Coventry take on Birmingham in the Championship on Friday. Both teams have been in poor form as they go into the strange scenario of both playing at their home ground in the same league game.

Coventry Form


Coventry are floating just above the relegation zone coming into the weekend, sitting just a point above the bottom three.

They have lost four of their last five games coming into this clash, starting with defeats to Blackburn and Middlesbrough. They then picked up a shock 3-2 win over Reading.

The Sky Blues have since gone on to lose 2-1 against Nottingham Forest and 3-2 to Watford away from home.

Coventry were leading 2-1 with 25 minutes to go before conceding twice in the closing stages of the game against Watford.

Coventry Team News


Coventry will be without Jordan Shipley, Fankaty Dabo, Wesley Jobello and Jodi Jones through injury.

Birmingham Form


Birmingham have had a mixed bag of results of late, winning two and losing two of their last four Championship matches.

Aitor Karanka’s team had won back-to-back games before their recent losing run. The victories came against Huddersfield and Preston.

Since then, Blues have lost consecutive home games against Wycombe and Bournemouth heading into the international break.

Birmingham lost 3-1 against Bournemouth last time out as Scott Hogan scored his first goal of the season for the hosts.

Birmingham Team News


Midfielder Adam Clayton is missing with a knee injury. Striker Scott Hogan should start again after netting his first goal of the season against Bournemouth.

Verdict

There isn’t much to separate these two sides, while the factor of the game being played at St. Andrew’s takes away any home advantage for Coventry. 

BTTS is a regular feature of both of their matches and I’m backing a draw.
