These two sides have a rich history between them and like always this will be a very competitive match.

In their previous 6 games across all competitions, the Sky Blues have won 6 matches and lost only once. They are unbeaten in the league for the last 6 matches and have a 5 game win streak included in it. Over 2.5 goals came in 4 of the last 5 games that the team from Coventry played.

They have not lost a game in the last 3 home games in the league. In the previous 5 matches they played in front of their home crowd, they have 3 wins and 1 defeat. Under 2.5 goals came in the recent 6 home matches as well.

After completing 17 matches in the league Mark Robins’ team has 8 wins and 5 losses, which put them in the 8th position in the table.

The Posh are enjoying themselves and had already made their intentions clear from the first game this season. They are currently in the 3rd place with 10 wins in their 17 matches and are just 5 points below the toppers Portsmouth. The team coached by Steve Evans are the top scoring team with a total of 33 goals scored, but it came at a cost. They have also conceded 22 goals in return.

In their last 6 matches, they have 4 wins and 2 defeats in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of those 6 matches. They have lost only once in the last 7 games on the road, both in League and FA Cup. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 5 of the last 7 away matches. Evans’ team has only lost 1 game in their 7 away games in the league.

So with both the teams in good form we can expect this match to be tightly contested.
