Coventry recorded an enormous victory in the week as they beat Sheffield United. Can they follow that up against another team that don the red and white stripes? Find out with our Stoke vs Coventry match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

The Sky will be Blue over Stoke

We kick off our predictions for this match by backing Coventry to win. The Sky Blues are in good form at the moment having won each of their last two games and losing just one of their past five. Stoke aren't in terrible form themselves but two defeats in their last five games and just two wins as well isn't exactly the record of a team sparkling. If that leaves the two sides broadly level pegged then the head to head record swings things in Coventry's favour as they've beaten Stoke in three of the last five meetings whilst they haven't lost to Stoke since 2008.

A low scoring match

Our next prediction for this game comes from the total goals market and we are backing under 2.5 goals. Stoke have gone under the 2.5 marker in three of their last five matches including in each of their last two. Coventry meanwhile have seen each of their last five go south of that 2.5 cut off. You can look further back than the last five games though without blowing our low scoring prediction out of the water. The season is 15 games old for Stoke with their average goals per game coming in at 2.3 per match. Coventry have played a dozen matches this season with a game average of just 2.0 per game. The last two head to head meetings have gone south of the all important 2.5 mark.

Here are the key stats & form guide for Stoke vs Coventry

Can Coventry escape the bottom three?

For a long time now Coventry's survival hopes have been ridiculed but their position has looked a lot worse than reality owing to the number of games they've had to cancel. When you now factor in their games in hand, things look quite good given that they're no longer bottom and, in fact, a win here could move them out of the bottom three. Stoke though are only five points above the relegation spots meaning that a loss could start to make them peer over their shoulder a little.

Stoke arrive here with a couple of longer term injuries still to be resolved; that rules Gavin Kilkenny and Harry Souttar out. With Lewis Baker in good form though, they'll still be confident of getting a result.

Stoke Predicted lineup – Bursik, Wilmot, Fox, Jagielka, Sterling, Fosu, Baker, Laurent, Gayle, Campbell, Delap

Coventry are buzzing right now after a couple of wins on the spin. The good news might keep drip feeding in as well because there is a chance Liam Kelly is back in full training before this match.

Coventry Predicted lineup – Wilson, Panzo, McFazdean, Rose, Dabo, Sheaf, Eccles, Allen, Bidwell, Godden, Gyokeres
