Coventry vs Stoke City preview
Stoke’s away form continues to impress with only one loss in the previous matches on the road. This might not be one of those easy-win trips, but they will be set to extend their 2-match winning trend. However, the home fans will definitely back their team with all energy they got, making it quite the uncomfortable environment for Stoke City. However, it has been long since Stoke City won away at Coventry that’s the thing that worries us most. The safer selection for this match is a X2 because draw is the second most likely option while Stoke City is the first selection.
