Stoke vs Coventry
EFL Championship
Date: Saturday, 22 October 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Bet365 Stadium.

Oliver Rathbone’s early goal ended Stoke’s three-game unbeaten streak. However, they could be in for an easy evening as they will welcome relegation side Coventry, for an early kick-off.

Mark Robins’s side continues to underperform this season. However, recent victories against Cardiff and Middlesbrough have become a lifeline for them from being termed as the worst club in the Championship this season.

In their last league outing, they defeated Cardiff City by 1-0. Viktor Gyökeres’s first half goal helped them win their second game of this campaign.

Stoke’s form at the moment cannot be ignored they just defeated two top teams namely, Sheffield United and Preston in this month. Yet, most recently they fell to Rotherham by a narrow one-goal margin.

Even so, they led in that game by registering twelve shots on goal and have shown over the last few weeks that they are not a mediocre side anymore.

The recent resurgence the visitors are going through is because of their defensive performance. This is why they have kept three clean sheets in their last four matches. They have only lost once this month which was against Burnley.

Looking at the bottom five clubs of the table, the visitors have the best form as they have only lost once in their last five outings.

The hosts’ home form is looking very strange as they have lost three of their last five matches.
