Our prediction for this Championship match:
Coventry Building Society Arena will host Wednesday’s Championship game between Coventry and Blackburn, the two mid-table sides. Coventry aim to build on a 3-1 win over Queens Park Rangers, but this will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Ellis Simms, who scored a brace at the weekend, while all Kasey Palmer, Milan van Ewijk, Ben Sheaf, Fabio Tavares, and Callum O’Hare remain in the recovery room.
The Riversiders, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Leicester City, but given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. All Ryan Hedges, Sam Gallagher, and Niall Ennis are out of contention through injuries, but there are no suspended players in the visiting team.
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.
