Portsmouth vs Coventry City Match Preview
Coventry have come through a series of tough away tests with a strong degree of success recently and should not be fearful of this latest trip to Fratton Park.
In their last five matches on the road, the Sky Blues have faced four other League One promotion hopefuls in Luton, Barnsley, Sunderland and Peterborough and remained unbeaten against all of those sides, winning two and drawing two.
The most recent of those was a remarkable 5-4 victory at Sunderland which, going into the Easter weekend, meant Coventry still had a slight chance of pipping Doncaster and Peterborough for the final play-off place.
It’s therefore possible they could yet end up playing Portsmouth again this season, with Kenny Jackett’s team embroiled in a five-way scrap for the two automatic promotion places but also facing the distinct possibility of having to contest the play-offs.
Pompey have recovered well from a costly sequence of draws during February which meant they slipped off Luton’s pace at the top of the table, and their stellar form since has included lifting the Checkatrade Trophy at Wembley after a penalty shootout against Sunderland.
But with Coventry having found such a successful formula on their travels of late, they look worth backing to continue that undefeated away run on the south coast.
