West Brom vs Coventry City Prediction

The two teams still have an outside shot at making the playoffs but require an unlikely sequence of results.

This game being a city derby means both sets of players will give their all. There is little to separate the teams on paper, and they are also in similar form. So the spoils could be shared in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Coventry City.
