Coventry vs Bournemouth –After a disappointing run of form, Bournemouth travel to Coventry City tomorrow. But with two wins in a row, the hosts have kept their playoff hopes alive.
After only one win in eight Championship games in recent months, Coventry’s remarkable season seemed over. It’s possible they’ll make the playoffs after thrilling wins over Fulham and Birmingham!
Mark Robins’ never-say-die attitude kicked in again after the Sky Blues’ fantastic 3-1 victory over league leaders Fulham five days earlier.
Avenging some poor set-piece defending, Robins’ men scored two quick goals from dead-ball situations just before half-time.
Michael Rose headed home Gustavo Hamer’s corner to give his side the lead for the first time in the game. Callum O’Hare scored the game’s only goal in the final minute of normal time.
With eight of the nine teams above them dropping points on Friday, Coventry moved up to ninth place ahead of tomorrow’s action, just three points behind the playoff places.
On Good Friday, the Cherries drew 0-0 with Middlesbrough, another contender for the Premier League. At Vitality Stadium, neither team scored many goals. A Jefferson Lerma header denied Scott Parker’s side, but they came close.
In fact, the second-placed team has only two points from the last nine games. Despite their missteps, they are still in pole position to return to the Premier League.
We are four points clear of Huddersfield Town and have two games in hand. Parker and his team will be eager to dispel any doubters and earn a vital three points tomorrow.
Coventry vs Bournemouth – Betting Analysis
They will make life difficult for Bournemouth tomorrow. At a difficult venue, we don’t expect the visitors to win again. Bournemouth’s goalless draw with Middlesbrough continued a trend. Not many good ideas in Middlesbrough’s last third.
