Coventry City vs Birmingham City predictions and top betting tips
Birmingham City makes the short journey to Coventry for another match from the Championship. Both sides are going through a difficult period with Coventry City collecting seven points in their previous five matches while Birmingham City has collected five points in five matches.
Match result prediction: Coventry City to Win
For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Coventry City will earn all three points in this clash against Wayne Rooney's Birmingham City. Despite sitting below Birmingham in the table, Coventry City should be winning this match. Birmingham has been in awful form since the arrival of Wayne Rooney having collected just one win and two draws in his eight matches at the helm and they look all over the place when stepping out onto the pitch. Coventry, just like last season, has started this season poorly but has since picked dup a little bit of form having won two of their previous three matches, both to nil.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that the total number of goals in this clash will be 2.5 or more. Birmingham City has seen 2.5 goals or more scored in five of their previous six matches, and seven times in their previous ten matches. Coventry on the other hand is a bit tighter defensively but does have the firepower in attack to ensure they score goals. In Haji Wright and Ellis Simms, Coventry has two very good strikers with players like Ben Sheaf and Josh Eccles in midfield to back them up. Coventry are unbeaten in their previous six matches against Birmingham.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Coventry City
For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Coventry City will earn a 2-1 victory over Birmingham City. Coventry and Birmingham are currently both separated by just one point in the league table but Birmingham is very much trending downwards at this moment in time following the appointment of Wayne Rooney as manager while Coventry has collected seven points in their previous four matches, which does suggest something of an upturn in form after their bad start to the season.
