Coventry vs Burton Albion Match Preview
Coventry host Burton Albion for their Matchday 36 clash in great spirits after connecting a five-match unbeaten streak including a narrow return to the winning ways with an upset at Accrington Stanley (0-1) last week with a single goal from Bright Enobakhare, who’s been in fine form since early February.
Sky Blues have been rock-solid at the back and based their success on it as they beat Rochdale (0-1) and Walsall (3-0) as well as held Luton (1-1) to a draw in three outings beforehand. Mark Robins will now want more of the same and we feel they’ll be very motivated to impress at Ricoh Arena once again.
Burton have suffered just one loss in their last four outings, where Fleetwood Town (0-1) snatched all three points at Pirelli Stadium, but their goalscoring woes will be more worrying as the attacking line led by Liam Boyce struggled to produce and they earned just three points along the way.
Brewers have seen some very narrow occasions and held Shrewsbury Town (1-1), Barnsley (0-0), and Walsall (0-0) along the way but building on their mid-table spot, Nigel Clough will have to find a cure for such troubles in the final third. We don’t see them making it happen in West Midlands, though, and this could mean a drop down the table.
We will thus back Coventry to secure all three points and going for a Home win still feels like great value at 7/5 with 7/5 with bet365, as we hope to see them coping with the top of the table with a very important time ahead.
They have based their success on a tough defensive approach and we expect more of the same, as we also stick with a No on Both teams to score at Evens with William Hill. We’ve seen goals on both ends in just one of both sides’ respective last four outings and we feel this adds to such a belief as well.
