            Sunderland vs Coventry City Preview, Tips & Stats

            Sunderland host Coventry City at the Stadium of Light this Saturday in a big weekend of Championship football. The hosts need a win to get back in the Play-off places, whereas Coventry need a win to try and get back into the top half of the table.

However, Delano Burgzorg scored in the second half to give Huddersfield the 2 - 1 win. The win evaded Sunderland again, this time against Millwall. Kevin Nisbet gave The Lions the lead just before halftime, and a point was only rescued with Jack Clarkes’s late penalty to grab a 1 - 1 draw for Sunderland.

            Sunderland were back to winning ways against West Brom. Daniel Ballard opened the scoring in the 70th minute and Dan Neil doubled the lead in the 84th minute.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Coventry have two wins, two draws and one loss.

            Haji Wright scored the only goal of the game in the 75th minute to give Coventry the 1 - 0 win over Plymouth Argyle. Next time out against Ipswich Town, George Hirst and Wes Burns gave Ipswich the early 2 - 0 lead. In fact, Coventry were only on the scoresheet through a 96th minute own goal from Brandon William as Ipwich won 2 - 1.

            Coventry bounced back against Birmingham. Callum O’Hare grabbed a brace against The Blues in a 2 - 0 win for Coventry. Wright was on the scoresheet again for Coventry just after halftime against Southampton despite Coventry having just 28% of the possession. However, Samuel Edozie equalised within 20 minutes as the game ended in a 1 - 1 draw.

            The most recent outing for Coventry was against Leeds. Crysencio Summerville gave Leeds the lead early in the second half but Bobby Thomas equalised for Coventry. Despite Leeds having 20 shots in comparison to Coventry’s seven shots, Coventry held on for the 1 - 1 draw.
