The72’s writers offer their West Brom vs Coventry City prediction ahead of their Championship clash on Friday evening.

West Brom head into this Friday night fixture with Coventry City following a hard-fought 1-1 draw away from home against fellow play-off hopefuls Hull City.

The Tigers initially led the Baggies through Fabio Carvalho, but Darnell Furlong hit back just before half-time to level things up. That was to be it for the scoring, with Carlos Corberan’s men securing a point on their travels and retaining their spot in the Championship play-off spots, sat 5th with 12 games to go.

Coventry City, on the other hand, missed the opportunity to reduce the gap between themselves and the top six during their last second-tier bout as they lost 3-0 on home soil to Preston North End.

Emil Riis put the visitors head within a minute, Will Keane then doubled the Lilywhites’ advantage before a Bobby Thomas own goal wrapped up the scoreline before the break. The Sky Blues sit 9th in the Championship table as a result, four points away from 6th spot.

Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…

 

Jacob Hackett

“As is always the case with Championship fixtures, especially at this end of the season, this is a really tough tie to call.

West Brom are trotting along quite nicely in the top six, whereas Coventry are pushing to return to the play-off spots having been dealt a massive blow last time out.

“It all depends on how the Sky Blues respond to that Preston defeat for me. If they produce a similar performance then the Baggies will be pleased, but there is a chance that they will bounce back in fashion at the Hawthorns.

“I do expect Coventry to up their performance, but on home soil I think West Brom should edge this one.”

James Ray

“This is going to be an interesting game. Coventry City are looking to join West Brom in the play-off spots but will be hoping to find a bit of consistency after a bit of an on-and-off run of late.

“A trip to The Hawthorns presents a stern test though. Prior to their loss to Southampton, the Baggies had won five straight league games on home turf while conceding just once.

“I’m leaning towards a home win, but I’ve got a feeling Coventry nick a point. I’ll say this ends 1-1.”

West Brom vs Coventry City prediction: 1-1
