Coventry vs Chesterfield by Hassy

Amongst all the European action tonight it seems our punters are missing out on a value trade tonight so I thought I would share it. Both Coventry City and Chesterfield have under-performed this season, with the Spirites currently sitting in the League One relegation zone. Following a poor run of results at the start of the League One season, which saw the City squad hammered to the bottom of League One table in early October The Cov fans were fearing the worst. However, after Coventry City parted ways with former manager Tony Mowbray the Sky Blues have seen their fortunes revived in recent weeks as they’ve started to climb the table. A run of three wins, a draw and a solitary defeat adds up to ten out of possible fifteen points collected from the last five domestic games. Coventry had failed to win any of their first 10 league matches of this new campaign under Mowbray so the turnaround has been remarkable. Despite the early terrible run, Coventry’s home record now reads two wins and five draws with only first placed Scunthorpe United and third placed Bradford City also remaining undefeated at home in the division. It is also worth noting that the Sky Blues are actually undefeated in their last ten at the Ricoh Arena.


Coventry midfielder Andy Rose is expected to be fit Chris McCann's hamstring tear will keep him on the sidelines along with Vladimir Gadzhev, who is set to see a specialist about his knee problem. Striker Kwame Thomas (groin) and defender Chris Stokes (knee) are still injured and are not available for selection.


While Coventry are a side growing in confidence, Chesterfield are struggling and five straight defeats without a single goal scored have seen them slump into the bottom four. In addition to losing their last five they are winless in 7. They also sit bottom of the away league table with only 2 points from seven away games.


On-loan central defender Tom Anderson will be available again after a one-match ban and Blues boss Danny Wilson must decide whether he goes straight back into the team or if Ian Evatt, recalled on Saturday, keeps his place. One or two Spireites are nursing knocks after the defeat at Charlton but Wilson hopes there will be no more new injury absentees.


Right-back Paul McGinn (hamstring), striker Conor Wilkinson (knee), midfielder Angel Martinez (knee) and goalkeeper Tommy Lee (shoulder) remain out.


Despite their poor league placing The Sky Blues are definitely on an upward trajectory and their home form is also good. They go into the game on the back of three straight wins and it really is hard not to back them for another win tonight. The head-to-head record doesn’t make good reading if you’re a Chesterfield fan either. Tuesday’s visitors have never registered a victory in this fixture, while Coventry have won two meetings and I will tip them to make it hat trick of wins on the bounce.
