A Coventry City outfit brimming with confidence will kick their promotion push back into gear on Saturday, April 29th, when they welcome Birmingham City to the Coventry Building Society Arena.

The Sky Blues, of course, currently find themselves front and centre in the tense battle for a top-six berth.

After at one point in the season looking like serious contenders for the drop, Mark Robins’ troops have since willed their way up the standings in England’s 2nd tier, occupying 5th spot with just two rounds of fixtures remaining.

This comes in no small part owing to a stellar recent stretch of form, dating all the way back to early February.

Across 15 outings in this timeframe, Coventry have fallen to just a solitary defeat.

Not only that, but they have bagged seven points from an available nine leading into the weekend’s action, most recently putting relegation-battling Reading to the sword by two goals to one.

After looking primed for a surge up the table courtesy of a pair of successive victories leading into April, the Blues have since managed just one more three-point haul from five.

Two of their last three, meanwhile, have culminated in defeat, including in concerning fashion this past weekend.

This came as a home meeting with 2nd-from-bottom Blackpool saw John Eustace’s men put to the sword by a goal to nil.

Birmingham nevertheless remain comfortably ten points clear of the drop zone, but now with very little to play for over the campaign’s final weeks.

We at 101 are therefore backing hosts Coventry to ultimately emerge on the right side of the result come the full-time whistle in England’s west Midlands on Saturday evening.
