Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 4-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday, Millwall will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Coventry City on Matchday 17. The Lions produced their best performance of the season at Hillsborough, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence and they are surely capable of matching the Sky Blues on home soil. The likes of Joe Bryan, Duncan Watmore, and Matija Sarkic remain in the recovery room, but boss Adam Barrett is unlikely to make changes to the team that outclassed the Owls.
Coventry, on the other hand, do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team losing four of their last five league matches and given their difficulties in front of goal, home win should definitely be considered. Both Kasey Palmer and Fabio Tavares are out of contention with injuries for the away team.
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.
