Coventry City Preview – Can the Sky Blues pick up a precious three points?

Coventry City are in danger of slipping out of the top-six race, as Mark Robins’ troops have picked up just one win from their last six, losing three times in the process. Last time out, City failed to beat lowly Derby County in a 1-1 draw at Pride Park.

Their poor run has seen them slip down to 11th position, now six points away from the final play-off spot. Still, things are very tight in and around the play-offs, and three points on Saturday will take them to within one victory of Blackburn.

Our betting prediction:
Draw at half time

(odds taken 1307 GMT, Friday 1 April)

Whatever happens from now until the end of the campaign, Coventry have had an excellent season. Many tipped them to struggle before a ball was kicked, but Robins’ City have certainly proved the doubts wrong. Can they get their play-off bid back on track with maximum points on Saturday?

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Will the Blue and Whites leave with a positive result?

Blackburn Rovers are another club that have defied the bookies this season. Although Tony Mowbray’s boys have been in patchy form since the turn of the year, the Blue and Whites have been one of the surprise packages in this year’s Championship.

Blackburn had an extremely disappointing result last time out, however, crashing to a 1-0 defeat to struggling Reading at the Select Car Leasing Stadium. In 2022, Rovers have suffered six league defeats and have won just four Championship games.
