Coventry finished 16th in the Championship last season on their return to this level of football, and it would be fair to say that they were not particularly mentioned as possible promotion candidates this term.
However, a fine start to the 2021-22 campaign has seen the Sky Blues collect 27 points from their opening 15 matches to sit fourth in the table, one point behind third-placed West Bromwich Albion.
Only Fulham (10) and Bournemouth (11) have won more Championship matches than Coventry (eight) this season, and the hosts will enter this game off the back of a 1-0 success at Hull City, with Matt Godden‘s first-half effort proving to be the difference between the two sides.
Coventry have not been present in the Premier League since 2001; it would be some story if they managed to negotiate their way to a playoff spot, and the early indications are that Mark Robins‘s side could compete this term.
The Sky Blues have not beaten Swansea in any competition since 1981, though, and suffered a 1-0 defeat when the two teams last locked horns in Wales back in February.
Coventry’s squad is in excellent shape at the moment, and having reported no injury concerns from the clash with Hull, it would not be a surprise to see the same XI sent onto the field.
Head coach Robins does have plenty of options for change, and Jamie Allen is in contention to start but could ultimately just miss out on a position in the starting side.
Tyler Walker replaced Viktor Gyokeres off the bench in the latter stages of Saturday’s clash with Hull, but the latter should keep his spot alongside Godden in the final third.
Swansea, meanwhile, can also call upon a fully-fit squad for this match, with midfielder Flynn Downes fit again after a recent issue, so Martin has a number of decisions to make.

The head coach will need to assess his players over the next 24 hours before making a decision on a starting side for Tuesday, but it would not be a shock to see the same XI feature from Saturday.
Indeed, Olivier Ntcham and Jamie Paterson should again support Joel Piroe at centre-forward, meaning that Michael Obafemi might have to accept a spot on the bench once again.
Coventry City possible starting lineup:
Moore; Clarke-Salter, McFadzean, Hyam; Dabo, Hamer, Sheaf, Maatsen; O’Hare; Gooden, Gyokeres
Swansea City possible starting lineup:
Hamer; Bennett, Naughton, Manning; Laird, Smith, Grimes, Bidwell; Ntcham, Piroe, Paterson
