Coventry City vs Leicester City

, KO: 12:30 Jan 13, 2024, The Coventry Building Society
Leicester City

Leicester City continue their pursuit of automatic promotion they travel to Coventry City for a Championship fixture on Saturday. Leicester have been the team to beat this season and although Coventry have shown some good form lately, the Foxes should have the upper hand here.

Coventry City head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 6-2 victory over Oxford United in an FA Cup third round fixture. Matt Godden netted a brace while Ben Sheaf, Kasey Palmer and Joel Latibeaudere were all on target.

That result is an extension of Coventry City’s recent good form as they have only lost once in their last 12 matches across all competitions. They have been on the rise in recent weeks and are now ninth on the standings, just three points off the promotion places.

A strange thing about Coventry City's campaign is that they appear to do better on their travels. Mark Robbins’ men have picked up just three wins in their last eight Championship home matches and were held 2-2 by Swansea City in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Leicester City are showing no signs of slowing down as they look to lock up automatic promotion soon. They last tasted defeat in any competition back in November and are now 10 points clear at the top of the Championship standings.

Things have been so good for Leicester City in recent weeks that they have claimed eight wins in their last nine matches. Among their results in that run is a 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town in their previous Championship fixture, with Stephy Mavididi among the goals.

Leicester City have also impressed on their travels and are unbeaten in their last five away matches across all competitions. Enzo Maresca’s men have picked up four wins in that run, including a 3-2 victory at Millwall in their FA Cup third round clash last weekend.
