Cardiff City vs Coventry City Match Analysis and Prediction

Coventry City will be looking for a victory which would take them back into the Championship playoff when they travel to South Wales to face Cardiff City.

The hosts are currently 20th on the table after seeing their three-match winning run come to an end on Saturday, while Coventry are 12th in the standings.

Cardiff’s Steve Morison will welcome the opportunity to go into games without any persiting pressure on him through the recent three-match winning run.

There was speculation about his future at the club, even though he has only recently appointed as interim boss, but after picking up nine points, they have breathing space between Cardiff and the bottom three.

Following Saturday’s defeat at Millwall, they will want to accumulate more points in the short term, but a relegation battle now seems unlikely with four teams behind them seemingly fighting between themselves.

Meanwhile, Coventry have dropped down the table despite having picked up 10 points from a possible 18 in the Championship, courtesy of some of the teams around them putting together unforeseen turnarounds in form.

However, Mark Robins can be pleased with the recent efforts of his squad, especially after they rallied to claim a 3-2 victory at Reading on Saturday.

Although he will have issues with some of Coventry’s defending, Mark Robins will be delightful with the rare occurence of scoring more than twice in a game.

Coventry are sitting five points adrift of sixth place but with an extremely favourable fixture list up until the March international break, and they can still make an impact in the promotion hunt.

Two players scored their first goals of the season at the Madejski Stadium, and Robins will hope that extra help for the likes of Matt Godden and Viktor Gyokeres is a sign of things to come.

Cardiff City news

Cardiff’s backline has been in good form, and Morison in not likely to make any changes despite conceding two goals at Millwall.

Uche Ikpeazu and Will Vaulks are both in contention to start in attack and midfield respectively, with Rubin Colwill returning following a foot issue after missing at the weekend.

Coventry City news

Robins may make a change to his first XI likely down the left-hand side, with Ian Maatsen, Jake Bidwell and Jordan Shipley vying for two positions.

Shipley may miss out like at the weekend though, while Martyn Waghorn is an injury doubt for Tuesday after not being involved against Reading.

Prediction and Odds

Coventry enter the contest off the back of an impressive away win at Reading, and we expect them to have the morale to pick up another away win.

Cardiff have shown some improvement of late, and may not let the three points slip away, which may see the game ending level.

Odds: 2.20 2.05 2.35
