After a turbulent few months Coventry’s league campaign got off to the worst possible start with a ten point deduction before a ball had even been kicked.
Following that bad news they travelled to Crawley Town on Saturday and ended up on the wrong-end of a 3-2 score line. Callum Wilson and Franck Moussa had pulled them level after going 2-0 down.
However a late Mike Jones strike broke the hearts of Steven Pressley’s side.
One To Watch
Striker Leon Clarke joined the Sky Blues on a 28-day loan deal from Charlton on Christmas Eve 2012. The forward made the deal permanent just days later signing a two-and-a-half year deal at the Ricoh. Clarke would go on to score a prolific 10 goals in 14 appearances for the club in 2012-13.
SkyBet make the O’s understandably favourites following the weekend’s results with Russell Slade’s side priced at 10/11 with the Sky Blues at 11/4 and odds of 13/5 on the draw.
If last season’s results are anything to go by then it could be a tight encounter in E10 this evening as back in October last year David McGoldrick’s solitary goal gave the Sky Blues a 1-0 win in E10 before Dean Cox’s first half strike at the Ricoh Arena was enough to secure all three points for the O’s back in April.
