Plymouth Argyle vs Coventry
English League One
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Home Park (Plymouth).
The Pilgrims earned a glimmer of hope after a dreadful and underwhelming campaign in this term of League One. They finally managed to claim back-to-back wins in the league to escape the rock-bottom of the standings and actually get just one point away from the safe zone. To make the run more impressive, they did it by bagging three goals past Oxford United and Southend United each.
Team’s top scorer Freddie Ladapo took his league tally to 12 as he found the back of the net for the first time in six games last weekend at Roots Hall Stadium. Plymouth were in charge from the very first whistle and they had a three-goal cushion by 73rd minute when left-winger Ruben Ramires scored his seventh goal of the campaign.
Can the hosts pick up a breakthrough victory to escape the danger area this Saturday against play-offs hopefuls Coventry City at Home Park?
Plymouth Argyle vs Coventry: Head-to-head
Outfits have six wins apiece coming into their 15th head to head encounter.
However, we must say the home court advantage played a big role in the history of H2H ties between these two likes.
Plymouth Argyle won 4, drew 1 and lost just 1 of 6 home games against the Sky Blues.
None of last four head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored.
Plymouth Argyle vs Coventry: Prediction
Coventry City took a disappointing return of one point from past two league matches against Scunthorpe United (2-1 loss on the road) and AFC Wimbledon (1-1 draw at home). The draw against the rock-bottomed AFC Wimbledon was especially painful. The team is now as many as eight points shy of top-six spots.
The host will come into the match as clear form favourites and we have to see the value in backing their win at 2.80 based on everything written above. Punters who’d like to go with safer options can chase the home win or draw double chance at 1.57.
