EFL Championship | Coventry City VS Ipswich Town; Wednesday, 01 May at 03:00 GMT +8

Coventry is in a slump with only two rounds left in the second division regular season, while Ipswich Town could capitalize on the host’s dire situation to earn vital points and potentially return to the Premier League after 22 years. Despite a goalless draw at Ewood Park, Coventry’s recent poor form has shattered their dreams of entering the playoffs for the second consecutive year. The Sky Blues have suffered two heavy blows at CBS Arena, including a defeat to Man Utd in the FA Cup semifinal and a 2-3 loss to Hull. Ipswich failed to capitalize on Leeds’ 0-4 demolition by Queens Park Rangers and settled for a point in an electrifying six-goal stalemate against Hull. With the same number of points as second-placed Leeds United, the midweek visit to CBS Arena presents a golden opportunity for the Tractor Boys to climb back into the automatic promotion spots.

Japanese winger Tatsuhiro Sakamoto will be sidelined for the rest of the season due to a back problem, while Fabio Tavares and Luis Bink are doubtful after missing a goalless draw with Blackburn. Victor Torp is expected to return for the season’s closing games.

Man Utd loanee Brandon Williams and Saint Lucia defender Janoi Donacien will be absent for the final two regular season matches due to leg and groin injuries. Leif Davis, who was subbed off in the 82nd minute, will undergo assessment.
