SOUTHAMPTON TO WIN (- 1.00 AH) AT ODDS 1.40Final result: 4 - 0
Profit: 11.20 - 8 = 3.2
Three points from this game against Coventry City will send The Saints in Premier League and I doubt, that the hosts will make mistake in this clash.Southampton sits on 2nd position in The Championship, with 25-10-10 81-46 after 45 rounds and 15-4-3 45-18 at "St Mary's" in this period, which is the best home record in this league.In fact, The Saints managed to win only one point from their last two games here, but one of those games was against a good team like Reading FC (Southampton - Reading FC 1-3 on 13.04.2012), while Pompey were lucky to score an equalizer in the fourth minute of the stoppage time in the other game (Southampton - Portsmouth 2-2 on 07.04.2012).Richard Chaplow (midfielder) and Tadanari Lee (striker) will miss this game against Coventry City, but I doubt, that their absence will have a negative impact over the home team, especially in attack, where Billy Sharp (striker) and Rickie Lambert (striker) shows excellent form recently, with five and three goals respectively in the last 5 games.The visitors, on the other hand, are already in League One, as Coventry City sits on 23th position in the standings, seven points behind Barnsley FC (21th position).The Sky Blues owns the worst away record in The Championship this season, with only one victory and fifteen losses in 22 games (1-6-15 13-35).Coventry City is 0-2-3 4-9 in five games in April, without a single goal scored in their last two encounters (Coventry City - Millwall FC 0-1 on 17.04.2012 ; Coventry City - Doncaster Rovers 0-2 on 21.04.2012).Also, Andy Thorn has many problems ahead of this clash (especially in defence), as he won't be able to use Richard Keogh (defender), Cyrus Christie (defender), Richard Wood (defender), Nathan Cameron (defender), Hermann Hreidarsson (defender) and Sammy Clingan (midfielder).In fact, the hosts have only one victory in their last five games at "St Mary's" against this opponent (1-3-1 5-4), but considering the current form of these two teams, I don't think, that Southampton will make mistake in this clash.
