Reason for Coventry vs Birmingham Predictions
Coventry is floating just above the relegation zone coming into the weekend, sitting just a point above the bottom three. They have lost four of their last five games coming into this clash, starting with defeats to Blackburn and Middlesbrough. The hosts then picked up a shock 3-2 win over Reading. The Sky Blues have since gone on to lose 2-1 against Nottingham Forest and 3-2 to Watford away from home. Coventry was leading 2-1 with 25 minutes to go before conceding twice in the game’s closing stages against Watford. Gustavo Hamer is a midfielder who showed talent and deserved to play in a better team. This guy is a great defender, he is strong, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from him. Tyler Walker enjoys the game, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. Matthew Godden is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. Jordan Shipley (Quarantine), Fankaty Dabo (knee injury), and Jodi Jones (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be available for Coventry gaffer Mark Robins.
Birmingham has had a mixed bag of results of late, winning two and losing two of their last four Championship matches. Aitor Karanka’s team had won back-to-back games before their recent losing run. The victories came against Huddersfield and Preston. Since then, Blues have lost consecutive home games against Wycombe and Bournemouth heading into the international break. Birmingham lost 3-1 against Bournemouth last time out as Scott Hogan scored his first goal of the season for the hosts. Maikel Kieftenbeld is an experienced player who helps many young players and does not allow opposing players to have a large possession. Scott Hogan enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. Lukas Jutkiewicz is the best and most experienced player of the squad who scored attractive goals, and he is the real leader of the team, all praise for him. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Birmingham boss Aitor Karanka has to contend with reduced team options currently. Josh McEachran (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Adam Clayton (Knee Injury), and Jake Clarke-Salter (Knee Injury) will miss this match.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, although both sides haven’t been too efficient so far in the season.
