Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Fleetwood Town will be looking to put an end to their five-game winless run in the League One when they take on Coventry City on Matchday 30. Fleetwood shared the spoils with Bristol Rovers at the weekend, with the team missing several clear-cut chances to score. Even though the hosts failed to convert a penalty in the second half, the Fishermen should have picked up all three points from the match.
The Sky Blues, on the other hand, did well to beat Doncaster Rovers on the road, with Jordan Shipley scoring the only goal of the match. Coventry City are determined to secure promotion to the Championship, but away win should not be considered as Fleetwood Town produced a fine display in the draw with Bristol Rovers. A close encounter is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
