Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Oxford United will be aiming to put an end to their three-game losing run in the League One when they take on Coventry City at the Kassam Stadium on Matchday 6. The Yellows conceded eight goals in total in previous three league fixtures, meaning that coach Karl Robinson’s troops will have to improve defensively if they are to climb to the top half of the standings.
The Sky Blues, on the other hand, continue to impress in the 2019/2020 League One season, with the team recording a hard-fought 1-0 win over Gillingham in their last league match. Seeing that defender Fankaty Dabo and attacker Gervane Kastaneer return from suspension, we are positive that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match, just like they did in their last meeting at the Kassam Stadium in the English third tier.
Highlighted Player (James Henry):
James Henry was born in Reading on 10 June, 1989, but he grew up in Woodley. He began playing football at his home-town club Woodley Saints, but he made progress during his spell at Reading’s youth academy. Henry is a winger who is capable of playing as a centre midfielder as well, but he failed to score for Reading in 10 league appearances for the club.
After ending his loan spells with the likes of Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, Norwich City and Millwall, he signed a permanent deal with the Lions on 28 July, 2010. Henry signed a three-year deal with Millwall and he made his home debut in a 4-0 win over Hull City.
It has to be noted that Henry played for both Scotland and England at youth level in the past, but he has yet to make his debut for the first team. Henry was born in England, but his parents are Scottish and, as a result, he is eligible to play for both England and Scotland.
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.
