- Coventry are unbeaten in their last eight league games at St Andrews (W4, D4).

- Nottingham Forest have won just two of their 12 away trips this season, losing seven.
Sky Blues Rock Solid at St Andrews
Coventry City are a team to be respected on the St Andrews turf and we’re backing the Sky Blues to enhance their eight match unbeaten home streak against struggling Nottingham Forest this week.
City have won four and drawn four of their last eight home starts in the Championship and their form at St Andrews has been key to Mark Robins’ side easing themselves seven points clear of the relegation zone.
Defensively they have been outstanding here, with clean sheets maintained in their last four starts and in six of their last seven, so it’s difficult to envisage too many problems being caused this Tuesday by a Forest frontline that has managed a poultry six goals on the road this season.
The Tricky Trees have won just two of their dozen away trips, losing seven, so the hosts rate a cracking wager in the Draw No Bet market this week, which offers the insurance of stakes returned should things end all square.
We think the Sky Blues will have enough nous and momentum to edge this one though and we’re predicting a 1-0 correct score based on their glut of recent home clean sheets and Forest’s failings in front of goal on their travels.
