Discuss the Coventry City vs. Doncaster Rovers match, tactics and predictions
Frustrating 1-1 as we look to brush the cobwebs off from our short break
A poor 2-0 defeat as the wheels come off.
0-1 .... head says.
Wow early doors!!!
Really big game - hopeful of a slightly improved crowd. Do we think 8000 is possible after the break?
Looking forward to it already if I’m honest.
Can see the team looking very similar and very unlikely we’ll have Allen or Kelly back
Hyam or Rose - Hyam for me although I really like Rose
Shipley Walsh and Westbrook (or O’Hare) again for me I’d prefer Westbrook and bring on O’Hare last 30
Hiwula or O’Hare for me Hiwula as O’Hare a number 10 not a winger
Jobello or kastaneer - for me still jobello
But boring really but why change what’s worked up till now.
What the hell guys. Be positive. This is a new Sky Blue chapter. We will win 3-0. PUSB
I would take the draw and stay unbeaten vs a rival tbh
@Nick Will we be having a betting post on this game? Didn't happen last game.
If we are wanting to go up, these are the games we have to win
Massive test. Would love a win. Expect a loss. Maybe City have changed but my decades of experience being a City fan hasn’t.
1-3 Godden to score
Dabo Hyam McFadz Mason
Westbrooke Walsh Shipley
Jobello Godden Hiwula
S: Wilson, Watson, Rose, O’Hare, Eccles, Kastaneer, Biamou
O’Hare on at 60 min
Hopefully Rose comes back in
I like Hyam
Its a good headache to have tbh choosing a pairing between the 3 CBs
Doncaster have had some good results this season including a credible away draw at Ipswich and home wins against Fleetwood and P'boro.
However, they have also lost at home to Blackpool and drew with Gillingham. Potentially our toughest test of the season but I'm going for a repeat of last seasons 2-1 home win.
2-0 city, onwards and upwards.
wow, come on you lot.
We've won every home game so far. Scored 9 goals and only conceded 3.
Donny have managed 2 draws away from home. And only scored 1 goal.
I agree it's a tough game but we have to be positive of 3 points here!
Bearing in mind I reserve the right to change my mind at least twice before the game.....1-0 to us. Team same as against Wimbledon, although I prefer Westbrooke to Shipley. Tough competitive game with few risks taken by either side, so could go either way. Hopefully we can nick it.
2-1 Cov, another 90 + minute goal to keep everyone on the edge of their seats
Somewher between 2-0 to us and 1-3 to them. Depends on my mood! Will lose my voice either way! Like to not give away an early goal this time, so the fans have chance to get into it!
Cheers for that piece of original thinking dom.
3-2 win after being behind twice.
94th minute winner.
Surely that's completely non reflective of anything relating to team quality, bolton were on minus point, and the league begins alphabetically. Its only really after around the tenth game that the league honestly represents ability surely?
Well I think that someone pretty soon is going to get hammered by us and it might just happen on Saturday
Sod that! I don't like nail biting endings to games
Play our free flowing football, don’t concede early and cruise to win 3-0.
More likely nervy opening go behind to soft goal and then battle to get back into game. Score on 60mins. Can’t find winner:1-1

That's a bit pessimistic.
This looks like the team he will go with. 2-1 heart, 1-1 head
All games are a test. There are no easy games, therefore I’m going 4-1 to Doncaster.
Get a room
Doncaster are a bit of a bogey team but looking forward to the game and both play football.
2-1 win. Godden and Biamou (but only if Biamou comes on earlier than the last game, otherwise 1-1)
This suggests Doncaster have had the toughest start in L1, but I was surprised to see that they have played 6 of their 8 games at home. So apart from when they got a creditable 0-0 draw at Ipswich, their only other away game was a 1-1 draw at Rochdale who are currently 17th.
Difficult to form an opinion on their away form based on that.
So an overall goal difference of +4 with 11 scored in total doesn't look particularly impressive.
I was thinking a 2-2 draw, but now erring towards a close win for us
