Coventry Sphinx have lost their last two league fixtures and both were against top 6 opposition. The defeat at Bromsgrove was followed by a 2-1 loss to Highgate Utd at Sphinx Drive on Tuesday evening so Sphinx will be eager to get back on track and show the form that produced the long unbeaten run. Sphinx have proven difficult to beat when on their travels and have lost just 3 of their 12 away games in the league.
Boldmere are in good form and have recent wins against South Normanton and Quorn behind them. They have suffered just one league defeat in their last 8 matches and that was at home to Haughmond. They have recorded 6 wins in that 8 game run with the 1 draw coming at home to the league leaders Coleshill.
This is the first league meeting between the clubs this season but Boldmere did knock Coventry Sphinx out of the FA Cup in August at Sphinx Drive. Goals from Capaldi and Skinner ended the Sphinx FA Cup campaign on the first game of the season.
