Cardiff vs Coventry Predictions

  • At least three goals have been scored in four of the last six home league games for Cardiff.
  • At least three goals have been scored in six of the last ten Coventry away league contests.
  • Cardiff have lost nine of their last 12 home Championship matches while Coventry have won two of their last three league games on the road.

Back goals when Robins’ men head to Bluebirds’ nest

Cardiff looked tired in their 2-1 defeat to Millwall on Saturday and could come unstuck at home to Coventry this week unless Steve Morison makes changes. Morison blamed fatigue on the lack of performance from his players at the Den, but still argued they should have had a ‘stonewall’ penalty that could have changed the course of the game. He’s an inexperienced manager at this level and perhaps was left to regret not freshening up his line-up after a gruelling run of games.

Coventry kept their playoff hopes alive with a battling win at Reading on Saturday and come into this in much better shape physically too. The Sky Blues have played one fewer game since the turn of the year and Mark Robins has a pretty strong squad at his disposal.

City could earn a third away win in four in Cardiff, but a safer play here could be to back the game to contain at least three goals. At least three goals have been scored in four of the last six home league games for Cardiff, likewise in six of the last ten Coventry away league contests.

Coventry will be a true test of Cardiff’s home turnaround

Coventry needed to score three to get the points at Select Car Leasing Stadium and it’s now five away games on the bounce without a clean sheet for them. Cardiff, who have scored six times in their last two home league games ought to register at least once on Tuesday night.

But we can’t be sure that the Bluebirds miserable home form has truly turned a corner after back-to-back home wins over Nottingham Forest and Peterborough because of the shocking form of the latter of those two opponents. Coventry have gone to tougher places and won recently, so we expect them to contribute to the over 2.5 goals play.

Coventry have won three, drawn three and lost only one of their last seven Championship road trips, with an average of 1-0 goals conceded and 1.57 scored, so we are minded to back a 2-1 away win for the visitors in correct score betting.
