Michael O’Neill¬†and his Stoke squad would have naturally had high hopes of promotion this season, and it appeared a possibility at one stage as the Potters lingered around the playoffs.

However, one win in 12 matches soon after the turn of the year ultimately ended their ambitions, and there will be those that are surprised that O’Neill has not been replaced in the dugout.

To the Northern Irishman’s credit, he has recently delivered 15 points from a possible 24, a run which has featured five victories, but it remains to be seen whether that will be enough to keep him in a job.

Not only do Stoke sit all the way down in 13th position, heading into the final day of the campaign 11 points adrift of sixth-placed Luton Town is the damning statistic.

Losing eight home games this season has played a damaging part in Stoke’s season, but they have least prevailed in three of their last four outings at the bet365 Stadium.

In Coventry’s defence, they have endured a testing run-in, although expectations were inevitably heightened when they defeated Fulham as recently as April 10.

When Robins evaluates 2021-22, pride and encouragement will be the overriding emotion, but there will be a nagging feeling that Coventry could have been travelling to Staffordshire with promotion still a possibility.

While O’Neill is not in a position where he can name an experimental Stoke XI, changes will be made on the back of last week’s defeat at the Riverside Stadium.

Although the backline could stay the same, Nick Powell should be restored to an attacking-midfield role with Steven Fletcher coming back into the attack.

Ben Wilmot and Josh Maja may be considered for selection if they are available to overcome the injury issues which kept them out last weekend.

Robins may take the opportunity to freshen up his Coventry side with Fabio Tavares potentially being handed his first Championship start of the season.
