Boro to darken skies above Coventry

Sorry Coventry fans, you're rock bottom as it stands right now and we think you'll be staying there with a defeat on the way on Saturday. Don't get us wrong, Middlesbrough are not in a great run of form right now but they have notable won two of their last five matches. By contrast, Coventry have played a total of eight games this season and all they've mustered up is three draws. On top of that, three of the last four head to head clashes have seen Middlesbrough run out winners.

We will see goals

Next up we turn our attention to the total goals market and we are backing over 2.5 goals. Coventry have gone over the 2.5 threshold in three of their last five matches averaging 2.6 goals per game. Middlesbrough meanwhile have also seen three of their past five go over 2.5 goals; now, their average goals per game in that period is just 2.4 but when focussed on their away form that 2.4 over five games becomes 3.3 goals per game across three league matches. With that all weighed up, over is definitely the way to go.

A relegation six pointer?

It might only be October 1st but already the massive games are arriving in the Championship with Coventry and Middlesbrough due to throw down at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Saturday afternoon. Both sides have been in the English top flight since the formation of the Premier League but with the duo both sat in the second tiers bottom three, those days seem lightyears away from returning. In the here and now, this game could have significant ramifications come May should Coventry and Middlesbrough not edge out of danger soon.

Coventry have been up against it all season and their injury situation doesn't exactly help either. Liam Kelly, Michael Rose and Callum O'Hare are all out with injurie whilst Gustavo Hamer is suspended.

Coventry Predicted lineup – Wilson, Panzo, McFazdean, Doyle, Dabo, Allen, Sheaf, Palmer, Bidwell, Gyokeres, Godden

Middlesbrough are suffering from a 2021/22 hangover by the looks of it right now and they will be without a couple of players to make their task here a bit tougher as well. Chuba Akpom and Darragh Lenihan are both out.

Middlesbrough Predicted lineup – Steffen, Dijksteel, Fry, Clarke, Jones, Crooks, Howson, McGree, Giles, Muniz, Watmore
