19:45, Sep 24 2021
Coventry City vs Peterborough prediction for Friday’s English Championship round nine showdown at Coventry Building Society Arena in Coventry. Fourth-placed Coventry host Peterborough who are 21st on the English Championship table of season 2021/22. You can follow our preview free prediction and betting tips on this page.

Coventry City find themselves in a very good position

After their best eight-match start in any division since 1992/93, Coventry find themselves firmly in a promotion spot. In fact, The Sky Blues have 10 and 11 more points than the previous two seasons at this stage. Moreover, Coventry’s defense is their main strength this season as they are ranked joint best with leaders Bournemouth.

However, if manager Mark Robbins can improve his team’s scoring performance, they can be a true promotion contender. Notably, Coventry’s attack scored nine goals in eight games, the fewest among the top 14 teams. If they keep this form, Coventry will be on course for their third promotion in five years under Mark Robbins.

Coventry Key points

  • Coventry had two clean sheets in their last two home matches
  • The number of goals conceded by Coventry at home this season is 0.5
  • Robins’ team scored in all of their home games this season

Peterborough looking for their first away win

Before the start of the 2021/22 Championship season, Peterborough were candidates to battle for relegation. Now that they played eight matches, that prediction is sadly justified as they gathered just seven points. Moreover, only Derby County’s 12 points deduction kept Peterborough out of the bottom three.

Peterborough had a horrible four-match losing streak during which the visitors conceded 11 goals and scored three. That followed an emphatic 3-0 win over Birmingham in their last league outing. Furthermore, new coach Farren Robinson will try to get The Posh to secure their first away win of the season.

Peterborough Key points

  • Peterborough lost all of their last four away games
  • The last three games of Peterborough saw three or more goals 
  • In three of their eight games, Peterborough failed to score

Coventry City vs Peterborough United Prediction

Coventry come into this match thinking that the three points are up for grabs. Also, the bookies are favoring them to win with odds of 1.67 at Vbet. Furthermore, undefeated at home in the league this season, Robins and his team have a case to feel confident.

In contrast, Peterborough are winless on the road this season and desperately need any point from this one. However, just one draw in their last six visits to Coventry is not encouraging. Although they would settle for a draw as they did in their last visit in 2018.

To conclude, if we look at four of their last five h2h there were under 3.5 goals. Also, the bookies are favoring a low-scoring match. Thus we will choose a combo bet from Vbet of double chance and total goals.
