Coventry vs Reading Prediction & Match Preview

Coventry City vs Reading
English Championship
Date: Friday, 30 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK

Even though everyone expected their decline in form and results, Reading FC keep marching on.

The Royals are sitting lonely at the top with 22 points from eight games, so their confidence is surely going through the rough ahead of Friday’s clash in Birmingham against Coventry City.

The Sky Blues have returned to the Championship last season, but it’s more than obvious they will have a lot of troubles keeping that membership ticket. The visitors are warm favorites for the win at 8/5 odds.

Coventry City vs Reading Prediction

Coventry City had a decent season opening where they collected four points in the opening three clashes. The only victory so far came at this stadium against Queens Park Rangers 3-2 FT.

However, since the draw against Barnsley everything went downhill. The Sky Blues got defeated in four out of the last five Championship games, having awful 2-12 goal difference.

Coach Mark Robins is surely furious after his team lost two duels in the last seven days to Middlesbrough and Blackburn Rovers without scoring one single goal. They are 21st on the table, just one point above the red line.

Reading just keeps on impressing everyone. The Royals are playing wonderful football, with great form in the back where they kept a lot of clean sheets. The only exception was mid-week clash against Blackburn where they conceded two, but also scored four times. We feel that away win draw no bet is the best option for this match.
