Coventry vs Wycombe
English League One
Date: Saturday, 13 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Ricoh Arena (Coventry).
Coventry City will be hoping to back up last weekend’s win over Charlton Athletic when they take on Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday afternoon at Ricoh Arena. These two likes battled it out in the fourth tier of the English football last year.
They are both down in the bottom half of the standings after 12 rounds of the competition in the higher division. The Sky Blues are three points ahead in the league ladder and they will come into this in high spirits.
The hosts showed a tremendous fighting spirit to come back from behind and beat the Addicks through Amadou Bakayoko brace within the last ten minutes of the game at The Valley. The striker from Sierra Leone, who came on as a substitute against Charlton) could now earn a place in the starting line-up ahead of the Wycombe tie given he is team’s top scorer with three goals to his name so far in the season.
Coventry vs Wycombe: Head-to-head
Coventry City completely dominated the head to head match-up against the Chairboys.
The Sky Blues won each of five H2H games against Wycombe Wanderers.
Coventry notched two narrow wins by a single-goal margin over the Chairboys in the previous term of League Two.
Coventry vs Wycombe: Prediction
The visitors will also head into this high on confidence having clinched four points from last two league outings. They held Fleetwood Town to a 1-1 draw away at Highbury before beating the likes of Burton Albion 2-1 seven days ago.
Joe Jacobson and Adebayo Akinfenwa bagged goals to secure Wycombe’s second win of the campaign. They drew 6 and lost 4 of remaining ten games in the season. What’s eye-catching in particular is the Chairboys’ attacking mentality under Gareth Ainsworth.
All of last six games Wycombe played in all competitions saw goals at both ends. We thus have to see a huge value in backing such scenario to happen for the seventh time in a row at the odds of 1.90 here.
