BOYLESPORTS: Sky Blues Seek Double Over League Leaders

8 April 2022

A tricky away trip to the runaway leaders in the Championship is next up for Coventry City, but Fulham aren’t having it all their own way in the betting ahead of Sunday’s 3pm kick-off.

The finish line is in sight for Fulham who go into the weekend 11 points clear at the top of the table, but Coventry are not expected to be pushovers for the league leaders, who found themselves on the on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline when the sides met earlier this season at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

The Cottagers led 1-0 at half-time back in the early October meeting and back on home turf they have led in a league-high 13 matches going into the interval, but on Sunday they face a Coventry side who have won four matches this season when trailing at half-time, a feat bettered by no other Championship team this season.

So all is not lost even if the Sky Blues concede first and goals haven’t been lacking for Mark Robins’ men this season either. Ten of their 51 have incredibly come in second half stoppage time, so it may pay to watch until the final kick as Coventry seek their first double over Fulham since the 1947/48 season, although meetings between the pair since have been few and far between.

A juicy 50/1 is available on Coventry being behind at half-time and going on to win, while any win for the visitors with both teams to scoring is rated a 10/1 shot. Anyone brave enough to back a repeat 4-1 victory over Fulham meanwhile are being offered a huge price of 150/1.

Viktor Gyokeres took his Championship tally to 14 with his last-gasp equaliser against Blackburn last weekend and he also has shown a tendency to have the final say in matches, with six of his last seven goals turning out to be the last of the game. He is a 5/2 shot to score at any time at Craven Cottage, while anyone who fancies the Swedish striker to repeat his two-goal feat in the reverse fixture can snap up an attractive 16/1.
