Coventry are still on the slide after their solid start to the season. They have gone winless in their last three games played now in the league with just the one point on the board in that sequence. Port Vale are faring a lot worse though because they have put together a four match losing streak and only goal difference is keeping them off the foot of the table going into the weekend. So this is a scrap between two sides searching for form.
Coventry showed up well at the start of the season, looking like an early strong contender to get in the promotion picture. But they have only gone W1 L2 in their last three games and they haven’t hit the back of the net in any of those games. So there are big concerns with the Sky Blues at the moment then as they try and dig deep to pull themselves out of this hole. None of their games this season have seen both teams score in the match.
Port Vale Form
Vale have been having a rough old time of things. They opened with a win over Crawley this season, but it has been all downhill for them since. They have lost their last four games and have failed to score in each of their last three. So there’s probably not going to be a lot of goals around in this one at the Ricoh Arena. Under 2.5 goals is full backable at 4/5 with bet365.
Head to Head News
Surprisingly three of the last four between these in Coventry have gone over the 2.5 goal line, but this one doesn’t look likely to do so. Coventry have a W2 D1 L4 record in their last six games in all competitions, while the Vale have gone D1 L5. Therese two were together in League One last season and Coventry won both of those games and have gone W3 D1 in their last four against the Vale.
Top Betting Tips
These two are well out of sorts at the moment, but of the two, it looks as if it will be Coventry who manages to pull themselves out of their personal mire by taking a win in this one. They have the head to head form over Vale and can squeeze out the win in this one. They need it.
