Coventry City vs Blackburn Rovers Predictions
The hosts are coming off a 1-1 draw with Derby County before the international break. In the 28th minute, Matthew Godden put the Sky Blues ahead, but in the 66th minute, Tom Lawrence equalized from the spot for the hosts.
Reading defeated Blackburn Rovers 1-0 away from home. The difference between the two teams was Josh Laurent’s goal in the 78th minute.
The setback delivered a serious blow to the Lancashire club’s promotion hopes. After two more games, they have plummeted to sixth place, just two points ahead of seventh-placed Middlesbrough.
Coventry City is currently in 11th place with 55 points from 38 games, putting them within striking distance of the top six.
Although their recent dismal record leaves a lot to be desired, the two sides still have a chance at promotion. Blackburn has been particularly dismal on the road and will need to enhance their game if they are to return to the Premier League after a decade out.
Goals have been hard to come by for both teams, therefore we’re picking the hosts to win by a single goal.
