Match preview

A Coventry City outfit brimming with confidence will set about making it a trio of victories on the bounce, when they welcome promotion-chasing Sunderland to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday, February 25th.

The Sky Blues, for their part, have enjoyed a timely return to form over the course of the last week.

After seeing their charge towards the promotion playoff picture brought to a firm halt owing to a dismal stretch of form on the back of the World Cup break, Coventry, of late, have finally begun to get things back on track.

All told, since the end of last month, Mark Robins’ troops have slipped to defeat just once in five, in narrow fashion at the hands of West Bromwich Albion.

Across their four other fixtures during this time, Saturday’s hosts have bagged ten points from an available twelve, including wins in each of their last two.

After top scorer Viktor Gyokeres proved the difference in a hard-fought downing of Millwall, the Swede was back on target once more at the weekend, to cap a 2-0 victory over Rotherham.

The Sky Blues, in turn, have climbed back into the top half of the Championship table.

And Robins and co. may well fancy their chances of kicking on ever further towards the playoff race on Saturday afternoon.

This comes with upcoming opponents Sunderland having endured an altogether less fruitful stretch over the course of the last week.

The Black Cats, after themselves clinching ten points from an available twelve from late January into February, since failed to emerge triumphant from either of the club’s last two.

First, a home meeting with Bristol City saw Tony Mowbray’s men surrender two points a full three minutes into injury time.

Then, last time out, their woes were compounded, as Leeds United loanee Joe Gelhardt’s 2nd-half finish proved to be little more than a consolation en route to a 2-1 defeat at Rotherham.

Such struggles have culminated in Sunderland tumbling out of the playoff places, down to 8th.

We at 101 are therefore backing an eventual stalemate to come to fruition upon the full-time whistle bringing proceedings between the Black Cats and Coventry to a close at the Ricoh Arena this Saturday evening.
