What lies ahead for City over the fes­tive pe­riod?

Warwickshire Telegraph - - FOOTBALL - By ANDY TURNER

COVENTRY City kick off their fes­tive pe­riod when they get back to League One ac­tion at Wal­sall this week­end.

The Sky Blues have a busy De­cem­ber schedule with five games in the space of four weeks that could shape the sec­ond half of the sea­son.

Do well and Mark Robins’s men will stay right in touch with the pro­mo­tion and play-off chas­ing pack but a mis­er­able re­turn will see City slip to midtable medi­ocrity and risk los­ing their grasp of any tan­gi­ble suc­cess in the divi­sion.

City ex­pe­ri­enced con­trast­ing for­tunes dur­ing Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber, the for­mer pro­vid­ing a su­perb haul of 15 points from a pos­si­ble 18, while the lat­ter saw the side man­age a measly two points from 12 avail­able.

But with three home games and two away this month, and three fix­tures against mid-ta­ble op­po­si­tion, hopes will be high for City to get their cam­paign back on track.

The fes­tive fix­tures have been kind to the fans and play­ers with rel­a­tively short trips to Wal­sall’s Banks’s Sta­dium and Shrews­bury’s New Meadow.

Here is an as­sess­ment and pre­dic­tion for those fix­tures.
