Burnley vs Coventry prediction
- Title : Burnley vs Coventry prediction
3 draws in a row historically, but history don't always repeat itself, right?
Seven days on from their 4-3 home humbling to the promotion-chasing National League club, Mark Robins takes his Sky Blues to Turf Moor – where Burnley have won eight on the bounce.
It looks like a big ask for Coventry with an 3-4-5 on away soil, to halt a four-game winless run in Lancashire, but they could eventually grab a goal in an entertaining game.
Coventry have scored in all five away games against current top-8 teams, including a Sheffield United side in possession of the best defensive record in the division, and they showed plenty of potency in hitting three against Wrexham.
- -Burnley have won with both teams scoring in three of their last five home Championship fixtures
-Burnley have scored 3 goals last 5 games at home
- -Coventry have scored in four of their last five away league games
- -The Sky Blues have scored in all five away games against current top-8 sides.
Furthermore, Clarets boss Vincent Kompany is sweating over the fitness of defender Taylor Harwood-Bellis, who was substituted in the first half of their cup win over Bournemouth and later seen wearing a protective boot.
The Manchester City loanee has been an ever-present in the league this term and his loss would be a blow.
Burnley, with an 9-4-0 at home, should continue to set the Championship pace with a win over an out-of-form Coventry team still smarting from their FA Cup exit to non-league Wrexham.
