Coventry’s season has turned into chaos as they are at the bottom-most position in the league table. They will now host Preston this Wednesday at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Due to various issues, the league decided to postpone two fixtures for Coventry. Hence they are the only team in the league who have played two games fewer than all the other teams.

It is worth knowing that the Lilywhites are unbeaten in the league so far. The team is currently at the eighth position in the table with one win and five draws. Also they are the only team in the league who have kept three consecutive clean sheets.

Moreover, manager Ryan Lowe is full of optimism as they managed to draw against Cardiff City in their last league game. Steve Morison’s side managed to attempt 22 shots in that game, however failed to find the back of the net at least once.

The Lilywhites are showing excellent defensive performance in all their games this season. Going into this game, Coventry will find it extremely difficult to break the defensive line of the Lilywhites.
