The departure of Simon Grayson from Elland Road was supposed to signal a major change for Leeds United and their hopes of promotion to the Premier League.
However, in truth, the stewardship of caretaker boss Neil Redfearn has failed to provide a major shift in the club’s fortunes.
Three second half goals for Birmingham in a 4-1 defeat was enough to see Grayson dismissed and since then, five of the six goals scored in matches involving Leeds United have come in the second period and that trend could well continue into their visit to the Sky Blues.
Coventry City come into this match without a clean sheet in their last seven league games while Leeds United have conceded in nine of their last ten games in the division.
After all, eight of the last 11 goals conceded by Coventry have come in the second half, making odds of 333/100 on over 2.5 goals in the second half our bet to back, particularly as those utilising bwin’s free £25 bet could earn themselves a tidy £108.25.

Backing the Yorkshire club to score more second half goals at odds of 3/2 could prove a tidy tip too, with Leeds United coming into this encounter having scored nine of their last 11 goals in the second half, and Coventry proving particularly weak during the second periods of recent games.
A quick look at the history books also suggests that odds of 13/20 on both teams to score in the match could be one to back, with six of the last eight encounters between the two clubs seeing both teams scoring goals.
More importantly, Coventry City come into this match without a clean sheet in their last seven Championship games while Leeds United have conceded in nine of their last ten games in the division.
With Leeds United’s last six games averaging around three goals a game and given both teams’ penchant for conceding, those seeking a full time score bet could do well to back a Leeds United 1-2 win at 31/4.
