Dreaming of a return to the Premier League for the first time since the 2000-01 campaign, Coventry have enjoyed an impressive season to date, winning nine, drawing four and losing five of their 18 matches to collect 31 points, which has left them in fifth position in the table.
Mark Robins‘s side will enter Tuesday’s contest off the back of a goalless draw at Sheffield United on Saturday, which followed a 3-2 win over Bristol City before the international break.
Coventry have two huge games after this one against Bournemouth and West Brom, and it will be fascinating to see whether they can stay in the playoff positions heading into the festive period.
The Sky Blues have been rightly praised this season, but it is still only November, and there are only five points separating them from 10th-placed Blackpool, which is an indication of how quickly things could change.
Coventry have not actually beaten Birmingham in any competition since August 2012, but both league games between the two teams last season finished level.
Coventry will again be without the services of Jake Clarke-Salter on Tuesday night due to a heel problem, but the home side did not pick up any fresh issues at the weekend.
As a result, it would not be a surprise to see head coach Robins name the same side that took to the field for the first whistle against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
Viktor Gyokeres has been in excellent form for the Sky Blues this term, netting nine Championship goals, and the 23-year-old will again operate at the tip of the attack.
As for Birmingham, George Friend, Jordan Graham, Maxime Colin, Kristian Pedersen and Adan George remain on the sidelines through injury, while Gary Gardner is suspended following his red card against Hull.
Gardner’s absence will open the door for Chuks Aneke to feature in an advanced area, while Scott Hogan and Troy Deeney should both retain their spots in the side.

Lukas Jutkiewicz is pushing to be involved from the start, but the 32-year-old could again ultimately be used off the bench by head coach Bowyer.
