Bradford could be in for a tough time against Coventry on Saturday afternoon.
Bradford v Coventry - Saturday 15:00
Burnley youngster Dan Agyei goes straight into the Coventry squad and could make his senior debut at Valley Parade. The 19-year-old striker is considered a hot property and hopes are high that he can emulate the splash made by Adam Armstrong when joining the Sky Blues in similar circumstances 12 months ago.
Tony Mowbray has an excellent record for getting the best out of such talents and he could certainly do with the pace and power Agyei offers, Coventry have yet to score in three league outings. It's miserable start but the market appears to be over-reacting with odds of nearly 4/1 about the away win. The visitors might be inconsistent but they can put any team at this level to the sword when the mood takes them.
It's a bet that requires an abundance of faith because everything else appears to be in Bradford's favour. Successive away wins at Peterborough and MK Dons are stellar results but Stuart McCall has played four different systems in four matches and there's always a limit to how much chopping and changing can be done before the sense of purpose begins to drain.
The onus has been on Coventry in each of their three matches up to this point but the switch to underdogs might be most welcome. If they nick a lead at any point and drag the Bantams out of their comfort zone, they have the ability to add more goals when the game become stretched. Split a point between the Coventry 2-1 and Coventry 3-1 correct scores, both overpriced at 16/1 and 50/1 respectively.
