Coventry City host Queens Park Rangers in the EFL Championship at St Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium on Friday. Newly promoted Coventry City are aiming to get off the mark at home after losing their opening day encounter.

Coventry City Form

Coventry ended last season with a 14 game unbeaten run in League One, winning 12 of those matches. Their promotion campaign was built on a strong defence after conceding 30 goals.

Coventry won their first match of this season, winning 1-0 at Milton Keynes Dons in the Carabao Cup. That was followed by a 2-1 defeat at Bristol City in their first Championship match of the season.

Coventry returned to Carabao Cup action, beaten in a penalty shootout defeat at Gillingham following a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes. 

Coventry City News

Coventry City midfielder and captain Liam Kelly is a doubt  after going off injured in their last league match. 

First choice defenders Michael Rose and Fankaty Dabo should be fit to start after making a return in the Carabao Cup. 

Coventry remain without Wesley Jobello on the wing and Jodi Jones up front due to a knee injurie. Julien Dacosta is missing in defence with an ankle problem.

Queens Park Rangers Form

Queens Park Rangers ended last season in mixed form. They lost five of their first six matches after the restart, but finished mid-table thanks to an unbeaten four-match run to end the season. 

Queens Park Rangers lost their first match of this season 3-2 at Plymouth Argyle in the Carabao Cup.

In their last match QPR won 2-0 at home against Nottingham Forest in their Championship opener. Lyndon Dykes and Ilias Chair both hit the back of the net in a convincing display.

Queens Park Rangers News

Left-back Ryan Manning may be left out in the cold again with little movement on his contract situation. 

New signings Robert Dickie in defence, Luke Amos in midfield and Lyndon Dykes in attack could start the match.

Coventry use a back three with wing-backs under Mark Robins and are likely to be solidly set up to deny space to Queens Park Rangers. That formula is what got the Sky Blues promoted. It will be tough to breakdown which could lead to a low scoring encounter.
