BOYLESPORTS: Preview as the Sky Blues face Wrexham in the FA Cup

6 January 2023

The FA Cup takes centre stage this weekend with Coventry City hoping to get their name in the hat for the fourth-round draw at the expense of National League opposition.

And our partners at BoyleSports have a tasty football betting offer for Sky Blues fans ahead of the 5.30pm kick-off at home on Saturday!

It took Premier League opposition and extra-time to dash Coventry’s dreams in last season’s competition as Southampton came from behind in a fourth-round tie on the south coast before going on a run to the quarter-finals.

A former Saints trainee is in the opposing dugout on Saturday as Phil Parkinson leads out a Welsh side who boast one of the most famous FA Cup giant-killings of all time, a third-round slaying of top-flight Arsenal in 1992.

Wrexham are also flying high this season just two points behind National League leaders Notts County, but they face third-round opponents with a rich FA Cup history of their own, and the 1987 winners are hot favourites to back up their strong league form by securing passage into the last 32.

With five goals in the early rounds, Saturday’s fifth-tier visitors arrive with the top scorer in the competition to date in Paul Mullin, but Mark Robins’ side have a potent goal threat of their own, with only one player in the Championship sporting a better return than the 12 bagged so far this season by prolific Swede Viktor Gyokeres.

If Mullin is to add to his tally, he will also have to breach a Coventry defence with a record bettered only by the top two in the Championship. Can they keep the Red Dragons at bay?
