Coventry Backed To Inflict First Cardiff Defeat On Mick McCarthy
Coventry take on Cardiff with Mick McCarthy’s team starting to drift for victory on home soil.
Cardiff are unbeaten in all four Championship matches under new their boss, winning two and drawing two. However, McCarthy has confirmed new signing Jonny Williams and Alex Smithies will be unavailable for the hosts, with support for a home win beginning to dry up.
We have pushed Cardiff out to 11/10 from 10/11 as punters start to get behind the Sky Blues,
…who are looking to complete their first league double over The Bluebirds since the 1965/66 season.
They are now 13/5 from 14/5 to do so, while a draw is also a popular choice at 23/10. A repeat of the 2-2 scoreline from the last time Cardiff hosted Coventry in a league match in 2012 is 16/1 from 20/1.
Coventry could pull six points clear of the drop zone with a victory, but three points for Cardiff could see them make significant ground in the top six race with the Welsh side currently 9/2 to be promoted.
