Team News: Coventry City
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just one fitness concern for the Coventry City manager Mark Robins to contend with due to a largely intact set of players. Tyler Walker (Hip Injury) won’t play.
Team News: Cardiff City
Thanks to a mainly available group of players, there’s only a single fitness issue for the Cardiff City manager Mick McCarthy to be concerned with. Joel Bagan (Shoulder Injury) won’t be in action.
In our view, Cardiff City might have a difficult job to breach the defence of this Coventry City team who we reckon will emerge victorious.
We’re therefore anticipating a highly competitive game with a 1-0 winning margin for Coventry City at the end of this one.
