Match preview

A Coventry City outfit eyeing a return to winning ways will act as hosts in a Championship clash at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Thursday, December 29th.

Recent weeks, of course, have seen Coventry’s goals for the season shift in nothing short of dramatic fashion.

This comes after the Sky Blues surged from the foot of England’s 2nd tier into the top half, setting their sights on a place in the promotion playoff picture.

Such hopes, in turn, were dealt a blow last time out, when Mark Robins’ men were condemned to defeat.

A trip to Bramall Lane saw Championship top-scorer Viktor Gyokeres’ 12th of the term ultimately prove to be little more than a consolation, en route to a 3-1 victory for hosts Sheffield United.

Coventry, as a result, remain 12th in the standings, albeit in the knowledge that a 2nd win in three on Thursday could catapult them to the heights of the top-six.

Hopeful of putting a firm end to such lofty hopes on the part of Mark Robins and co, though, will be a Cardiff City outfit desperate for a victory of their own.

The Bluebirds, at present, are in the midst of a five-game winless streak.

After slipping to back-to-back defeats, the Welsh outfit have since rattled off a trio of single-point hauls, courtesy of draws with all of Stoke City, Blackpool and Queens Park Rangers.

The last, on Boxing Day, saw Mark Hudson’s side fail to register a single shot on target, in an altogether underwhelming affair against QPR.

With the Championship season having now passed the halfway point, Cardiff, in turn, sit just two places and two points clear of the bottom three.

And we at 101 do not envision the situation improving all that much for Thursday’s visitors to Coventry, either.

Instead, we are backing the Sky Blues to make short work of their upcoming opponents, en route to a one-sided scoreline come the full-time whistle in England’s west Midlands.
