Coventry City vs Hull City

, KO: 19:45 Apr 23, 2024, The Coventry Building Society Arena
Hull City

After just missing out on the FA Cup final, Coventry City return to Championship action as they host Hull City in a midweek fixture. Separated by just three points, there is little to separate both teams at the moment and seemingly evenly matched, they look set to cancel each other out.

Coventry City only just missed out on the FA Cup final after losing to Manchester United on penalties last Sunday. They had shown great fight to take the game into extra-time and penalties after being three goals down in the 58th minute but ultimately fell in the shootouts.

Although it was a disappointing exit, the result means Coventry City have now picked up just one win from their last five matches. They were beaten 3-0 by Birmingham in their previous Championship fixture and are eighth on the standings, nine points off the promotion playoff places.

A bit of positive for Coventry City is that they do some decent work at home having gone unbeaten in 11 of their last 13 Championship matches. Mark Robins’ men picked up a 2-1 victory over title chasers Leeds United in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Hull City are closer to the promotion playoff places as they sit three points above Coventry City and six off the top six. They have shown some good form lately and are unbeaten in eight of their last 10 matches.

The problem for Hull City is that they have been plagued by too many draws in recent weeks having battled to six stalemates in their last 10 matches. Liam Rosenior’s men head into Tuesday’s clash off the back of a 0-0 scoreline with Watford last time out in the Championship.

Hull City appear to do better on their travels and are unbeaten in seven of their last eight away matches. They have picked up five wins in that run but have played out two draws in their last four matches on the road.
