Coventry City Preview – Can Coventry continue winning start?

Wins either side of the summer break should give Coventry City plenty of confidence ahead of this EFL Cup 1st round tie against Northampton Town, especially after getting the new Championship season off to a win over Nottingham Forest.

It was a triumphant return to the Ricoh Arena for Coventry City as they recorded an opening day 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest and this victory followed a comprehensive 6-1 rout of Millwall on the final day of last season.

The Sky Blues therefore have a decent chance of making it three wins on the trot when they entertain League Two side, Northampton Town, on Wednesday night.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Northampton Town Preview – Can Cobblers build on solid start?

Northampton Town made a good start to their new campaign in League Two on the weekend when they registered a 1-0 home win over Port Vale which may have gone a little way to easing the pain suffered from last season’s relegation from League One.

However, Northampton have some work ahead of them if they’re to make a swift return to the third tier and indeed, get past Coventry City, in this 1st leg of this season’s EFL Cup especially away from home where The Cobblers have been poor.

The visitors have failed to win any of their last 19 matches in all competitions on their travels which includes 12 defeats and failing to score in nine of these 19 games as well.
