Our prediction for this Championship match:
St. Andrew’s Stadium in Birmingham will host Wednesday’s football game between Coventry City and Cardiff City. The Sky Blues are determined to escape the danger zone in the Championship standings, but the game against Cardiff will be anything but a walk in the park for the newcomers. The likes of Dacosta, Godden, Jobello, and Jones are all sidelined with injury for the hosts, with Dabo and Hamer being rated doubtful.
The Bluebirds showed character in their last league match, with the team coming from behind to share the spoils with Millwall at the Den. The Welsh outfit aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Coventry City obviously miss their loyal fans, and, taking everything into account, away win should be considered. The likes of Benkovic, Vassell, Tomlin, Osei-Tutu, and Cunningham are out of contention through injury for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Wesley Jobello):
Wesley Jobello is a Martiniquais professional footballer who plays for Coventry City in the English Football League One. He was born in Gennevilliers, France, on the 23rd of January 1994.

Highlighted Team (Cardiff):
Cardiff City are a Welsh football club that compete in the English second tier (Championship). In 2009 they moved from Ninian Park to Cardiff City Stadium, the venue that officially holds 33,280 spectators.
The Bluebirds played their first ever Premier League match on 18 August, 2013, but they were beaten by West Ham United (0-2) on their debut in the English top flight. However, a week later Fraizer Campbell (two goals) and Aron Gunnarson helped Cardiff City record their first ever win in the Premier League.
The Bluebirds outplayed Manchester City back then, but they eventually dropped to the Championship at the end of the season. Fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City are considered Cardiff’s fiercest rivals and the two teams take on each other in the South Wales derby.
The colour of Cardiff City’s home kit is blue, whilst they wear red shirts and shorts when playing on the travels.
