Our prediction for this Championship match:
Coventry City and Stoke City go head to head at Coventry Building Society Arena in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Sky Blues played out a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town in their last league match, with the team extending their winless run to five games. Coventry City are eager to climb to the playoffs berth, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
The Potters, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Middlesbrough. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the cards at Coventry Building Society Arena. In their last meeting at the venue the two teams played out a goalless draw. All Romaine Sawyers, Josef Bursik, Jordan Thompson, Harry Souttar, and Nick Powell are out of contention with injuries.
