For our Coventry vs. Stoke prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
Coventry City continue their play-off push in the Championship as they face Stoke City this weekend.
Coventry City currently sit 8th in the Championship with fifteen wins, twelve draws and eleven losses from thirty-eight games this season.
The Sky Blues have had a successful campaign after getting their act together following an abysmal start and they're now well placed to make a late run at the top six.
They enter this game unbeaten in their last nine matches having won five and drawn four of those.
Most recently, Coventry comprehensively thumped Blackpool 4-1 away from home courtesy of goals from Ben Sheaf, Kyle McFadzean, Matt Godden and an own goal.
Their record on home soil is also very strong with Coventry winning three and drawing two of their last five home matches.
Mark Robins' men have been rock solid defensively in recent weeks two, conceding just three times in their last five matches.
Coventry are currently just three points outside of the top six with eight games remaining. An eventual play-off berth is a realistic goal but they need to remain consistent, and a home game against an in form Stoke side is a tricky encounter that will be quite competitive.
Stoke City currently sit 13th in the Championship with thirteen wins, nine draws and sixteen losses from thirty-eight games this season.
It's been a fairly dismal season for Stoke on the whole having languished deep in the bottom half of the league table for most of it, but having finally shown some positive signs in recent weeks they can enter the summer period with some optimism regarding what can be built going forward.
They're coming into this game amidst a decent run of form having won two and drawn two of their last four matches, having played four promotion contenders in that period.
Their most recent game saw them draw 0-0 at home to Norwich City, a decent point all things considered.
Their record away from home is pretty encouraging coming into this tie having won two and drawn one of their last three games on the road including a 5-1 win away at Sunderland.
Stoke were beaten 0-2 by Coventry when the two sides met back in October but they've improved markedly since then so should provide The Sky Blues with a much stiffer test.
The Potters don't have much to play for as they sit twelve points clear of the drop zone and twelve points shy of the play-off places but they're clearly not allowing that to affect their commitment to claiming results. They should, then, stand a decent point of getting a result here.
