The two teams have near-identical records in the Championship after four games, only being separated in the table by two goals.
Summer signing Ivan Toney netted twice to give Brentford a 2-0 half-time lead against Preston a fortnight ago, only for the Lilywhites to score four goals after the break and shock Thomas Frank's side.
The Dane insisted that he was "100%" sure that the collapse would be a "one off", but he will not have been happy with his side's start to the campaign.
After losing the playoff final last season, promotion is once again the aim this time around, but Brentford's only league victory so far has been a 3-0 thrashing of Huddersfield Town.
Coventry are also aiming to recover from a defeat two weeks ago, as they lost 3-1 to Bournemouth. Their woes were compounded when Gustavo Hamer was sent off for violent conduct.
The Sky Blues are yet to win away from home since their return to the Championship, while only Derby County and Wycombe Wanderers have conceded more goals than Mark Robins's side (seven).
Saturday will mark the first time Brentford and Coventry have faced each other since March 2014, when the Bees won 3-1 on their way to promotion from League One.
In fact this will be only the fifth fixture involving the two sides this century, and the first in the second tier since 1952. Coventry have not beaten Brentford since 1963.

Said Benrahma's Brentford exit is imminent, with West Ham United expected to secure his signature before Friday's deadline.
Injury wise, the Bees are still without left-back Rico Henry, while Christian Norgaard was forced off with an ankle injury against Preston and subsequently missed Denmark's three games over the international break.
Gustavo Hamer will be a big miss for Coventry following his red card against Bournemouth, but it could pave the way for captain Liam Kelly to return to the starting lineup.
Brentford possible starting lineup:
Daniels; Dalsgaard, Pinnock, Jansson, Thompson; Dasilva, Jensen, Marcondes; Mbuemo, Toney, Canos
Coventry City possible starting lineup:
Marosi; Hyam, McFadzean, Ostigard; Dabo, Sheaf, Kelly, Giles; Allen, O'Hare; Godden
We say: Brentford 3-1 Coventry City
Brentford need a win to kick start their season and a home fixture against a Coventry side still finding their feet in the Championship presents them with a good opportunity. Even without Benrahma, the Bees have a menacing attack but are unlikely to keep a clean sheet.
