Coventry City Prediction – Can Coventry move up into top two?

Sunday’s hosts, Coventry City, were handed their first defeat in this new League One season last weekend when they were dealt a heavy 4-0 defeat away at Rotherham United, but Coventry return to their ‘home’ surroundings of Birmingham’s St Andrews this Sunday where they’ll take on strugglers, Tranmere Rovers.

Nevertheless, it’s been a successful start to Coventry’s new third tier campaign under manager Mark Robins as the hosts have produced some impressive results so far this season, particularly at St Andrews, where the Sky Blues have won 5 of their 6 matches to date.

An excellent home record of 5-1-0 10/4 includes wins against Southend United, Bristol Rovers, Gillingham, Blackpool and AFC Wimbledon along with a point in a 1-1 draw with Doncaster Rovers, while the bigger picture shows Coventry are unbeaten in their last 9 matches on home turf.

Within this 9-match sequence at home, Coventry City have kept a total of 5 clean sheets and it’s been their solid defensive unit which has been the foundation of Coventry’s success to date.

Tranmere Rovers Prediction – Can Tranmere pull away from relegation zone?

Visitors, Tranmere Rovers will make their way down to the west midlands looking to avoid a third consecutive defeat in League One following recent back-to-back defeats to Ipswich Town 4-1 and Shrewsbury Town 1-0 and indeed, Rovers have lost 3 of their last 4 matches overall, with a previous loss to Oxford United 3-0 as well.

Tranmere head into this Sunday clash having recorded just 1 win out of their last 8 matches overall in League One and that was a 2-1 home win against Burton Albion, but with just 2 wins overall so far in this campaign, the visitors look to have their work cut out against Coventry here.

To make matters worse, both of Tranmere’s league wins to date have come on home turf at their Prenton Park, while results away from home have been pretty woeful as their away record of 0-1-4 2/12 indicates.

Defeats at Portsmouth, Bristol Rovers, Oxford United and Ipswich Town have also resulted in Tranmere failing to score in 3 of these 4 matches, so the signs certainly aren’t promising for this clash.


Key-Facts – Coventry City v Tranmere Rovers

  • Coventry City are unbeaten in their last 9 matches at home in League One
  • Coventry have kept 5 clean sheets within these last 9 matches
  • Tranmere Rovers have lost 4 of their first 5 away matches in League One


Betting Tips Verdict

Coventry City will be keen to return to winning ways here and Tranmere appear to be powerless to resist.
