  • Competition: Championship
  • Date: Friday, 1st March 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
  • Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich)

The 2023/24 season is the third straight year for WBA to spend in the Championship. At the moment, they are fifth on the table and they certainly hope to win promotion via playoff. WBA lost only one of the last six matches. In the previous game, they played 1-1 on the road against Hull. The guests probably deserved points more from that match as they had an xG of 1.10, while the home side had 0.57. 

Coventry haven't played in the Premier League since 2001. Still, this season, they are only four points behind the playoff zone, so Mark Robins' team has chances to sneak in, too. Same as WBA, Coventry, too, lost only one of the last six matches. In the previous game, they won 5-0 at home in the FA Cup against Maidstone. The guests are a team from the sixth level of English football, so Coventry didn't have too hard a task to qualify for the next round. 

WBA vs Coventry pick: WBA to win

WBA's home record (11-3-3) is one of the best in the Championship. Also, WBA won the only h2h match against Coventry this season. WBA to win should be the best bet for this tie.

WBA team news

After a draw against Hull, WBA's head coach Carlos Corberan was satisfied. Also, he was delighted that they scored another goal from a set-piece and added that they are always trying to find new ways to score. 

WBA doesn't have too big of a problem with missing players. For the game versus Coventry, they will be without Josh Maja, Matt Phillips, Daryl Dike, and Brandon Thomas-Asante. The number of players is not an issue, but the problem is that all four are from the attacking department. Still, as the head coach said, they are always looking for new ways to score.

Coventry City

Coventry team news

Coventry had the FA Cup against Maidstone on Monday. The head coach, Mark Robbins, used that game to rotate the squad and give some players who hadn't played much lately a chance. We should expect Robbins to revert to their best possible eleven. 

Coventry's Jamie Allen and Ben Sheaf are unavailable for the game versus WBA.
