Coventry vs Bristol Rovers Prediction & Match Preview

Coventry vs Bristol Rovers
England – League One
Date: Sunday, 7th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Ricoh Arena (Coventry).

Coventry is six points off the last playoff spot, and as of now, realistically, the team has a chance to catch only Doncaster. With six games remaining in the competition, the squad will surely be targeting the 18 points on offer. Considering they are at home this Sunday and are taking on a relegation-battler, fans will be hoping for nothing but a win.

Bristol is living a dangerous life right now. They are just three points above the safety line, and a single match-day could put them into the pit. On top of that, they have secured just two points from the last four fixtures. But one thing to be specifically noted is the performance of the team on the road, which has been very good in recent games. The question remains though – How would they fare against a top-tier side like Coventry?

Coventry vs Bristol Rovers Prediction

Coventry needs this win to launch a formidable attempt at the playoff spots. Just six matches remain for them, and each one of those will be played with vigor. Their biggest motivations will be the facts that, the last three h2h games saw home wins, and only once has an away side recorded a victory – which was also Coventry. Moreover, at this venue, Coventry holds a 100% winning record.

They are also a top-tier team, at home, whereas Bristol is a relegation-battler, on the road. Coventry will win at least one half of this match without a doubt.

Furthermore, Bristol got their name on the scoresheet in 12 of their last 13 away ties, and their last three matches had both teams on the scorecard. In addition, four of the last five ties of Coventry had the same stat as well. Expect the same to happen this Sunday as well.
