Coventry to win again
We kick off our predictions for this match by backing Coventry to win. Blackpool have seen a step up in form recently but they have only won two of their last eight matches whilst losing four. Coventry meanwhile have seen a real transformation of their season in recent weeks; the Sky Blues are now unbeaten in four games – courtesy of Viktor Gyokeres scoring an injury time penalty against Rotherham in the week – with 10 points taken from their last four matches. That improved form combined with home advantage means we think they'll take maximum points here. On top of that, you have also got the head to head record to consider; Coventry have won two of the last three meetings between the sides whilst losing none.
Jerry Yates to score
We might have backed Coventry to win this game but that doesn't mean we can't see Blackpool scoring because we absolutely can.The prediction of the experts at best premium soccer tips is that Seasiders have scored 11 goals across their last four games and six of them have been bagged by Jerry Yates whilst he's averaging a goal every other game across the season so far. With that in mind, we would not be surprised to see him score again here.

Can Coventry leapfrog their visitors?
Coventry continue to battle away down in the lower region of the champions league predictions table and whilst they'll be confident of getting another result here they do have a couple of players out injured, which they'll need to navigate here. Liam Kelly, Matt Godden and Tyler Walker will all miss out.
Coventry Predicted lineup – Wilson, Rose, McFazdean, Doyle, Dabo, Bidwell, Sheaf, Hamer, Allen, Waghorn, Gyokeres
Blackpool enjoyed a big win in their last outing with our anytime scorer tip, Jerry Yates, likely to be a big player in this match. They do, however, have quite the list of absentees building up; Shayne Lavery is suspended with a further five players – including Kevin Stewart and Keshi Anderson – out injured.
Blackpool Predicted lineup – Maxwell, Connolly, Ekpiteta, Thorniley, Husband, Patino, Bridcutt, Dougall, Hamilton, Madine, Yates
