(odds taken 1412 GMT, Thursday 29 October)

Coventry have not won since beating Queens Park Rangers 3-2 on matchday two. Since then, just two points from a possible 18 has followed. Can Robins’ struggling side cause a big upset in Birmingham on Friday night?

Reading Preview – Another easy three points for the leaders?

Reading have surprised many so far, but the Royals have looked the real deal in the Championship. New boss Veljko Paunovic, who arrived in the summer, has hit the ground running at the Madejski Stadium, guiding Reading to seven wins and a draw from eight Championship matches.

The Berkshire club started the season with four straight league wins over Derby County, Barnsley, Cardiff City and Watford. They then drew 0-0 with Middlesbrough before winning another three on the spin. On Tuesday night, Reading left Blackburn Rovers with an impressive 4-2 victory to retain their spot at the top of the division.
