Three matches into the new Championship campaign and only two sides have started better than Bournemouth – Bristol City and Reading. Jason Tindall will be hoping his team can deliver an accomplished display en route to another victory when travelling to face newly-promoted Coventry in Friday's televised clash.

Their hosts lost to Bristol on MD1, but secured a comeback win over QPR and drew away to Barnsley since then. Can they earn their second victory of the campaign against a side who were in the Premier League just two months ago?

Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Coventry vs Bournemouth Betting Tips

Coventry hit the woodwork, had more completed passes (317, 72% success), dribbles (8/13, 62% completion) and yet only a point to show for their efforts at Oakwell on MD3. Barnsley needed a late escape to avoid switching divisions with Coventry, though head coach Mark Robins won't need to galvanise his side for their next clash.

They host a Bournemouth side that have begun life back in England's second-tier with a clear target: leaving as the earliest opportunity. Since their Premier League relegation was confirmed – despite a 3-1 final day win over Everton – they've won three of their five competitive games.

Marcus Browne's 81st-minute equaliser stung them away to Middlesbrough, while Manchester City's youngsters shone as they lost 2-1 in the EFL Cup last week. They conceded 14 shots against Norwich on Sunday and were busy defensively, yet still emerged unscathed with a 1-0 victory.

Tim Krul made a string of important saves, but Arnaut Danjuma delivered another moment of individual brilliance to break the deadlock. The 23-year-old winger will be key as they target promotion back to the promised land at the first time of asking.

With that in mind, it'll be interesting to see how Coventry defend against players like him and Dominic Solanke in the final third – two motivated forwards.

Coventry vs Bournemouth Correct Score Predictions

Coventry should back themselves to spring a surprise as the hosts. Unfortunately for them, I don't see that happening as Bournemouth are creatively strong and will want to make a statement on TV.
