Coventry City News and Form – Will the Sky Blues hit back with a win?

Mark Robins’ Coventry City surprised many with their stunning start to the season. The Sky Blues, who are sharing Birmingham’s ground at the moment, kicked off their league campaign by going ten games unbeaten, winning five and drawing five.

However, they were brought back down to earth with a big bump in their last League One outing, losing 4-0 to Rotherham United at the New York Stadium. Paul Warne’s Millers ran riot on home turf, with Matt Crooks and Michael Smith scoring two each in the big victory. Coventry followed that up with a loss in the Football League Trophy on Tuesday, as City were beaten 8-7 on penalties at Forest Green Rovers.

Key-Facts – Coventry City v Tranmere Rovers

  • Tranmere have won just two of 11 league games this term
  • The Sky Blues are unbeaten at St Andrew’s in eight league and cup matches


Tranmere Rovers News and Form – Another tough day at the office for Mellon’s Whites?

Micky Mellon’s Tranmere Rovers, who were promoted from EFL League Two last term, have started life back in the third tier by taking just nine points from 11 fixtures. Rovers have struggled so far, winning two and losing six (three draws).

The club have picked up just one league win in eight, which is no doubt a worry. Since beating Burton Albion 2-1 at Prenton Park last month, the Whites have fallen to back-to-back defeats. Mellon’s men were thumped 4-1 by high-flying Ipswich Town at Portman Road before narrowly losing 1-0 at home to Shrewsbury Town last time out in the league. On a more positive note, they did manage to beat Aston Villa’s U21 side in the Football League Trophy on Tuesday.

Tranmere’s season has not got going so far, and Sunday’s trip to St Andrew’s will no doubt be another tough assignment for last season’s League Two play-off winners.
