Coventry vs Derby – Rams aiming to continue winning sequence

Coventry manager Aidy Boothroyd will be optimistic that his team can display the same resolve at Derby as they did against Watford in their last Championship game as they look to end a disappointing record against the Rams.

Boothroyd watched David Bell and Lukas Jutkiewicz score in the final three minutes to steal a 2-2 draw away at Watford and now they face a Derby side that they have not beaten in the last six attempts.

The television cameras will be at the Ricoh Arena for the early kick-off, with Coventry flying high in third in the Championship.

They have scored twice in both of their league games to date and are 5/4 to net at least two against Derby.

Meanwhile, they are 11/8 to move onto seven points with a victory, while the draw that will maintain their unbeaten start is 9/4.

Freddy Eastwood grabbed both goals in their opening day win at home against Portsmouth and he is 5/1 to break the deadlock.

Derby also played in front of the cameras in their previous away Championship game this season at Leeds and on that occasion ran out 2-1 winners.

A repeat of that scoreline at Coventry is 10/1, while it is 7/1 for them to duplicate the 1-0 triumph they registered at the Ricoh Arena last year.

Nigel Clough’s team have also scored in their last ten games against Coventry and they are 6/5 to grab the first goal.

Clough is considering whether Pole Tomasz Cywka will be able to play against Coventry after fracturing his cheekbone in their recent loss at home to Cardiff.

Cywka has already undergone surgery to repair the injury and could take to the pitch in a protective mask.

Tomasz Cywka scored Derby’s only goal in their loss to Cardiff and is 9/1 to open the scoring at Coventry.
