Match preview

A Coventry City outfit on the up will have their sights firmly set on all three points this weekend, as they prepare to play host to a Blackpool outfit at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

The Sky Blues, of course, have taken their place front and centre in the Championship headlines over the course of the last couple of weeks.

This comes owing to a remarkable upturn in form, which has seen Mark Robins’ troops climb comfortably away from their previous spot at the foot of England’s 2nd tier.

All told, Coventry have slipped to just a solitary defeat in nine, and even that came at the hands of table-topping Burnley earlier this month.

Since, Saturday’s hosts have rattled off ten points from an available twelve.

The latest midweek round of fixtures saw Hudson’s men showcase their fighting spirit once more, as Viktor Gyokeres’ injury-time spot-kick prevented what would have proven a morale-sapping defeat at the hands of Rotherham United.

Coventry, as a result, will head into the weekend’s action in the knowledge that another three-point haul will see them, almost certainly, leave the relegation zone in the rear view.

This comes despite the Midlands-based outfit boasting at least two games in hand on every other club in England’s 2nd tier.

Safe to say, then, that the upcoming visitors to the Coventry Building Society Arena will have their work cut out for them.

Blackpool, to their credit, though, have themselves looked largely solid of late.

The seasiders have tasted defeat in just one of their last five league outings, a run which includes impressive triumphs over both Watford and, last time out, Preston North End.

The latter came owing to a double on the part of Jerry Yates, followed by further strikes from Arsenal loanee Charlie Patino and CJ Hamilton.

Yates, in particular, is worth keeping an eye on when it comes to potential goalscorers this weekend, with the 25-year-old having now climbed to the top of the Championship goalscoring charts owing to a head-turning haul of six goals in his last four appearances.

Even the efforts of their in-form frontman, though, look unlikely to prove enough to guide Blackpool to victory this weekend.

We at 101, instead, are backing hosts Coventry to ultimately emerge on the right side of the scoreline come the final whistle on Saturday evening.
