Hughes Given The Sky Blues
The 1987 FA Cup winners have been a long time out of the Premier League but are eyeing promotion this term after 4 wins in their last 5 - and they could finish off Hughes.
This one is a classic FA Cup 3rd round tie. The top flight side heads to the Ricoh Arena knowing that their manager’s job hangs by a thread. At a best price of 21/5 with BetVictor, Coventry are worth a punt.
The problems facing Mark Hughes look pretty insurmountable when you consider that it doesn’t seem to matter what side he puts out. One group lost abjectly 5-0 to Chelsea last weekend and then 6 different players were drafted in for the home defeat to Newcastle.
The Potters have the worst defence in the Premier League by a distance having conceded 47 times in 22 outings.
The Sky Blues are the polar opposite. They occupy the automatic promotion positions in League 2 courtesy of the best defence in the division. They struggle for goals but they’ll fancy their chances of getting at least one against a side bereft of confidence. It might be enough.
