Coventry currently lie 4 points off automatic promotion which is currently occupied by Cardiff City.
Coventry are currently in fine form winning their last 3 fixtures to recover from a three game losing streak to close the gap on the teams above them.
The new look front line has repaid Boothroyd’s faith in them by turning in some top notch performances.
However, Coventry’s fine form comes with a warning. The clubs next four fixtures look extremely tricky first visiting serial under achievers Reading before hosting fourth placed Norwich, visiting second placed Cardiff, before welcoming league leaders QPR.
This is a huge test of the sides character and you would have to believe that if they emerged from these fixtures with 7 or more points Coventry will be seen as series contenders for promotion.
However, there is also another warning for any over expecting Coventry fans, a quick look at last seasons league 1 table at around this time of the year will show a Colchester United comfortably in the play off spots.
Colchester finished the season in 8th placed two places outside the play offs and 8 points off Huddersfield who finished in 6th. Could it be Boothroyd produces teams that have end of season collapses?
My personal opinion is that Coventry will struggle to get four points from their next fourth fixtures, which will cause a dip in the sides confidence and result in them slipping down the table.
I believe Coventry do not have enough quality or a strong enough squad to maintain a promotion push and will comfortably finish in the top half of the table between 8-12th place. Giving them a solid base to build on for next season.
For the sake of the Coventry fans I hope I am proved wrong and your push can go down to the wire.
What do you the Coventry fans think are my views acceptable or am I not giving enough credit to your side?
Where do you think you will finish? What more could Boothroyd do to strengthen your side?
Also rivals of Coventry let us know do your fear them? Or are they just in a rich vain of form?
