What lies ahead for City over the festive period?
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.
