Burnley preview: Sky Blues to edge it?

Burnley preview: Sky Blues to edge it?

Coventry City can complete a good week with a win over Burnley on Saturday as two sides in the lower reaches of the Championship meet at the Ricoh Arena.

While the Sky Blues will be in good heart following victory over Nottingham Forest and a last-gasp equaliser at Leeds, the Clarets are struggling with injuries and results and were down to just sixteen fit players for Tuesday night's defeat at Barnsley.

'We're desperate to get players back,' manager Eddie Howe told BBC Radio Lancashire.

'When you lose players like Danny Ings, Martin Paterson and Michael Duff it does hurt you with a small squad.'

On the road, Howe's team have won two of their five games including an excellent win at Derby but have only scored four times away from home to date.

At the Ricoh meanwhile Andy Thorn's men have lost just one of their six games and against teams currently in the bottom half of the table they are unbeaten with only one goal conceded.

The Sky Blues are creating more chances but remain far from prolific so it all points to another tight, tense affair with, hopefully, the home side edging it by a single goal.

Cody McDonald may come into contention after getting a good 45 minutes at Elland Road while Richard Wood showed once again that he is a threat in the opposition box.

Wood is 25/1 to score the last goal with Paddy Power.

City are 27/4 to win 1-0 with bwin.
