Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic, Cardiff City will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Coventry City on Matchday 15. The Bluebirds have been showing signs of improvement of late, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to make it to the Championship playoffs. Sheyi Oyo, who scored as a substitute in the triumph over the Latics, is widely expected to replace Callum Robinson in the starting XI as the Ireland international suffered an injury at the weekend.
The Sky Blues, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only seven points in their pocket, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Bluebirds’ party at Cardiff City Stadium. Gustavo Hamer is banned for the match, while both Liam Kelly and Callum OHare remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Callum Robinson):
Born in Northampton, Callum Robinson started his career at Aston Villa. Having gone through the youth ranks with the Villans, Robinson was given his first-team debut in 2013. As a product of the Aston Villa academy, Robinson unfortunately never got a chance to prove his worth at the club and ended up playing no less than 4 league appearances during his three-year stay at Villa Park.
Various loan spells – at Preston North End on two occasions and Bristol City – brought mixed fortunes for the striker up until 2016 when he sealed a permanent move with the Lillywhites. Robinson represented England at U16, U17, U19 and U20 levels but raised plenty of eyebrows when he declared for the Republic of Ireland in March 2018 through his late grandmother who was from Monaghan.
The striker made his senior team breakthrough in Republic of Ireland’s 2-2 draw with Celtic in Scott Brown’s testimonial match and will be hoping to prove doubters wrong and prove his motive is bigger than career opportunism.
Highlighted Team (Coventry):
Nicknamed the Sky Blues, Coventry City are an English football club that compete in the League One. Coventry City, who were founded on August 13, 1883 as Singers FC, wear sky blue kit when playing on home soil, whilst their away colour is white.
Aston Villa and Leicester City are considered the club’s main rivals, but they have rivalry with fellow West Midlands clubs Wallsall and Burton Albion as well. Coventry City have yet to win the Premier League trophy, but they did well to go all the way in the FA Cup in the 1986/1987 season, with the team beat Charlton Athletic in the two-legged final. They share stadium with Birmingham City, with both clubs playing their home games at St. Andrew’s Stadium.
Built in December, 1906, St. Andrew’s Stadium can hold up to 29,409 spectators. Dion Dublin is one of the most famous Coventry City players, with the legendary centre-forward scoring 61 goals in 145 appearances for the club in the league.
