Coventry prepare to entertain Nottingham Forest at Highfield Road Stadium on Wednesday evening, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. Only 7 wins have been recorded in the 37 games, with 13 ending in defeat.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Highfield Road Stadium was less than a year ago, in August 2002, with Nottm Forest inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Sky Blues in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides
Coventry City's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Sky Blues have scored 5, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.
Nottm Forest's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Forest have hit 9 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Coventry are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 2 points from 2 matches. Nottm Forest find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 3 points from their 3 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from Coventry at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Sky Blues will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
