Coventry vs Stoke City in the Championship on Jan 25. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Coventry vs Stoke City in the Championship on Jan 25. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Suffering late heartbreak at home against QPR over the weekend, Coventry will be desperate to try and find some stability as they look to fully kick-start their Championship run.

Gaining a host of plaudits from across England's second-tier this season, the Sky Blues should at least be smelling the chance to make up some ground in the play-off chase here.

Eventually hit with an action-packed 3-2 defeat against Fulham on Saturday, Stoke have won just one of their previous five Championship contests and have the feel of a side seeking their own boost.

Kindly note that all information in this preview, including whether or not the event will take place, is subject to change due to Covid-19.

Over 2.5 goals

Two sides who found themselves involved in their own rollercoaster matchups over the weekend, neutrals from across the Championship will be hoping that Coventry vs Stoke City turns out to be another lively affair.

With Coventry claiming a thrilling 3-2 win when they faced off against the Potters last season, Tuesday's opponents do have a habit of producing fireworks when they meet.

In fact, with Coventry and Stoke seeing four of their last five meetings finish with over 2.5 goals, it should be highlighted that a similar outcome in midweek can be found priced at 10/11.

Coventry form, squad news, opinion

Spending the majority of last season battling it out at the foot of the Championship table, it is fair to say that few would have expected the way that Mark Robins' side came flying out the traps this time around.

Firmly mixing it in the play-off hunt only a few months ago, the Sky Blues have rather failed to keep up that same momentum, despite an eye-catching start to 2022.

While Coventry might have opened the New Year with back-to-back victories against relegation scrappers Derby and Peterborough, Tuesday's hosts have gained a reputation for their struggles on home soil.

Including a 2-1 defeat at the hands of QPR over the weekend, the one-time Huddersfield boss has seen his side win just a pair of their last eight matchups at the Coventry Building Society Arena, a run that stems back to October 2nd.

Now sat seven points adrift of the play-off places, Robins could be tempted to make some alterations here.

Recently recovering from a shoulder issue and making a cameo appearance off the bench against QPR, Martyn Waghorn could be in line to make his first start since the end of September.

Stoke City form, squad news, opinion

Also spending the majority of last season's campaign looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, Stoke find themselves in a very similar position to their midweek opponents.

Eventually falling to a 3-2 loss against leading promotion contenders Fulham over the weekend, Michael O'Neill's men have largely failed to build off of their November purple patch.

Sat just a single point and a single place above Coventry, the former Northern Ireland boss has seen his side win just a pair of their last eight Championship outings.

Simply looking to make up some ground when they travel to the Midlands here, Stoke should at least be boosted by their recent success on the road.

Including a 2-0 victory against QPR last month, the Potters have remarkably collected 12 points from just their last five showdowns away from the bet365 Stadium.

In terms of injury news, Stoke have confirmed that they look set to once again be without the likes of Josef Bursik, Nick Powell, Romaine Sawyers, Harry Souuar and Jordan Thompson here.

History

Although both sides might have spent time battling it out in the Premier League during the early 2000s, Coventry vs Stoke is a contest that has only taken place a few times over recent years.

With the duo dealing with some public issues behind the scenes, it is Coventry who hold the superior recent record against their play-off rivals.

Including a shock 2-1 FA Cup victory on the road four years ago, the Sky Blues have lost just one of their previous five meetings against Stoke across all competitions.

About the Venue

Left heartbroken back in 2013 after being forced out of the Ricoh and having to spend time ground sharing with the likes of Northampton and Birmingham, Coventry will simply be overwhelmed to have a permanent home again.

Finally announced ahead of the 2021/22 campaign that they would be returning to the newly named Coventry Building Society Arena, Mark Robins' side have really been backed by a vocal home support.

In fact, averaging almost 20,000 fans per home fixture so far this season, that is the seventh-highest gate return of any Championship outfit.

In terms of COVID-19 protocol in England, Vaccine Passports will be a requirement of entry and these regulations are set to be in place until the end of January at least.

Conclusion

Two sides who have their sights firmly set on mounting a charge for the play-offs in 2022, Coventry vs Stoke City could have the makings of a lively affair on Tuesday night.

Suffering late heartbreak at the hands of QPR over the weekend, Coventry will know that they need their vocal home support if they're to come past a Stoke side who have continued to shine on the road.

Mustering 12 points from their last five Championship matchups away from the bet365 Stadium, Michael O'Neill's side will be looking to lay down their own marker here.
