The controversy surrounding the sale of Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena rumbles on and the supporters will doubtless be hankering after their long-gone Highfield Road, a stadium which they could at least call their very own. Nevertheless the Sky Blues will be focusing on their march up the divisions and following their rise from League Two via the play-offs at the end of last season, the Midlands side will be aiming to make it a two promotions on the bounce into the Championship, something which isn’t looking too likely at the moment. As things stand, Coventry have been a bit of a mixed bag this term and they sit in 14th position following a mixed set of results, hardly promotion material. The Sky Blues have managed just four wins in their twelve league outings so far but they head into this weekend’s match on the back of a 2-1 win at Charlton Athletic and a midweek Checkatrade Trophy penalty shoot-out win at home to Forest Green Rovers, therefore confidence will be high in the home camp, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Coventry City v Wycombe Wanderers.
The visitors sit three points below Coventry City in the League One table as things stand and theirs has also been an inconsistent season thus far, the Wanderers winning two and drawing six of their league games. They have picked things up slightly of late with four points collected from their last two outings – courtesy of a 1-1 draw at Fleetwood Town and a 2-1 win at home to Burton Albion – however they can’t be relied upon to deliver the goods this weekend. Indeed we can’t bring ourselves to back either side with any confidence and instead we’ll be looking elsewhere for some value. Both Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers have bene very much amongst the goals recently with City’s last nine outings producing twenty goals and Wycombe’s last six averaging four in each, therefore we’ll be backing this trend to continue at the Ricoh Arena this weekend with BetVictor Bookmakers going 31/10 on Over 3.5 Total Goals.
