West Bromwich Albion square off against Coventry City on Saturday

Looking to snap their five-game winless run away from home, West Bromwich Albion travel to Coventry Building Society Arena to square off against Coventry City on Saturday.

The visitors are currently on a run of three consecutive draws and risk dropping out of the playoff places should they fail to pick up all three points.

Coventry City were involved in yet another share of the spoils last Saturday as they played out a thrilling 2-2 draw against 10-man Bournemouth.

Prior to that, Mark Robins’ men claimed a 3-2 home win over Bristol City before playing out successive draws against Sheffield United and Birmingham City respectively.

This decent run of results has seen Coventry City surge into playoff contention as they sit sixth in the EFL Championship table with 33 points from 20 games.

Meanwhile, West Bromwich Albion’s failed to arrest their dip in form last Friday as they were held to a bore draw by a determined Nottingham Forest side.

Valérien Ismaël’s side have now failed to taste victory in each of their last four games, picking up three draws and losing once since a 1-0 win over Hull City exactly one month ago.

The slump in form has seen West Bromwich Albion drop to fourth place on the log, eight points adrift of the automatic promotion spot.

Coventry City vs West Bromwich Albion Prediction

Despite their impressive start to the season, both sides have suffered a slump in form in recent weeks and head into the game on the back of a string of unconvincing performances.

The visitors are currently unbeaten in their last four games against the hosts and we predict they will keep this run going and steal a slender win on Saturday.
