Today's Betting Tips for Coventry vs Cardiff

Coventry are aiming to make home advantage count again when they host struggling Cardiff in the Championship on Thursday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Coventry to Win

Coventry were beaten at Sheffield United on Boxing Day, however, the Sky Blues are a more formidable outfit on home soil and we’re tipping City to bounce back with a win at the first time of asking when they host relegation candidates Cardiff on Thursday. Coventry have claimed 13 points from the last 15 on offer on their own patch and their ability to dig out results at The Coventry Building Society Arena should stand them in good stead again against the struggling Bluebirds.

Both Teams to Score – No

Alongside picking up plenty of positive results at home, Coventry have been impressively mean from a defensive standpoint and each of the four victories secured by the Sky Blues in their last five home assignments was accompanied by a clean sheet. Coventry also shut out Cardiff when the teams met in Wales back in October (1-0) and they are well-drilled enough to keep them at arm’s length again in Thursday’s do-over. With that in mind, bettors would be wise to back both teams NOT to score this week.

Coventry vs Cardiff Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Thursday’s Championship meeting between Coventry and Cardiff below.

Coventry

Kyle McFadzean is still missing at the back for Coventry, while Marcel Hilßner is listed as an absentee in midfield. City's attacking options are lightened by the absence of Tyler Walker and Matt Godden. The Sky Blues are still handily placed in 11th spot despite their 3-1 reverse at Sheffield United on Boxing Day.

Predicted Lineup for Coventry: Wilson – Rose, Doyle, Panzo – Burroughs, Hamer, Sheaf, Bidwell – Allen, O'Hare – Gyokeres

Cardiff

Attacker Isaak Davies is still in the treatment room for Cardiff, though beyond the forward, injuries are few and far between for the Bluebirds. City drew for the third time on the spin when they held QPR to a 0-0 draw on Boxing Day. Cardiff remain just two points clear of the drop zone in the Championship, however.

Predicted Lineup for Cardiff: Allsop – Romero, Ng, Kipre, O'Dowda – Wingle, Ralls, Philogene, Robinson, Colwill – Etete

Player to Watch – Gustavo Hamer

Gustavo Hamer lodged his third Championship assist of the campaign against Sheffield United on Boxing Day and the 25-year-old Dutchman has now hit seven goal contributions in 16 starts for Coventry this term. Hamer is a reliable source of match-changing moments for City and the former PEC Zwolle star could do some more damage against Cardiff on Thursday.
