All you need to know ahead of our next Sky Bet Championship fixture

- Huddersfield Town vs Coventry City
- 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium
- Available to listen to on iFollow HTAFC

The Terriers will continue their Sky Bet Championship campaign on Saturday 4 March at the John Smith’s Stadium where they will take on Coventry City; 3pm kick-off.

Following a 2-0 loss at the Coventry Building Society Arena in January, Town will be looking for an improved result and performance in the return fixture at home.


This is Coventry’s third consecutive season in the Sky Bet Championship after they were promoted as champions of Sky Bet League One in the 2019/20 season.

Mark Robins was appointed manager of Coventry for the second time in March 2017 after his previous managerial spell with the Sky Blues from September 2012 until February 2013.

Since being appointed manager in 2017, Robins has led Coventry to multiple victories from the Sky Bet League Two play-off final to getting the Sky Blues promotion back to the Sky Bet Championship.

Robins is no stranger to the John Smith’s Stadium, having managed the Terriers from February 2013 until the beginning of the 2014/15 season.

The West Midlands side currently sit 11th in the league table, five points off the top six places. However, they have an opportunity to improve on that position this evening, Tuesday 28 February, as they travel to Deepdale to face Preston North End.


Viktor Gyökeres

Gyökeres is currently the top goal scorer for the Sky Blues this season, with 14 goals and four assists in his 32 league games, cementing himself as a key element of the Coventry side. The 24-year-old initially joined Coventry on loan in January 2021, but this was made permanent ahead of the following campaign. Having played in England for a number of years, the striker also has experience with teams such as Brighton & Hove Albion and Swansea City. The Swedish international has already won Player of the Month for November this season, after he scored four goals in four games.

Gustavo Hamer

Coventry City signed the midfielder from Dutch side PEC Zwolle, and he was the first signing made ahead of the 2020/21 season. The 25-year-old started his professional career with Freyenoord in 2016, before joining Dordrecht on a season-long loan where he reached the play-offs and just missed out on promotion – Hamer made 34 appearances and scored three goals for his loan club. Going on to play for PEC Zwolle from 2018 to 2020, Hamer made 48 appearances and scored four goals. Hamer has played 27 games so far this season, 25 from the start, becoming a fan favourite after his stellar 2021/22 campaign with the Sky Blues, voted the club's Player of the Year.

Kyle McFadzean

The defender has made 21 appearances this season, slotting in to the Coventry City backline with regularity. McFadzean made the move to Coventry back in 2019 following the expiry of his deal with Burton Albion. The experienced defender quickly became a leader at the back for the Sky Blues and working alongside Dom Hyam and Michael Rose, he helped City secure the Sky Bet League One title, which was the fourth promotion of his career. A natural leader for Coventry and vice-captain, he has worn the armband on several occasions for the Sky Blues this season in the absense of Liam Kelly.
