      Sheffield United vs Coventry Predictions

      Coventry are unbeaten in their last 11 matches in the league and are just 2 points behind leaders Burton in 2nd place. Given their two most immediate rivals at the top have both lost their managers to Championship clubs over the past fortnight, City should benefit from a bit of stability and will be optimistic about their chances of maintaining their promotion push.

      Given their run of form it is a bit of a surprise that Sheffield United are the bookies favourites to win this match. The Blades are in a bad run in the league and haven’t won any of their last 6 matches. You have to go back almost 2 months to their 3-0 win over Fleetwood for the last time they picked up maximum points.

      Therefore it is a bit difficult to understand the bookies line of thinking here. Coventry may have only managed draws in their last two games but they have been far more impressive than Sheffield United this season as the 12 point and 10 place gap between the sides will testify.

      Therefore the West Midlands club look excellent value at 3/4 to secure at least a point from this match.

      They have enough about them to do more than that though. Sheffield United have taken just 1 point from their last 3 home games in the league and they’ve conceded twice or more in all of those matches, losing 4-2 against struggling Shrewsbury in their last match at Bramall Lane.

      A confident Coventry side therefore look good value to secure a 2-1 win in this match at 10/1.
