Our prediction for this Championship match:
Out-of-sorts Coventry City will look to put an end to their four-game losing run when they welcome Stoke City to their Coventry Building Society Arena on Saturday afternoon. The Sky Blues have been struggling at the back of late and given their difficulties in front of goal, home win should not be considered. All Liam Kelly, Kasey Palmer, and Fabio Tavares are out of contention with injuries for the home team.
The Potters, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Championship and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Anyhow, Stoke are closer to pick up all three points from the match than the out-of-form hosts. As for the away side, all Ben Wilmot, Tyrese Campbell, Lewis Baker, and Emre Tezgel are out of contention with injuries.
