Preston North End vs Coventry City Match Analysis & Prediction
28/02/2023 10:45 pm
Preston North End and Coventry City will meet in the Championship on Tuesday evening, hoping for a victory to help them reach the playoffs. Both teams are in 12th and 11th place in the standings, with one game in hand over five of the seven teams immediately above them.
Coventry City was one of the worst sides in the Championship during December and January, collecting just nine points from as many games to drop out of playoff contention.
However, since a hard-fought defeat at West Bromwich Albion, the Sky Blues have won three matches in a row, taking 10 points from their last four games and moving up the table.
Millwall, Rotherham United, and Sunderland have all been defeated for losing just one goal; that strike came in the closing minutes versus Sunderland at home on Saturday.
Preston North End has failed to record consecutive victories since before the World Cup break, leaving the club in mid-table.
Nevertheless, ending a four-match streak without success with a victory over Wigan Athletic at the weekend has kept Ryan Lowe’s side in the conversation for promotion.
After coming from behind to overcome the improving Latics on Saturday, Preston is now three matches unbeaten and sit just one point behind ninth-placed Sunderland.
Preston North End vs. Coventry City Head to head

Coventry is expected to make at least one change against Mansfield, as Kasey Palmer sustained a muscle injury during the team’s last match. Although Josh Wilson-Esbrand was introduced on that occasion, Matt Godden may be recalled in what could be the only alteration.
