Coventry City hosts Peterborough United in round 9 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Friday, September 24th at Coventry Building Society Arena (Coventry)
Coventry City was once a tough middle peasant in the Premier League, having spent 34 years in a row in it (with different names of this league). But having left the elite division exactly 20 years ago, the Sky-Blues could not return there in any way. And often they were not even close to it. The last draw brought only 16th place. But in the current Championship, Coventry has already scored 16 points in eight rounds, and only the sole leader Bournemouth has more. In September, the Sky-Blues beat Middlesbrough and Cardiff with clean sheets, but it happened at home. Away matches are more difficult for them, and this was proven on Saturday, when the voyage to Millwall brought only a 1-1 draw.

Peterborough is the team of Darren Fergusson. The son of Sir Alex has been working here since 2007, and he started as a playing coach. The Scotsman left for Preston and Doncaster but still took up his usual post. But so far, only promotion to the Championship can be considered an achievement. The Posh managed to do it at the end of last season, when they were ranked 2nd in League 1. But nothing really has changed now: once again, Peterborough is among the outsiders of a stronger division. There was a good segment in mid-August with a victory over Derby County and a draw against Cardiff. But they were followed by four defeats in a row, including 2-6 against Sheffield United. Only in the last round was Peterborough finally able to please its fans. Moreover, the Posh confidently hammered Birmingham (3-0). Obviously, the opponent was knocked down by an own goal already in the 1st minute! And Clark-Harris got the right to a penalty half an hour later.
So far, Coventry has a streak of five unbeaten head-to-head matches (two victories and three draws). But those games took place at the level of League 1, and the last one was two years ago, in the fall of 2019. Now Coventry has all the conditions to win, as it will at home against a weak opponent. We recommend betting on the victory of the Sky-Blues.
Prediction for the match: Coventry to win
