For our Coventry vs. Sunderland prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
Coventry City are looking to continue their impressive form as they face Sunderland in the Championship this weekend.
Coventry City currently sit 11th in the Championship with twelve wins, nine draws and eleven losses from thirty-two games this season.
The Sky Blues have had a mixed season this time around but improved notably after a slow start and they now find themselves in a position to make a late play-off run entering the final stretch of the campaign.
They enter this game amidst a strong run of overall form having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five matches in all competitions, the most recent of which was a 2-0 win away at Rotherham United.
The win at Rotherham was an efficient, professional performance against a side that have made a habit of picking up big results recently.
Coventry's home record has been strong of late, too, having won two and drawn one of their last three games on home soil.
The Sky Blues have been outstanding defensively of late, having conceded just two goals in their last five matches.
Coventry are only five points shy of the play-off spots and if they remain around this distance from the top six they could easily make a late surge and finish in the top six. If they are to do that then they must win home games against fellow contenders like Sunderland, so this will stand as a solid litmus test vis-a-vis their level.
Sunderland are currently 8th in the Championship with thirteen wins, ten draws and ten losses from thirty-three games this season.
The Black Cats have had a fine season back in England's second tier following promotion from League One last season as they stand a significant chance of reaching the play-offs with just thirteen games remaining.
They enter this game amidst a decent but unremarkable run of form having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last six matches in the league.
Most recently, Sunderland fell to a disappointing defeat away at Rotherham United as they were downed 2-1.
Their away form is fairly solid having lost only one of their last five games on the road, so there's still plenty of reasons to be optimistic about an immediate response.
The two sides drew 1-1 on the opening day of the season and we could be in for a similarly close game here with both sides gunning for the same fate.
