Clarke a shoo-in at 11/2

Live on Skysports 1: Thurs 19.45: Coventry (21/20, Coral) can see off Preston in their Johnstone’s Paints Trophy semi-final first leg.

Only three points separate Coventry and Preston in League One but it’s the Sky Blues that should have the upper hand as the pair face-off in the Johnstone’s Paints Trophy semi-final first leg at the Ricoh Arena.

Blue Square make the Sky Blues 1/2 to ultimately qualify over the two games and they can edge closer to that goal by coming out on top in the pair’s first meeting, an outcome Coral chalk up at 21/20.

Admittedly, the loss of David McGoldrick is a blow but Mark Robins has moved swiftly to replace him, bringing in Leon Clarke, who enjoyed a fruitful loan spell at Scunthorpe and he can immediately pick up where he left off by helping his new team prevail here.

Bet365 make Clarke 11/2 to open the scoring and also offer 6/4 about him finding the net at any stage while Totesport quote Coventry at 8/1 to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline and it’s 9/2 at William Hill for the Sky Blues to shade this first leg following a drawn first period.

Recommended Bets:
Leon Clarke to score first – 11/2 (bet365)
Coventry to beat Preston – 21/20 (Coral)
