Cambridge United vs Coventry City Match Prediction

By William Hall

Cambridge United host Coventry City at The Cambs Glass Stadium this weekend and with both teams coming into this one of the back of wins, it shapes up to be an entertaining encounter. Cambridge beat Crewe on Tuesday night away from home thanks to a first half goal from forward Jabo Ibehre. This gave them there second away win of the season, taking them up to 13th in League Two. Coventry have had a solid start to eh season currently on 13 points and positioned 4th. A comfortable 2-0 at home to Carlisle in the last match has left them in good shape for this one as they look to make it three wins out of three. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Cambridge have managed to pick up four points in their opening three games. After the disappointing first home game of the season, they have turned it around by drawing to Morecambe and beating Colchester. Although on paper Coventry look the toughest side to have visited The Cambs Glass Stadium this season, they will still think they can get something from the game. It is unusual to see many goals go in at Cambridge with over 2.5 goals coming in just once in the last five matches. These two have met twice in the last couple of seasons, and on both occasions, the games have been in Cambridge. When the sides met in the FA Cup in 2016, Cambridge ran riot winning the game 4-0. A year before it was a bit closer by once again Cambridge ran off 1-0 winners. Coventry have come a long way since then. Although they have been relegated, it has given them the opportunity to start to rebuild, and it seems like it has worked. Coventry won their first away game of the season 2-0 at Grimsby, but have failed to win on the road since. We can see this being a very, very close encounter between two good teams.

Cambridge United Preview

The man who got the winning goal for Cambridge United in their last game is the sides biggest threat with two goals so far this season. Jabo Ibehre has been in and around the lower leagues for quite a few years and has got into double figures in both of the last two campaigns. If he can do this again this season, it would go a long way for his current club. The winning goal in the last game away to Crewe showed glimpses of what he can do for the side this season, but he will defiantly need to do it more often to make himself a big name in League Two.

Cambridge will go into this game with Coventry with no injuries or suspensions.

Coventry City Preview

Coventry's last game was possibly the easiest they have had this season after cruising to a 2-0 win over Carlisle United. It took until the second half for the home team to get their noses in front, but in the 48th minute, Nazon Duckens have his side the league with a lovely placed finish. Peter Vincenti secured the three points with 10 minutes to go which gave him his first goal of the season. Winger Jodi Jones has scored four goals in seven games for the side already this season making him by far the biggest threat for Coventry. If they can keep this man fit, he will play a huge part in the side's success.
