Sunday sees League One action take centre stage with the Bantams playing host to the Sky Blues and our tipster is backing the in-form visitors

Bradford welcome Coventry City to Yorkshire on Sunday with the sides separated by three points in League One.

With the Bantams sitting on the edge of the playoff places, Coventry will be eager to complete a remarkable turnaround which saw them start the season with a 10-point deduction due to entering administration.

Despite playing just 15 games so far this season, Steven Pressley's side could find themselves in the playoffs by the end of the weekend - a remarkable achievement given the penalty they incurred and the fact they now play their "home" matches at Northampton Town's Sixfields.

Coventry come into this match in fantastic form, winning their last four games in all competitions and remaining unbeaten in their last six. Those results have included some notable scalps too, which should encourage punters who are contemplating a wager.

Pressley's side have beaten top of the table Leyton Orient 3-1, as well as securing three points against Walsall and Sheffield United. Bet365 price them at 6/4 (2.50) to keep this winning run going.

Bradford, despite sitting in sixth position in League One, come into this match without a win in their last six, losing three of those games.

Phil Parkinson's side had an unforgettable season last year, gaining promotion through the play-offs and reaching the Carling Cup final and despite this current run, they look on course to finish in the playoffs again this campaign.

Rotherham dumped them out of the FA Cup last weekend, running out 3-0 winners, although Bantams backers will hope that will simply focus the home side on their league form. Bet365 price them at 17/10 (2.70) to get back to winning ways. The same firm price the draw at 12/5 (3.40).

With Coventry coming into this match in sensational form, it's tough to see past the Sky Blues in this fixture. Paired with Bardford's current poor run, it's certainly worth taking advantage of the 6/4 (2.50) price of Coventry to win this match and leap frog Bradford in the table in the process.
