Sheffield Wednesday entertain Coventry City in a huge EFL Championship fixture this Saturday. Since taking over from the sacked Garry Monk, Tony Pulis has failed to win any of his opening eight. After four straight defeats, these are desperate times for the Owls. Mark Robins’ Coventry have picked up of late, and the Sky Blues will be tough opponents for struggling Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Pulis’ winless run to continue?

Tony Pulis started life at Hillsborough with a 1-0 away reverse to Preston North End at Deepdale before Sheffield Wednesday drew their next three. However, things have been dire of late, with the Sheffield club losing each of their last four.

In a huge six-pointer on Tuesday, Sheffield Wednesday left the City Ground with no goals and zero points. The Owls never recovered from Nottingham Forest’s early goal, with Lewis Grabban making sure of the points with three minutes left on the clock.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 0810 GMT, Friday 18 December)

Pulis’ side remain rock bottom of the Championship table with 19 games now played. As we slowly but surely reach the middle part of the season, Wednesday desperately need to start putting some points on the board. In truth, Saturday’s showdown at Hillsborough is a must-win game for the Sheffield outfit.

Coventry City Preview – Can the Sky Blues make it back-to-back away wins?

Coventry City, last season’s EFL League One champions, have made a steady start to their season. Coventry have been on an excellent run of late, sealing notable wins over the likes of Cardiff City, Rotherham United and Wycombe Wanderers in recent weeks.

Mark Robins’ side struggled on the road in the early stages of the season, failing to win any of their opening eight away from St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium. However, they picked up a priceless away victory last weekend, as a brace from Liam Kelly was enough to give City a 2-1 win over Wycombe at Adams Park.

Coventry are beginning to enjoy life back in the second tier, and we fancy City to leave Hillsborough with a point on Saturday, piling more misery on Pulis & Co. in the process. The draw is nicely priced at 12/5.

Since a 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium back in October, Coventry have scored in each of their following five away matches. Take a punt on the draw and both teams to score on Saturday at 15/4.
