Our prediction for this Championship match:
Hull City and Coventry City face each other at MKM Stadium in the Championship round 6 curtain-raiser. The Tigers suffered a 2-1 loss to Norwich City in their season opener, but they have been producing fine displays in the English second tier ever since. Hull City defeated Leicester at King Power Stadium thanks to Liam Delap’s goal before the international break and they are surely capable of making life difficult for the Sky Blues on home soil. Midfielder Greg Docherty misses out with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Coventry City, on the other hand, have drawn each of their last three league matches. Since the Sky Blues looked sharp in front of goal in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Watford, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. The visitors will be without Jamie Allen, Fabio Tavares, and Callum OHare in Friday’s encounter.
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.
