Our prediction for this Championship match:
Following a 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup round 4, Coventry City will look to return to winning ways when they take on Bristol City on Matchday 29. The Sky Blues did well to beat promotion hopefuls Leicester 3-1 in their last home game and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to win the midweek clash as well. Haji Wright remains on the sidelines, but he should be the only absentee in the home team. January signing Victory Torp is widely expected to make his Championship debut after scoring in the FA Cup draw.
The Robins, on the other hand, have been involved in some low-scoring games of late. Bristol City are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Tuesday’s clash, but preventing Coventry City attackers from finding the net is easier said than done. Both Mark Sykes and Kal Naismith are injured for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Nahki Wells):
Born on June 1, 1990 in Hamilton, Bermuda, Nahki Wells is a 170-cm-tall attacker who plays for the Bermuda national team. Wells is a product of Dandy Town Hornets youth academy and he continued playing for the Bermudan side at senior level.
The experienced striker played for the likes of Bermuda Hogges, Eccleshill United and Carlisle United before joining Bradford City in 2011. After spending three seasons at Valley Parade, Nahki Wells signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Huddersfield Town in the winter of 2014. In 2017 he moved to Burnley, but he played for Queens Park Rangers as a loan footballer in the 2018/2019 season.
Speaking of his international career, Wells made his debut for the Bermuda national team in 2007. He scored his first ever goal for Bermuda in the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Trinidad and Tobago. The Burnley man will represent the Gombey Warriors at the 2019 Gold Cup.
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.
