Coventry City vs Bristol Rovers Match Preview
Coventry City face an uncertain future, but are backed to banish their worries temporarily on Sunday by winning at home to Bristol Rovers.
The Sky Blues, who still have a chance of being promoted to the Championship, could in theory be expelled by the Football League later this month because they are in danger of being kicked out of the Ricoh Arena in their home city by the owners, rugby club Wasps.
Hopefully that worst-case-scenario will not come to pass. But Coventry’s long-suffering fans, who went through a similar experience six years ago when the club had to play home games at Northampton, could use some good news on the pitch and may well get it this weekend.
Mark Robins’ play-off hopefuls have been a bit patchy in terms of form this season, but just now they are faring better than Bristol Rovers who have gone off the boil since manager Graham Coughlan enjoyed an excellent first three months in charge.
Rovers are still not safe in a desperately tight League One relegation battle but while they are expected to avoid the drop, they may have to wait to increase their points tally with Coventry generally pretty solid at home.
