Our prediction for this Championship match:
Middlesbrough will be aiming to climb to the top half of the table when they host Coventry City at their Riverside Stadium on Matchday 6. The Boro are undefeated in the previous six league fixtures, and it is no wonder bookies see them as favourites to win the midweek clash. The likes of Fletcher and Hall are both likely to miss the game for the hosts.
The Sky Blues, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Blackburn, meaning that they are low on confidence ahead of the trip to North Yorkshire. Coventry City sometimes do not seem to be competitive at this level, and given Middlesbrough’s fine form, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Defender Michael Rose is sidelined through suspension for the visiting team.
