Preston – Coventry preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Preston vs Coventry lineups.

Preston

Preston’s struggles continued with a narrow defeat vs Hull last weekend. The Lilywhites were left fuming after this match as at 0-0 they thought they should have been awarded a penalty on two separate occasions. 

Preston are now winless in 7 (D3 L4) and the pressure on the manager is huge at the minute. 

The fact that the squad continues to be badly crippled is hardly helpful either. There are still 5 players out for the long term, among them is key midfielder McCann. To add to that top goalscorer Keane and two of the main defenders Cunningham and Hughes are deemed serious doubts. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Woodman (GK), Potts, Storey, Lindsay, Best, Whiteman, Ledson, Holmes, Browne, Millar & Osmajic 

Coventry

Coventry played a poor local derby vs WBA last weekend and deservedly lost 0-2 at home. Showed very shaky defending, especially when asked to deal with crosses. At the same time, offered very little punch in attack. 

The Sky Blues are in a bad run of form right now. Single point has been earned from their last 4 matches. All this is directly linked to the fact that none of the 3 main forwards in the squad has scored in the last 7 rounds. 

To add further pressure to the situation Coventry travel to Preston now, a place where the Sky Blues failed to win in all of their last 16 visits. 

Midfielders Palmer and Kelly, both regular starters when fit, remain in rehabilitation. Striker Tavares is also sidelined but there are no fresh issues. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Wilson (GK), Thomas, McFadzean, Kitching, Van Ewijk, Eccles, Sheaf, Dasilva, Allen, Sakamoto & Godden

​Player to Watch: Tatsuhiro Sakamoto

Coventry added the spped-merchant Tatsuhiro Sakamoto to their ranks in the summer hoping that he will be contributing goals. Sakamoto is yet to score despite being involved in 11 of the 14 games though. 

He is under duress to deliver and Coventry need his goals if they are to start climbing up the table. Can Sakamoto rise to the challenge and finally score his first goal on English soil?
