THE LAST TIME
This is the 56th game between the two sides. City have won 22 of those matches and drawn 11 scoring 90 goals compared to Millwall's 86.
The corresponding fixture last season produced a 3-1 defeat for the Sky Blues with Carl Baker sent off.
Aron Gunnarsson scored for City to cancel out a Martin Cranie own goal but with City down to ten men, Liam Trotter and Steve Morrison netted to give the Lions a 3-1 win.
The teams that day were:
City:Turner, Keogh, Cranie, Wood (McPake 74), Cameron, Bell ( Baker 57, sent off 71), Clingan, Carsley, Gunnarsson (Eastwood 62), McSheffrey, Platt SNU Westwood, Clarke, O'Donovan.
Millwall: Forde, Dunne, Robinson, Trotter, Schofield (Carter 81), Henry (Hackett 38), Barron, Ward, Harris (Lisbie 86), Morison, Abdou SNU Mildenhall, Smith, McKandawrie
The referee currently appointed to take charge of Coventry City's next game, the trip to Millwall, will be David Phillips from West Sussex.
His assistants will be Adam Crysell from Essex and Graham Norwood from Luton. The fourth official will be Ryan Atkin from London.
This is Mr Phillips 12th game of the season (Third Championship fixture). He has shown 33 yellow cards and four red. In seven of those matches, a London or Southern based side side has lost only twice to a more northerly based side.
This will be his first ever Coventry City game as a referee after joining the list in 2007/2008.
The safer betting option for Coventry City's Championship fixture at Millwall tomorrow night looks to be on a high scoring encounter.
Millwall have managed just one clean sheet in their last eight fixtures with their last clean sheet on home soil coming way back in mid-September.
Coventry haven’t managed many shut outs themselves and none at all away from the Ricoh Arena so both teams scoring looks a likely outcome.
The last three head to heads have seen three or more goals scored and so odds of 10/9 with 188Bet on that trend continuing looks a solid bet.
The Sky Blues are on the road again in midweek hoping for a positive result at Millwall in an attempt to follow up the hard fought 1-1 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Unsurprisingly the hosts go into the match as 4/5 favourites with Boylesports and Stan James after going five games unbeaten, a run of results which includes wins over Portsmouth and Leicester in their last two outings.
But Andy Thorn’s side can take solace in their rock solid record against the Lions in recent years, with the 2-1 win back in April (a best price 16/1 this time around) making it just one defeat in six matches against Tuesday’s opponents and you can get betting odds of 9/2 on a City win in this fixture.
