Stat Attack

  • Coventry are unbeaten in five of their last six meetings against Huddersfield (W2, D3, L1).
  • Huddersfield have won just one of their last six visits to Coventry (W1, D2, L3).
  • Coventry scored first in each of their two meetings against Huddersfield last season (W1, D1).
  • Mark Robins’ Sky Blues have kept two clean sheets in three league matches at home this season (W1, D2).
  • Jack Rudoni has scored in two of his last three appearances for Huddersfield.



Finding consistency within their performances has been Coventry’s main issue so far and after suffering a lacklustre defeat at Cardiff which contained a sluggish tempo and lack of urgency at times, there has to be a response if these Sky Blues are to once again start pushing for promotion.

Having had to deal with the emotion of Neil Warnock’s departure last week, Huddersfield now have to adapt quickly to Darren Moore’s playing style which is mianly 3-5-2 with a deep-lying midfield linking the defensive switch from playing into attack from the back.

Fully adopting that style will however take time but Huddersfield are a solid team so this will likely be a game of learning for both players and Moore alike, which is something that Coventry might just take advantage of if can get on the front foot and are clinical enough.

Prediction: Coventry 2-1 Huddersfield

Result: Coventry 1-1 Huddersfield
