Our prediction for this Championship match:
Select Car Leasing Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Reading and Coventry City, the two teams who are level on points in the Championship table. The Royals desperately needed a win against Hull City before the World Cup break, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their four-match winless run. All Tom McIntyre, Naby Sarr, and Scott Dann are out of contention with injuries for the home side, while all Mamadou Loum, Junior Hoilett, and Baba Rahman are back from international duty.
The Sky Blues, on the other hand, are eyeing their fifth consecutive league win, but beating Reading on the road is easier said than done. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Select Car Leasing Stadium, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. The visitors will be without Fankaty Dabo, Martyn Waghorn, and Matt Godden in Saturday’s encounter.
Highlighted Player (Andy Yiadom):
Andy Yiadom was born in Holloway, London, but he began his career in the youth team of Watford. After spending two years at the Watford football academy, the pacey full-back (winger) joined Hayes & Yeading United and he scored only one goal in 36 appearances in the league for the club.
At the end of the 2010/2011 campaign Yiadom moved to Braintree Town and after scoring seven goals in 27 appearances for the Iron he signed a contract with Barnet. The 180-cm-tall footballer played for Barnet from 2012 to 2016 and he scored 14 goals in 169 appearances for the Bees. Andy Yiadom then decided to take a step forward in his career as he moved to Championship side Barnsley.
The English footballer played 32 games in the league for the Tykes last season and he provided three assists for his teammates, while receiving four yellow cards. His main position is full-back (right-back), but he is capable of playing on the left flank as well.
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.
