Both teams have scored in four of the last five league meetings between Bristol City and Coventry.Bristol City are unbeaten in their last four home fixtures.Coventry have scored in each of their last six away matches.Bristol City should have enough firepower to prevail
Rookie manager Dean Holden has made a decent start in the Bristol City hotseat – steering them to a 2-0 success at home to Exeter in the EFL Cup – and we think he can mastermind a victory over Coventry.
There will be a sense of positivity around the Coventry dressing room with the club preparing for their first second tier fixture since 2011-12.
But the Sky Blues have one of the lowest budgets in the division and have been shopping for bargains in the transfer market.
Coventry aim to continue playing the attacking football which secured the League One title last season and have snapped up pacy forward Tyler Walker from Nottingham Forest.
They should score against Bristol City, who have not kept a clean sheet in their last 16 league fixtures.
But Bristol City have found the net in six of their last seven home games and have added powerful striker Chris Martin, so we think they can sneak a 2-1 success.
