Coventry City were pretty unlucky in their season opener as the Sky Blues narrowly missed out on a result, going down 2-1 in a late defeat to Leicester City on Sunday.
Despite taking an early lead and playing some decent football two late Leicester goals put pay to any sort of result.
The Sky Blues might feel the impact of losing their top scorer Viktor Gyokeres, who netted 21 goals last season, to Sporting Lisbon as the season progresses.
On a brighter note for Coventry supporters, striker Matty Godden recently signed a contract extension that will see him stay until the close of the 2024/25 season.
Middlesbrough is recovering from a 1-0 home loss to Millwall which was a shock result especially in front of their home fans.
Middlesbrough’s main attacking threat, Chuba Akpom, who led the division with 28 goals last season, could make a return to the starting eleven this weekend after missing the first match due to a knee concern.
Middlesbrough and Akpom might just find the net and get back to winnings ways, with the Boro taking the win by the odd goal,1-0.
