Coventry v Swindon Past Meetings

You have to go back 16 years for the last time Coventry beat Swindon. The Robins are on a 9-game unbeaten run against their relegation rivals. They won the reverse fixture 1-0 last August.


Coventry v Swindon Stats

Coventry have won four of 15 home matches at Ricoh Arena. Over 2.5 goals has happened in 36% of matches there.

Swindon have won two of 17 away games, and have lost 10. Over 2.5 goals has happened in 47% of matches on their travels.


Coventry Team News

Striker Stuart Beavon has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, and is still a doubt for Russell Slade’s side. Derby loanee Charles Vernam is also unlikely to feature, as he continues to recover from a shoulder injury.


Swindon Team News

It remains to be seen whether striker Jermaine Hylton will feature, after being left out of the last two match-day squads. Raphael Rossi-Branco sits out his second game of a two-match ban for picking up 10 yellow cards.


Reasons for Coventry v Swindon betting tips

Coventry finally picked up their first win since November last week, with a decent performance against fellow strugglers Gillingham. That was just their fourth league win at the Ricoh Arena this season – the league’s joint-worst record with Milton Keynes.

It was a morale-boosting victory for the team bottom of League One, one which could be a catalyst for an upturn in fortunes. The match against Swindon thus constitutes a perfect follow-up – a chance to take points off their relegation rivals.

Nevertheless, the Robins will equally have their eyes on the points. Despite losing five of their last six matches, they’re still only four points off safety. They’ve been competitive in all of their recent fixtures, not losing by more than a goal in any of their last 10 matches.

Their away form has been anything but convincing, but a recent away win over promotion chasers Bolton was promising. It’s likely that both teams will go all out for the points, but whether they can be separated is another matter.

The Sky Blues have drawn more games at home than they’ve won or lost this season, and that seems the most likely result again. Coventry will be boosted by last week’s home win, but Swindon will be equally motivated to pull further away from their relegation rivals. Back a stalemate at 12/5 with Bet365.

Coventry rarely keep a clean sheet at home, whilst Swindon have been even less able to keep out the goals on their travels. At the same time, over 2.5 goals seems unlikely taking into account previous results this season. Back a correct score of 1-1 at 11/2 with Bet365.
