Tip Reasoning

Bury’s remarkable turnaround in fortunes continued at the weekend as they recorded an impressive victory away to Charlton. A team who were seemingly incapable of defending just a few months ago are now looking much tighter at the back and are picking up vital points week in, week out. On the other hand, Coventry really are looking doomed after passing up a big chance to win against relegation rivals Swindon on Saturday afternoon (lost 3-1 at home).

With the way these two are going right now, there’s only one team to side with here. The hosts are in excellent form, whereas Coventry might as well make their plans for starting next season in League Two now. On this basis, backing the hosts to win at 13/10, really is too good an opportunity to miss.

With just one loss in their last eight, Bury have very much got back on the right path of late and come into this fixture off the back of two very pleasing wins against both Chesterfield and Charlton. Back in front of their own fans here, Lee Clark’s men can continue this promising form.

All season long, Bury have been a side capable of scoring goals, as their total of 51 scored suggests, while in James Vaughan they have one of the better League One strikers in their ranks. Defending was the problem, but this crisis coincided with injuries and, with players returning of late, The Shakers have tightened up, keeping three clean sheets in their last four.

It’s been a bad season from the word go for Coventry, but playing on the road is where they’ve fared worst. The visitors have won just one of their 17 away matches this season, conceding 34 and scoring just 13 in the process.

Having lost 3-1 at home to relegation rivals Swindon at the weekend, it’s hard to imagine a Sky Blues side who’re short on confidence making much headway in this fixture.
