Coventry City will be looking to maintain their 100% home record when they host Derby County in a Championship fixture at the Coventry Building Society Arena. Derby are enduring a difficult campaign and should struggle against Coventry.

Coventry City suffered a 2-1 defeat at Preston North End in midweek. They took the lead right before the break through Tyler Walker but were pegged back in the second half.

It was the second straight match without a win for Coventry City, who were held to a 2-2 draw at Blackburn in their previous fixture. Mark Robins' men are currently fourth on the table, two points behind Fulham in second place.

The good news for Coventry City is they are returning to the Coventry Building Society Arena after playing on the road in their last two matches. They have a 100% record on their own turf and claimed a 4-1 victory over Fulham in their previous home fixture.

Derby County were held to a 2-2 home draw against Luton Town last time out in the Championship. They twice took the lead through Tom Lawrence and Jason Knight but failed to hold on and were pegged back both times.

Wayne Rooney’s men are attempting to kick-start their season after being docked points for going into administration. They are currently bottom of the standings with just four points, seven from safety.

Away from their off-field problems, results on the pitch have not been impressive for Derby County, who have claimed just three wins from 13 matches this season. They are also winless in their last four away matches, failing to score in all four fixtures.

How the bookies view it

Coventry City have the upper hand among the bookies at 14/19 with Sport Nation while an unlikely victory for Derby County is priced at 5/1 by Betfred. SBK is offering odds of 45/17 for a draw.

Head to head

There have been 61 previous matches between Coventry City and Derby County with both teams claiming 22 wins each and 17 draws. Coventry claimed a 1-0 victory in the corresponding fixture back in March.

Players to watch

Striker Viktor Gyokeres is the top scorer for Coventry City this season with nine goals and will be the one to watch on Saturday. The Swede is priced at 6/4 by Paddy Power to score anytime.

Given Derby County’s scoring problems on the road, Coventry City will be confident of a shutout on Sunday. They have kept clean sheets in three of their last four home matches and with Kyle McFadzean and Dominic Hyam featuring in defence, will be targeting a repeat at 6/5 with Skybet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Given Coventry City’s impressive home form, they could be backed in the -1 handicap market at 2/1 with Skybet. Their solid defensive record could also see them earn a win to nil at 13/8 with bet365.

All of Coventry City's goals in their last two home matches have come after the break, so the second half could be tipped as the highest scoring half at 11/10 with betfair.
