A return to more familiar territory has boosted confidence that Coventry City will kick-start their Championship campaign with victory over Preston North End on Wednesday evening.
Mark Robins’ men went into the week having played three games less than most of the division, so while there is some catching up to do, they have been chalked up as 23/20 favourites in the match betting to bag all three points in front of home supporters at the CBS Arena.
The Sky Blues will have to breach a resolute Preston defence which has yet to concede in the league this season, but with only one goal scored so far by Wednesday’s visitors, they have made the lowest scoring start in Championship history with a 1-0 victory at Luton standing out among five other 0-0 draws at the start of their campaign.
Something has to give this time however, as each of Coventry’s previous six competitive outings have featured goals from both sides, while the last three matches have produced five goals each.
Matt Godden’s brace against Hull City means he has now scored three of Coventry’s five league goals this season and with a goal in each of his last two matches, the number 24 is a popular 6/4 shot to bag a goal for the third consecutive match and those who fancy him to break the deadlock can snap up odds of 9/2.
Both teams scored in both encounters with Preston last season and as the match betting suggests a first win of the campaign is just around the corner, BoyleSports are offering a price boost on a Coventry win with both teams scoring again.
