Coach Mark Robins has been working hard to bring this once-great club back to their rightful place at the peak of English football – though the road ahead is still long and difficult.
On one hand, the team earned two promotions in three seasons, which is commendable. On the other, these results are still but a shadow of Coventry’s glorious past.
Moreover, their status as a newly promoted team singles them out as underdogs in most matchups the 2020/21 Championship season can throw at them.
When it comes to Coventry betting, it’s difficult to get a reliable prediction because of the lack of head-to-head information against most second-flight teams. At odds of 2.37 for relegation, though, the bookies clearly don’t see much room for optimism
Coventry Key Players
Most of the reinforcements Robins brought in are talented, but inexperienced Premier League and Championship side players. Examples include Brighton’s centre-back Leo Östigard who’ll be donning the Sky Blue kit on a loan; Aston Villa’s Callum O'Hare, and Norwich’s Sam McCallum. None of these players is over the age of 25, though most can be considered players on the rise.
Matt Godden is Coventry’s standout goal-getter, though he has precious little experience this high up the league ladder. Besides, the strategies are more likely to be defensively-oriented, which is the case with most underdog squads. The centre-back duo of Dominic Hyam and Kyle McFadzean will thus play an important role in keeping the Sky Blues away from relegation.
The Sky Blues’ biggest rivalry by far is the famed M69 derby. Their rivals in this bout are the Premier League side Leicester City, named after the motorway which connects the two cities.
Traditionally, Aston Villa were considered Coventry’s greatest rivals. However, Coventry’s fall from prominence in the top flight rendered it meaningless because the two teams would never meet in league play. The M69 derby was especially noted in the 2000s, though it’s starting to decline again. Leicester are growing both financially and in terms of their successes, while Coventry are barely managing to stay afloat in the EFL Championship.
Based in the West Midlands city of Coventry, this club was initially founded as Singers F.C. in 1885. Initially, this was a club of factory workers in the motor manufacturing company Singer. The old name only lasted for about a decade or two, however. The first two decades of their existence were marked by navigating the yet-unestablished second tier of early English football.
This continued until the 60s when the Coventry City reached a sort of golden age in the Premier League. They quickly became a consistent part of the top-flight, with more than 30 consecutive years. though they never won the title, they recorded a number of achievements and could often be found among the 10 best-placed teams in the country. An FA cup victory remains their greatest achievement from this period. That’s when things started going south.
As the 21st century progressed, they fell out of the Premier League and were almost forced into administration. It all culminated in a humiliation relegation to League Two in 2017 – their first fall to the fourth tier since 1959. Since then, they’ve slowly been trying to claw their way back up the ladder.
Due to the light blue traditional colour of their kits, Coventry are often called the Sky Blues.
