Coventry City vs Watford match preview

Two sides fresh off largely underwhelming starts to the new campaign are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at the Coventry Building Society Arena this Saturday, September 2nd.

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

Beginning with the former, after missing out on promotion back to the top tier of English football in agonising fashion last time out, Coventry have since struggled to fully recover.

A record of just one win from four leaves the Sky Blues sitting in mid-table in the Championship, with their EFL Cup adventure having also been brought to an end in the first round at the hands of League Two AFC Wimbledon.

Most recently, after battling their way to a hard-fought point at Swansea City, Mark Robins’ troops welcomed Sunderland to the west Midlands, eyeing a return to winning ways.

When all was said and done, however, the absence of summer departure Viktor Gyokeres was felt once more, en route to a goalless stalemate.

Turning attentions towards Saturday’s visitors, Watford, for their part, have not fared much better over the early weeks of the campaign.

In fact, the Hornets, themselves reeling from a number of high-profile summer exits, have managed a point less than Coventry with four gameweeks in the books.

After kicking things into gear like a house on fire courtesy of a four-goal opening day drubbing of Queens Park Rangers, Valerien Ismael’s side have since been condemned to three defeats in four across all competitions.

Not only that, but Watford have failed to find the net in any of their last three, most recently condemned to the wrong side of a 1-0 scoreline at home to Blackburn Rovers.

Add to this a League Cup exit at Stevenage, and the Hornets are bordering on a full-blown early-season crisis.

So, all of this considered, how do we at 101 envision Saturday’s action unfolding at the Coventry Building Society Arena?

Owing to Watford’s ongoing woes, we are backing hosts Coventry to ultimately emerge narrow victors.
