Norwich vs Coventry predictions: Sky Blues surge looks set to continue
Coventry have not tasted defeat in league or cup for the last two months and they will be looking to solidify their top-six status when taking on Championship promotion rivals Norwich at Carrow Road.
Mark Robins’s side have made a strong start to the year but they will be looking for an improvement in performance after Tuesday’s unconvincing 2-2 draw at home to Bristol City when they lost the shot count 13 to 11.
Norwich remain hopeful of pushing for the play-offs but they will need to find greater consistency.
The Canaries exited the FA Cup last Sunday with a 5-2 loss at Liverpool and they were beaten 1-0 at Leeds in their last Championship encounter.
Josh Sargent should return after he was left out of last Sunday’s FA Cup clash at Liverpool but Jonathan Rowe (broken hand) is a doubt.
Danny Batth (hamstring) remains absent but Grant Hanley featured at Anfield and is pushing to make his third league appearance of the season.
Coventry midfielder Ben Sheaf was forced off in the first half of Tuesday’s 2-2 draw at home to Bristol City with a hamstring injury.
January signing Victor Torp came off the bench in midweek and is pushing to make his first league start for the club.
Norwich have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine games.
The Canaries are unbeaten in their last seven home fixtures and eight of their 12 Championship wins have come at Carrow Road.
Norwich have conceded 44 league goals which is the highest among teams in the top 11.
Coventry are unbeaten in their last 12 matches, while all of their last seven fixtures have seen both teams score.
Mark Robins’s side have netted in 15 consecutive fixtures.
Coventry have not tasted defeat in any fixture since early December and they can boost their promotion hopes by defeating Norwich in East Anglia.
The Sky Blues were below their best in Tuesday’s 2-2 draw at home to Bristol City but still picked up a point against a decent opponent.
They have collected maximum points on each of their last three Championship road trips and should be confident of registering a victory over Norwich, who are struggling to put a consistent run together.
Norwich’s longest winning sequence in the league is just two games and that will surely have to change if they are to break into the top six.
David Wagner’s side have lost their last two fixtures and further disappointment looks probable this weekend.
