The Sky Blues beat Colchester 1-0 last time out and if you fancy a repeat performance than you can get odds of 11/2 for the same score line to occur.

Clean sheets have been a foundation for the good form City currently find themselves having and if you fancy that run to keep going then you can get a tasty 5/2 for the Sky Blues to win to nil.

In the first goalscorers market Frank Nouble is the favourite to break the deadlock for City. He is 11/2 to bag first, with Simeon Jackson and Nick Proschwitz at 6/1 and just behind.

Further afield James Maddison is 14/1 to net first and get his first home goal for City. Jim O'Brien is 9/1 with Reda Johnson at 12/1.

For Oldham the main danger comes from Jonathon Forte. He is 6/1 to opening the scoring. Dominic Poleon scored a wonder goal on Saturday against Sheffield United and he is 9/1 to bag the first goal.

Remember that if you back a first goalscorer and the player does not play any part in the match then you are entitled to a refund.

It promises to be an interesting, tight, crucial game but I think that City will make it back to back wins, thanks to a familiar face finding the net.
