Game week two of the Championship season and the teams have had a few days to digest the first match. Here's the Coventry City - Queens Park Rangers preview:

There haven't been much time to rest for the hosts, as they played a Carabao Cup match only three days ago. That game was an away game at Gillingham, so at least Coventry are thankful to return home in this one. Game on!
