Coventry to Win

Coventry got their domestic campaign off to a flier with a win against Nottingham Forest at the weekend and the manner of their victory should arm them with the confidence they need to see Northampton off in the Carabao Cup. The Sky Blues scored twice in the final ten minutes to overturn a one-goal deficit against Forest and with their tails up, Coventry can harness home advantage again when League Two outfit Northampton visit on Wednesday.

Coventry to Win to Nil

Northampton’s lack of punch in the final third was a huge factor in their relegation from League One last term and the Cobblers’ problems in attack could see them fail to land a blow against Coventry. Northampton have failed to score in seven of their last 13 games on the road while City have kept ten clean sheets in their last 19 home assignments. With those records considered, we’re tipping Coventry to win to nil this week.

Over 1.5 Coventry Team Goals

Coventry struck two late goals to earn them three points at Nottingham Forest’s expense on Saturday – and that was the fifth time in six games on home turf where the Sky Blues beat the over 1.5 team goals line. We’re backing Coventry to notch at least twice again this week against a Northampton defence that conceded the third-highest number of goals on the road in League One last term.

Coventry vs Northampton: Match Preview

Coventry

Improvement is the name of the game for Coventry this season after the Sky Blues secured a solid 16th place finish in their first year back in the Championship last term. A lengthier run in the Carabao Cup would also be appreciated by the club’s supporters who haven’t seen their team make it past round two just once since 2009. There are big hopes this season for striker Viktor Gyökeres after the Swedish forward made his loan move from Brighton a permanent switch in the summer.

Northampton

February appointment Jon Brady couldn’t keep Northampton up last season though the ex-Brackley Town boss did manage to hold on to his job over the summer. The Cobblers have been yoyoing between the second and third-tier over the past five years and Northampton have exited the Carabao Cup after the first round in three of the last four seasons. Brady will be tasked with steadying the ship at Town following another tumultuous season in 2020/21.
