Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Adams Park when newcomers Wycombe and Coventry face each other in the Championship round 18. Both sides are fighting hard to survive in the English second tier, and, no doubt, there will be fireworks in Saturday’s showdown. The Chairboys aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Barnsley, with the team eyeing their second home win of the season, while the Sky Blues are eager to extend their unbeaten run in the league to seven games.
There have been under 2.5 goals in four of Coventry’s last five league fixtures, and seeing that Wycombe have been struggling in front of goal in the first half of the season, a low-scoring affair is on the cards at Adams Park. The likes of Charles, Ikpeazu, and Tafazolli are all likely to miss the game through injury for the hosts, while Godden, Jones, and Marosi are unlikely to feature for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Allsop):
Born in Birmingham, England on June 17, 1992, Ryan Allsop is a professional footballer who started his youth career at West Bromwich Albion. Speaking of his senior career, the 191-cm tall goalkeeper played for the likes of Hottur, Leyton Orient, Bournemouth, Coventry City, Portsmouth, Blackpool and Lincoln City before signing a permanent deal with Wycombe Wanderers.
The goalkeeper, who spent the 2015/2016 season on loan at Wycombe, returned to the club after he was released by the Cherries. Ryan Allsop has 5 caps with the England U17 team, but he has yet to make his debut with the senior team.
His preferred foot is right and he has a contract with Wycombe which should expire on June 30, 2021. The English shot-stopper did well to keep 10 clean sheets in 38 appearances for the Wanderers in the 2018/2019 League One season.
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.
