          Cardiff City vs Coventry Prediction, Tips & Stats

          Cardiff City and Coventry City will meet in South Wales for a set of midweek Championship games just a handful of days on from the Bluebirds beating their rivals Swansea City in the first all-Welsh derby of the season.

          Cardiff were excellent against Swansea City in the South Wales derby and although games came later on in the game, the club were comfortable from start to finish. Ollie Tanner scored in the 2-0 win before Aaron Ramsey got a dream goal for his boyhood club against their arch rivals with a penalty finish.

          This doesn't, however, overlook what has otherwise been a dreadful season for Cardiff so far. The club have all but sold the idea to fans that they won't be getting into the playoffs this season after letting in 10 goals and scoring the same amount and once again failing to find any sort of consistency.

          The only other win Cardiff have in the league this season was in a 2-1 narrow victory over Sheffield Wednesday. Ike Ugbo scored the opening goal that day, as Ryan Wintle held his nerve and managed to convert his penalty in the 98th minute.

          As for Coventry, it hasn't exactly been a much better season so far with them just one place higher in the table. Last time out, Coventry grabbed a point on the road with a finish from Joel Latibeaudiere in the first half before Aaron Connolly scored a late equaliser. The Sky Blues also conceded 18 shots that day.

          The Midlands outfit have now drawn four games in a row with them managing to get a point away to Swansea and at home to Sunderland and Watford before their recent draw with Hull. Coventry's last win was in a 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough, as Matt Godden and Haji Wright scored alongside an own goal.

          Cardiff City team news

          Cardiff have been relatively fortunate on the injury front. The only major problem they have right now is Meite, who is set to face a late fitness test here after coming off in the South Wales derby. Ugbo is going to feature down the middle again, while Aaron Ramsey should remain in the number 10 role. Karlan Ahearne-Grant is also fit to play and should do so here. Kion Etete got more minutes in the previous game, and he could feature here, while Rubin Colwill and Joe Ralls have rerturned to fitness.

          Coventry City team news

          Haji Wright came off in the 1-1 draw with Hull City last time out and he now faces a late fitness test for this game. Matt Godden is fit, however, and he should start up top with Ayari behind them. Josh Dasilva, Kelly and Eccles are all fit to play in midfield, while van Ewijk will look to carry on his decent form at right wing-back. McFadzeamn, Binks and Latibeaudiere all got booked from starting roles in defence last time out and they should feature here.
