Coventry – Huddersfield Prediction and Preview
- Monday evening’s Championship action takes us to the Coventry Building Society Arena, where last season’s play-off finalists Coventry City search for their second league win after a solid, yet uninspiring start (W1, D4, L2). They were condemned to their second league loss of the season against Cardiff, a 3-2 defeat in which boss Mark Robins bemoaned his side’s domination of possession as “vanity” given the result.
- One positive the Sky Blues can take into this game is the fact that they remain unbeaten at home (W1, D2), despite falling behind three times during their most recent outing here against Watford. Their sole win came against a struggling Middlesbrough side though, so building upon that with a second consecutive home H2H win against Huddersfield for the first time in this fixture’s 104-year history would be the ideal scenario.
- The Terriers will be keen to avoid such a fate and may be confident of doing so after sending Neil Warnock on his merry way with a 2-2 draw against Stoke and the club’s “eternal gratitude”, as they put it. Taking Wanock’s place is former Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore. He successfully led the Owls to promotion in League One last season and should enter a confident dressing room with the Yorkshire-based outfit unbeaten in their last three league outings (W2, D1).
- That run puts Huddersfield above their hosts in the table, which is perhaps surprising given they were expected to be in the throes of a relegation scrap from the outset. Tightening up at the back may be key to any continuation of their rise up the table, with no clean sheets in any of their last seven away fixtures perhaps leaving them with a lot to do in games, even if they do often handle that with gusto (W3, D2, L2).
- Players to watch: Coventry’s Matthew Godden is on course to top his finest Championship scoring season with five goals already in his first seven appearances, yet none of his last three scoring games came in victories (D2, L1). It was Jack Rudoni’s equaliser that brought the curtain down on Warnock’s Huddersfield career in the previous round, meaning he’s scored crucial goals that were also the final strike of the game in two of his last three appearances.
- Hot stat: Just one of Coventry’s last seven games produced a goalless first half whilst both teams had scored before the interval in three of those matches.
