Coventry City 8/11 to beat Peterborough in Friday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: Coventry City win

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

Looking to make an immediate return to winning ways when this weekend’s Championship fixtures open up, Coventry will host Peterborough on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Coventry would have been disappointed to have thrown away the lead at Millwall last weekend in their 1-1 draw, the mood in their camp should remain at a real high. After managing to extend on their Championship status with time to spare last season, the Blues have enjoyed a stellar opening run. Opening Friday’s fixtures sat only outside the automatic promotions spots due to their goal difference, Head Coach Mark Robins has seen his side gain plenty of praise. With some in their camp believing that they can be the Championship’s surprise package this year, Coventry have now lost just one of their last six second-tier matchups, a run that stems back to August 14th. Landing back-to-back wins against Cardiff and Middlesbrough when returning from the international break, the Blues should be smelling a chance here.

As for the visitors, managing to put in what was a season-best display last weekend as they landed a shock 3-0 romp against Birmingham on home soil, there is no doubt that Peterborough are desperate to build off of that momentum. However, tipped by many across the Championship to be hit with an immediate League One return, the Posh’ victory last weekend brought an end to their worrying four-match losing run. Knowing that they face a stern test when they make the trip to a high-flying Coventry on Friday night, Darren Ferguson will have a headache over his side’s extend problems on the road. Including a 6-2 drumming away at Bramall Lane when returning from September’s international break, Peterborough have lost each of their opening four away fixtures by an aggregate score of 13-3.
