Free-scoring Coventry can haul themselves off the foot of the table and finally secure a positive points total with a victory against Colchester.
The Sky Blues are 7/10 to make it three wins out of three in Northampton, where they are scheduled to play home games for at least the next three years, with 7/2 about a Colchester win and the draw at 5/2.
Coventry were docked ten points at the start of the season after entering liquidation and were only just allowed to take their place in the Football League ladder on the eve of the new campaign.
This means that, despite matching Colchester’s record of two wins, two draws and a loss, 13 places separate Joe Dunne’s side in tenth and their current opponents, who are currently bottom of the third tier with -2 points.
The Midlands club are in the odd position of propping up the table whilst at the same time topping the League One scoring charts so far this season.
Their 1-1 draw away to Shrewsbury last time out was the only fixture Coventry have featured in this season that hasn’t produced four goals or more.
With this in mind, the 8/5 on Steven Pressley’s team to win combined with over 2.5 goals scored in the match is a great way to boost your returns.
A 4-4 draw in their last home tie against Preston followed the 4-0 thumping of Carlisle away and a 5-4 thriller against Bristol City at Sixfields Stadium.
The U’s, on the other hand, have gone backwards recently after a strong start yielded six points from their first two League One fixtures.
