Coventry continues to be at the bottom of the table and is six points away from safety at a time when the Bluebirds have climbed into the top half.

During the international break, Cardiff’s board of directors came under fire for their unexpected decision to fire Steve Morison as their manager.
But as it stands, the contentious decision prompted the response the Welsh team needed, with interim manager Mark Hudson scoring seven out of a potential nine points.
Strong finishes have helped Cardiff earn those points in each match, the most recent example occurring last Saturday when Cardiff defeated Wigan Athletic.
Everything now indicates that Hudson will be given the job permanently, and a third straight victory this weekend would further confirm that impression.
Cardiff has improved, but they are still only three points above last place, so Hudson and his team under pressure to maintain their momentum in the remaining games.
Coventry’s season was stop-start, and while that is now in the past, the club is still trailing in terms of points and games played, so its consequences are still being felt.
Recently, Mark Robins’ team went four games without a loss, but last weekend’s 1-0 loss to Burnley left the Sky Blues with three games remaining and six points from safety.
The situation won’t get better anytime soon because every team in the division is now playing a demanding schedule leading up to the World Cup, so Robins and his team have no option but to take each match as it comes.
Coventry will visit Cardiff City Stadium with a three-game winning streak under their belts, a comeback draw, and two scoreless draws.
Even though Hudson is expected to continue leading Cardiff full-time, things could change after a couple of losses.
Although Coventry are capable of shocking South Wales, we are backing the Bluebirds to prevail in a close match.
