, but Mark Robins’ team is currently in better shape thanks to a record of just two losses in their last 12 games.
Coventry has moved up to 15th place during that time thanks to six wins, the most recent of which came on the road when they defeated Watford.
Coventry kept a clean sheet at Vicarage Road, their ninth in as many games, and the groundwork has been prepared for a promotion push despite the fact that they continue to be one of the poorest attacking sides in the league.
Currently, Coventry is only eight points and three points away from the playoffs, but a win on Tuesday night will propel them higher up the standings.
Wigan will have conflicting emotions after making the difficult trip to Swansea and returning with a draw.
On the one hand, it is a point earned after five straight losses, but the Latics led after 16 minutes before giving up the equalizer with six minutes left
Leam Richardson’s club will be mindful that a loss might cause them to start falling behind in the bottom three, even though a share of the spoils maintains them up there but they will be looking to move up more.
Wigan still have the division’s sixth-best road record after losing all four of their most recent away contests.
Wigan will continue to be confident of defeating the Sky Blues given their road performance this year. However, Coventry is growing into a squad that might enter the promotion race unannounced, so we anticipate a close victory for the home team.
