Match preview

A Coventry City outfit eyeing a return to winning ways are set to act as hosts in a New Year’s Day Championship showdown at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Their opponents? Bristol City.

Coventry, of course, have slipped into something of a dip in form of late.

After surging clear of the bottom three to the comforts of mid-table courtesy of four wins from four heading into the World Cup break, the Sky Blues have since notched just a solitary victory from their last five.

A 3-1 Boxing Day defeat at the hands of Sheffield United was then followed last time out by an altogether disappointing stalemate with relegation-battling Cardiff City.

Mark Robins’ men, as a result, have slipped back down to 14th in the table.

Owing to the remarkably tight nature of the standings in England’s 2nd tier at present, though, Coventry will head into the upcoming round of action in the knowledge that a bounce-back result would guide them firmly back into the hunt for a promotion playoff spot.

Hopeful of throwing a spanner in such plans on Sunday, though, will be a Bristol City side themselves in desperate need of a positive result.

Dating back to late October, Bristol have notched just a solitary victory from their last ten attempts across all competitions.

The Robins, to their credit, did manage to clinch a credible share of the spoils at Millwall last time out, courtesy of a hard-fought goalless draw.

But Nigel Pearson’s men nevertheless find themselves front and centre in the fight against relegation to League One, sitting just three points clear of the bottom three as things stand.

And we at 101 do not envision this situation improving all that much for Bristol come the full-time whistle in the west Midlands on Sunday evening.

Instead, backing hosts Coventry to ultimately emerge on the right side of the scoreline looks the safe bet.
