Our prediction for this Championship match:
Coventry and Watford square off against each other at Coventry Building Society Arena in what is expected to be a close Championship game. The Sky Blues are eager to move closer to the playoffs berth, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Monday’s encounter. All Callum O’Hare, Fabio Tavares, Kasey Palmer, and Liam Kelly remain in the recovery room, with Matt Godden pushing for a recall to the starting XI.
The Hornets, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Luton Town and Huddersfield Town. Considering that Watford are desperate to keep their playoffs hopes alive, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. First-choice goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann serves a one-game ban, with Ben Hamer likely to step up. Watford’s injury list remains unchanged, with all Tom Cleverley, Edo Kayembe, Kortney Hause, Tom Dele-Bashiru, Dan Gosling, and Francisco Sierralta continuing to miss out.
Highlighted Player (Simon Moore):
Simon Moore is an English goalkeeper who plays for Sheffield United in the Championship. Moore began his career at Brading Town and, after playing 49 games in the league for the club, he moved to Farnborough in 2008. However, due to the lack of first-team football, Simon Moore left the club at the end of the season, with the 191-cm-tall shoot-stopper signing a contract with Brentford.
The English goalkeeper, who was born in Sandown on May 19, 1990, made his debut for the Bees in May, 2010 against Hartlepool United, coming as a substitute for first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. After ending his loan spell with Basingstoke Town in January 2011, he moved to Cardiff City and it has to be noted that he made 17 appearances for the Welsh outfit.
In the summer of 2016 he signed a deal with Sheffield United for a fee of around £500,000 and he did remarkably well to keep 17 clean sheets in the 2016/2017 League One campaign. The Blades finished the season in top position in the standings and, no doubt, Simon Moore’s brilliant saves helped the club secure promotion to the English second tier.
