Coventry City vs Maidstone United

, KO: 19:45 Feb 26, 2024, The Coventry Building Society Arena
Maidstone United

Coventry City continue their FA Cup campaign as they host Maidstone United in a third round clash on Monday. The Championship side have shown some good form lately and should have too much quality for their lower league visitors.

Coventry City reached this stage of the competition after claiming a 4-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday in a replay. Both teams battled to a 1-1 draw in the first meeting before goals from Callum O’Hare, Kasey Palmer and Haji Wright gave them the win in the second clash.

Although Coventry City suffered a 3-0 Championship defeat to Preston North End last Friday, they will consider it a minor blip having been in good form lately. Mark Robbins' men had claimed three wins and a draw from the four matches preceding the clash with Preston.

Another thing that will give Coventry City plenty of confidence on Monday is their home form having lost just once in the last 12 matches in front of their fans. There have been a few one-sided results in that run, like the 4-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday in the previous round of the FA Cup.

Maidstone United did some giant killing in the previous round as they knocked out Championship high-fliers. Goals from Lamar Reynolds and Samuel Corne earned them a 2-1 victory.

That win is part of a good run of form for Maidstone, who have lost just once in their last seven matches across all competitions. However, that defeat came in their previous National League fixture as they were beaten 2-0 at Aveley.

While things appear generally good for Maidstone United, the defeat to Aveley highlights a poor record on their travels. George Elokobi’s men have picked up just one win from their last eight away matches, suffering six defeats in that run.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have installed Coventry City as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 1/7 by Coral. A victory for Maidstone United is priced at 20/1 by Coral while a draw is set at 17/2 by Coral.

Head to head

This will be the first ever meeting between Coventry City and Maidstone.

Players to watch

Haji Wright has caught the eye for Coventry City in recent weeks, scoring three goals in the last three home matches. The forward was also on target in the previous round and is priced at 17/20 by William Hill to get on the score sheet once again.

Lamar Reynolds was on target in the previous round and could be worth keeping an eye on for Maidstone United. He is expected to feature in attack and is priced at 11/2 by bet365 to find the net once again.

Anything else catch the eye?

Given the result in the previous round, Coventry City could be backed in the -2 handicap market at 20/21 with bet365. The hosts are priced at minimal odds for a straight victory, so a win and both teams to score could be considered at 7/5 with BoyleSports.

Coventry City saw more goals after the break in the previous round and a similar outcome is priced at evens with bet365.
