Sky Blues to win
Reading have the worst form in the league right now; they are coming off seven consecutive losses, and have no wins in their last 10 games. Although Coventry have not been doing too well lately, they've been relatively better than Reading. Mark Robin's men have three wins in their last seven games across all competitions. We would also like to point out that Coventry won two of the last three encounters between these teams; considering Reading's losing streak, we're predicting a win for Coventry.
Both teams to be amongst the goals
Both teams have a tendency to concede goals; only one team has conceded more goals than Reading this season, they've allowed almost 2 goals per game. It's been much worse recently, as Reading have allowed at least two goals in all of their last eight games; in fact, The Royals allowed 21 goals in their last six games alone, that's 3.5 goals per game. Conversely, Reading have scored their fair share of goals; they've scored eight goals in their last eight games. In like manner, Coventry have found it difficult to keep clean sheets recently; they've conceded in their last three, and nine of their last 11 games. With this in mind, both teams will likely concede.
