Norwich continue their push for automatic promotion when they travel to St Andrew’s to take on Coventry on Wednesday evening.
The Championship encounter gets underway at 7pm.
The Canaries are certainly not to be messed with this season. They are aiming to bounce straight back to the Premier League, having been relegated last time out. They currently sit top of the Championship, one point ahead of Brentford.
Daniel Farke has guided his side to 17 wins from 29 games, with seven draws and five losses along the way. But things have not gone their way in recent weeks, with Norwich boasting just one win in their last five matches. That victory came against Stoke on Saturday. Teemu Pukki netted a brace, with Todd Cantwell and Emiliano Buendia also on target.
But the 4-1 win came after two draws and two losses in their previous four games. It leaves them sitting ninth in the current Championship form table for the last six games.
Their opponents, however, are 19th in that form table. They also have two losses, two draws and one win from their last five. That win came against Sheffield Wednesday at the end of January. Mark Robins’ men sit 20th in the Championship table, dangerously close to the relegation zone.
Coventry vs Norwich Prediction
The sides came together very recently, meeting in the FA Cup third round last month. The Canaries came out on top that day, with Kenny McLean and Jordan Hugill scoring two goals in two minutes to win the tie 2-0.
Coventry can be backed at 21/5 to cause an upset and win the game on Wednesday. A draw has been given odds of 14/5.
League leaders Norwich are favourites at 5/6 to come away with all three points.
Farke’s main weapon Pukki will be keen to add to his goals tally for the season. He currently sits fourth in the standings with 13. The Finland international can be backed at 7/2 to score the first goal of the game.
His team-mate Buendia has eight league goals to his name this season. The Argentine has been given odds of 7/1 to open the scoring, with Onel Hernandez available at 9/1.
