Coventry vs Cardiff Predictions

  • Coventry City are unbeaten in their last seven home Championship games, winning five.
  • Cardiff City, meanwhile, are on a five-match winless run.
  • The Bluebirds have only taken 11 points on the road this season – a record worse than all but Rotherham United, Reading and Huddersfield Town in the second tier.
  • Coventry beat Cardiff 1-0 in the reverse fixture in October.

Home comforts crucial for Cov

The recent news that Coventry City will be able to continue playing at the CBS Arena in the immediate future was a boost for the club both on and off the pitch – Mark Robins’ team have not lost any of their last seven home games, winning five of them, and Thursday’s meeting with struggling Cardiff City represents an opportunity for them to make further inroads towards the top six.

Only five teams – four of them currently occupying play-off places – have bettered Cov’s return of 20 home points in the Championship this season, with 17 of them coming since early October. Even more impressively, Coventry have kept five clean sheets in those seven games, and only five Championship teams have conceded fewer than their 25 goals against all season.

The hosts’ defensive solidity could tee them up for a successful outing against Cardiff, whose tally of 20 goals scored is the lowest in the Championship this campaign. Mark Hudson’s team have gone five games without a win, though the last three were draws, and have only won two of their last 11 matches. Meanwhile, the Bluebirds fell to a 1-0 defeat when they met Coventry on home soil in October – a repeat may be in the offing.

Hosts set to continue run

With Cardiff struggling for points and goals and Coventry impressing at home, backing Robins’ team for victory represents a prudent play for Thursday’s game.

Meanwhile, a side with four clean sheets in their last five home games could be set for a 1-0 success.
