‘I’d be amazed’ – Sky Sports pundit delivers Coventry City promotion verdict

Published

on

Sky Sports pundit Keith Andrews has admitted that he would be amazed if Coventry City were able to sustain a push for promotion in the Championship this season.

The Sky Blues have made a stunning start to the 2021/22 campaign under the guidance of manager Mark Robins.

Yet to drop a point at home, Coventry are currently third in the second-tier standings and will be looking to extend their current unbeaten run to five games when they head to Kenilworth Road tomorrow to face Luton Town.

Whilst a host of the club’s players have managed to deliver the goods for the Sky Blues in recent weeks, Viktor Gyokeres has been particularly impressive.

Since joining Coventry on a permanent deal in the summer transfer window, the forward has taken his game to new heights as he has managed to find the back of the net on seven occasions in nine appearances.

Making reference to Coventry, Andrews has admitted that whilst he would be amazed if the club launch a promotion push this season, he has praised Robins for the job that he has done at Coventry.

Speaking on the latest edition of the Sky Sports EFL Podcast, Andrews said: “I’d be amazed if they sustained it [their current run of form].

“Just with the size of the squad.

Have Coventry City ever finished in the top ten of the Premier League table?

“What I have to say about it is, they are on the crest of a wave.

“They are really enjoying it, there is such a feel-good factor at that football club and Mark Robins has done a remarkable job full stop.”

The Verdict

Whilst the 2021/22 campaign is still in its infancy, Coventry have already illustrated that they can be a match for anyone in this division.

Taking this into consideration, it would be naïve to rule out their promotion credentials at this stage as they could take the Championship by storm if they continue to deliver the goods in-front of their own supporters.

The scale of Coventry’s success may depend on whether Gyokeres is able to maintain his consistency as well as his fitness.

The forward will unquestionably fancy his chances of adding to his goal-tally tomorrow against a Luton side who have only managed to keep one clean-sheet in their last five league games.
