Coventry City

Last updated: Tue 14 January 2020 05:46
In Brief

Held to a 1:1 draw by MK Dons. Keep playing their home games in Birmingham. Remain virtually at full strength.

Looking Back

Coventry scored inside the first minute of their weekend's game against MK Dons but eventually had to settle for a 1:1 draw.

The Sky Blues keep having their home games in Birmingham, but have done superbly well in their home games despite that.

Looking Ahead

The squad situation has improved massively over the recent weeks, with several players making their returns from injuries.

Wesley Jobello, out for the season, is expected to remain the sole absentee.

Points of Interest

Coventry currently have the third-best home record in League One. They have won eight of their thirteen home games and lost only once.

Bristol Rovers

Last updated: Tue 14 January 2020 05:46
In Brief

Poor run continued with a defeat against Doncaster. Ben Garner has been granted extended leave over a family matter. The squad situation remains unchanged.

Looking Back

There was more of the usual for Bristol Rovers last weekend, as two late goals condemned them to a 2:0 home defeat against Doncaster.

The result means that their poor record under Ben Garner continues. They have drawn two and lost four of their six games under their current manager.

Looking Ahead

Moreover, news surfaced that Garner has been given an extended leave by the club to deal with a private matter regarding the health of a family member. First-team coach Kevin Maher takes temporary charge.

The squad situation is expected to remain unchanged compared to last time around.

Points of Interest

Bristol Rovers have visited Coventry three times in the current decade, recording two defeats and a draw. They lost this season's league away game against the Sky Blues with a 2:0 scoreline.
