MATCH PREVIEW : Coventry v Southampton Npower Championship -5 November-2011,16:00 CET

MATCH PREVIEW : Coventry v Southampton Npower Championship -5 November-2011,16:00 CET.Anyone reading the title of this fixture would be excused for assuming that I’d be backing Southampton for a straight win or perhaps an asian handicap – not so!
Coventry City take on Championship leaders at their Ricoh Arena on Saturday as they bid to pull away from the bottom three. However, even a win will still see them in the last relegation spot but they could post a five point cushion over rivals Bristol City who are still yet to win at home this season.Watch Coventry v Southampton Live Stream Online PC TV Video Free, Coventry v Southampton Live Online Instant Streaming Internet TV Free, Coventry v Southampton Live Soccer TV Channels Online, Coventry v Southampton live streaming broadcast Online Today, Coventry v Southampton Live Stream Online Video Coverage Now, Npower Championship live stream online HD TV Online, Coventry v Southampton Live Stream Online HDTV Coverage Here.TEAM NEWS :Match Preview.Until their last home match against Burnley, Coventry City had put together a five match unbeaten run at home with wins over Derby County and Nottingham Forest, and draws against Reading and Blackpool, and out of the bottom three clubs including Bristol City and Doncaster Rovers, Coventry possess the best home record with 9 points out of a possible 21. Not great I admit, but compare it to Bristol City (2/21) and Doncaster (6/21).

The Sky Blues’ home record stands at 2-3-2 7/6, and when you look at the head-to-head meetings between these two sides, Coventry haven’t lost to Southampton and indeed have won 2 and drawn 3. Their overall record v Southampton at home reads an impressive 20-10-4 56/27. This I think qualifies Coventry City as a bogey side for Southampton?

Forward Lucas Jutkiewicz (5 goals) is their leading scorer with assists from Richard Keogh and Cyrus Christie (2 each), but also have attacking midfielders such as Sammy Clingan, Gary McSheffrey and Clive Platt.

Southampton travel to the midlands on the back of a six match unbeaten run which has included impressive wins over Watford 4-0, West Ham 1-0, Middlesbrough 3-0 and Peterborough United 2-1; but all of these wins have been at St Marys Stadium and their home form cannot be questioned at the moment.
