Wigan to grab a minimum of a point

Although Coventry are the favourites to win this match, their recent form doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. It's worth noting that Coventry have no wins in three matches so far this season; in fact, Mark Robins' men have lost back-to-back games, conceding seven goals in the process. Wigan have done relatively better than Coventry recently; they've drawn three from three league games so far. Also, Wigan suffered just one loss in their last nine matches in all competitions. Considering Coventry's recent struggles, coupled with Wigan's draw streak, we believe that this match will end in a draw; however, looking at the odds offered here, we would like to cover Wigan as well.

Both teams will score

We've mentioned that Coventry allowed seven goals in their last two games alone; they have seen their defence breached in seven of their last nine games, including their last three. Conversely, Coventry have consistently scored goals these past few months; they found the back of the net in all of their last nine matches. We should also point out that Wigan registered 19 goals in their last 10 games; they kept just one clean sheet in their last five matches. Both teams scored in nine of Coventry's last 11, and in three of Wigan's last five games. On that note, both teams will likely score.

Will either side find a way to win their first game of the campaign?

Coventry City nor Wigan Athletic have have managed to win to this point but there is one key difference between the way they've started the campaign, which is that Wigan haven't lost either meaning they're in midtable whilst Coventry's slow start sees them in the relegation zone.

Coventry are coming off consecutive losses against Bristol City and Millwall; they have no wins in three games played so far this season. Worse still, Coventry will be without a red-carded Gustavo Hamer, who had the most assists for the club last season; can they get back to winning ways?

Coventry City Predicted lineup – Moore, Hyam, McFadzean, Panzo, Eccles, Allen, Sheaf, Tavarez, Bidwell, Godden, Gyökeres

Wigan's winless streak continued with yet another draw against Bristol City; they've now drawn three from three league games so far. Wigan will pay a visit to the Coventry Building Society Arena; they'll hope to get their first win of the season today.

Wigan Athletic Predicted lineup – Amos, Darikwa, Kerr, Tilt, Bennett, Power, Naylor, Lang, Keane, McClean, Magennis
