Coventry to edge to victory

We kick off our predictions by backing Coventry to collect their third win of the campaign. The hosts general form has seen them lose three of their past five games but at home it swings the other way with three wins in five. Reading meanwhile are in atrocious form on the road. They've not won in seven away games and have lost the past two. On top of that, Coventry is not a place where they've enjoyed too much success recently; they've failed to win in the last three visits.

A few goals will hit the net

Coventry's last couple of games might have been 1-0 but that doesn't tell the whole picture because three of their last five competitive games have gone beyond the 2.5 mark. In fact, their game average for total goals in that time sits at 3.0. Reading meanwhile have seen each of their last five matches go over 2.5. Their game average is much higher too at 4.0. With both meetings between Coventry and Reading seeing a minimum of three goals last season, the odds offer great value.

Both teams to contribute goals

Right, we've already covered off the fact we think there will be a few goals in this match. Now we take our prediction slightly further and say that both teams will net in the game. Reading have seen both sides on the scoresheet in four of their last five matches with Coventry seeing a ‘nil' in their score line just twice in their last five.

Reading to suffer another league loss

Let's cut to the chase shall we? Reading are scoring plenty of goals; in fact they have netted twice as many as Coventry but they're simply shipping too many at the other end. The seven they've conceded is the joint worst in the league and needs to be addressed sharpish; it's something they should be able to organise with an experienced centre back pairing. For Coventry, they have no such trouble; they've only conceded two goals so far this season so will be confident of managing the threat Reading bring.
