Coventry City vs Middlesbrough match preview

Two sides in search of a bounce-back result are set to kick the Championship weekend into gear this Saturday, August 12th, at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

The matchup in question will see Coventry City act as hosts, in a meeting with Middlesbrough.

Both of these sides, of course, missed out on promotion to the Premier League in agonising fashion in 2022/23, by way of playoff heartbreak.

And their respective fortunes did not exactly improve on the opening weekend of the Championship season, last time out.

Beginning with the former, Coventry actually looked set for a stellar opening day result, after carrying the lead into the closing quarter of an hour at Leicester City, courtesy of Kyle McFadzean’s finish early in the 2nd-half.

A late brace on the part of Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, however, saw the scoreline turned on its head, and Mark Robins’ troops depart the King Power Stadium with nothing to show for their efforts.

Turning attentions Saturday’s visitors, Middlesbrough, too, found themselves emerging on the wrong side of a tightly-contested affair on opening day.

Michael Carrick’s men were tasked with a home meeting with Millwall, in their bid to kick the new campaign into gear in altogether more positive fashion than their last.

Despite dominating possession, however, a lack of cutting edge in the final third ultimately proved costly, en route to an eventual 1-0 defeat.

With the departure of star hitman Chuba Akpom looming large, could a similar story await Boro in their trip to England’s west Midlands this weekend?

We at 101 are backing hosts Coventry as narrow favourites, but see an eventual sharing of the spoils as the most likely outcome upon the full-time whistle bringing a close to proceedings at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
