Championship 2009/10: Sheffield Wednesday
Recent record: The two teams have met 12 times in the Championship since the Sky Blues' relegation, City winning 5 including a double last season, Wednesday winning 4 and the honours being even on 3 occasions.
Former Sky Blues: No current former City players are currently on the books in S6 although Owls defender Richard Wood continues to be linked with a move in the other direction.
Summer talking point: That rarest of things at Hillsborough in recent summers, optimism, after the breath of fresh air provided by a new chairman and the fact that Brian Laws has some room for action in the transfer market.
Coming to Coventry: In late March.
