Match preview

Two sides in the midst of altogether contrasting spells of form are set to go head-to-head in a Championship clash at The Coventry Building Society Arena on Tuesday, November 8th.

The matchup in question will see a Coventry City outfit on the up play host to an increasingly relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic.

First, let’s take a look at the recent efforts of the former.

After enduring nothing short of a nightmare start to the campaign, Coventry have, over the course of the last few weeks, turned things around in nothing short of spectacular fashion.

A trip to Vicarage Road to take on a Watford outfit fresh off three successive victories of their own ultimately culminated in the visitors departing on the right side of a 1-0 scoreline, owing to top scorer Viktor Gyokeres’ finish early in the 2nd-half.

Mark Robins’ troops, in turn, have climbed comfortably clear of the relegation zone, to 15th in the table.

Not only that, but, should such fine form continue across Coventry’s two games in hand, then Tuesday’s hosts could find themselves in the top half of the table, pushing for a spot in the promotion playoff battle.

Safe to say, then, that the Sky Blues are set to head into the latest midweek round of fixtures in England’s 2nd tier as favourites to bag all three points.

This comes with Coventry’s upcoming opponents, Wigan Athletic, in the midst of an alarming stretch of results.

The Latics, prior to this weekend, had fallen to defeat on no fewer than five consecutive occasions.

To the credit of Leam Richardson’s troops, they did manage to steady the ship to at least some degree on Saturday, courtesy of a hard-fought point at Swansea.

However, Wigan have nevertheless slipped into the thick of the relegation dogfight, now sitting clear of only struggling Huddersfield Town.

We at 101, as a result, view Tuesday’s clash at The Coventry Building Society Arena as one of the more straightforward-to-call fixtures of the upcoming gameweek.

Hosts Coventry emerging with a comfortable victory looks the safe bet as things stand.
