Tip Reasoning

We are backing both teams to score when Cambridge host Coventry in the second round of the FA Cup on Sunday and this is available priced at 4/6 with bet365. For our correct score tip we think that the visitors superior quality will tell and are backing them to book a place in the next round with a 2-1 victory. This is available at 8/1 with the same site.

After taking a while to get going Cambridge are finally looking like a team that could challenge for a place in the League Two play-offs come the end of the season. They have managed to pick up points from the sides below them in the table but one thing that has slipped under the radar so far is their inability to beat teams above them. If we discount matches played against reserve sides in the Checkatrade Trophy then we can see that Cambridge have yet to beat a side higher placed in the league and from a higher division in cup matches so far this season.

That stat should give League One side Coventry plenty of confidence going into a fixture that is rapidly turning into a must win. The Sky Blues have lost their previous three games so it is likely that caretaker manager Mark Venus will view this match as one that can both kick start their season and also give his chances of landing the role permanently a healthy boost.

Coventry have only managed to keep a clean sheet in 10% of their away fixtures this season so even though Cambridge are one of the lower scorers in League Two, they should fancy their chances against an out of form defence.
