PREVIEW: Sky Blues head to Home Park on Valentine's Day

City take on Plymouth Argyle on Wednesday night...

14 February 2024

The Sky Blues play make the trip to Home Park on Valentine's Day to take on Plymouth Argyle in the Sky Bet Championship (7:45pm).

Meet the Pilgrims

Plymouth Argyle return to Championship action at Home Park for the first time since January 20th and they head into it off the back of defeat last time out at the Stadium of Light.

Argyle's first season back in the Championship has seen them defy expectations so far, with the bookmakers starting the season with the Pilgrims second favourites to be relegated back to League One.

Currently sitting 15th, seven points above the drop, it has been their home form and Morgan Whittaker's 16 league goals, which have proved pivotal so far this season.

Argyle have lost just three of their 14 home games in the Championship this season, making Home Park a difficult place to go for opposition sides.

All of this coincides with a change of manager midway through the season, after Steven Schumacher departing for Stoke City and Ian Foster coming in as his replacement.

 

Sky Blues' last six:

  • Coventry City 2-1 Millwall
  • Coventry City 4-1 Sheffield Wednesday
  • Norwich City 2-1 Coventry City
  • Coventry City 2-2 Bristol City
  • Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Sky Blues
  • Sheffield Wednesday 1-2 Sky Blues

Plymouth Argyle's last six:

  • Sunderland 3-1 Plymouth Argyle
  • Plymouth Argyle 1-4 Leeds United
  • Swansea City 0-1 Plymouth Argyle
  • Leeds United 1-1 Plymouth Argyle
