Competition: Midland Football League Premier Division
Fixture: Coventry Sphinx v Loughborough University
Date: Saturday 13th January
Venue: Sphinx Drive
Last weekend Coventry Sphinx extended their unbeaten run to 11 games with a point away at Shawbury Utd and this Saturday they return home to Sphinx Drive. The last match at Sphinx Drive ended with Sphinx taking the points in a 4-3 win against Coventry Utd. 4th place Sphinx welcome Loughborough University on Saturday who are currently 16th in the MFL Premier Division.
Coventry Sphinx have turned Sphinx Drive into a bit of a fortress recently with maximum points gained from their last six league fixtures at Sphinx Drive. Those six games have seen Sphinx score 20 goals and concede just 8.
Loughborough arrive in Coventry with a run of five league defeats behind them. Both teams have scored in those five games and all have been close affairs. Their last league win was in early December when they overcome Haughmond 3-2 at home. Their last away win was at the end of October at AFC Wulfrunians and they have also recorded 1-0 away wins at Haughmond and South Normanton.
The two sides have already met this season when Coventry Sphinx returned from the blazing August heat in Loughborough with a 1-0 win thanks to a Ryan Harkin goal. Loughborough always produce a young and athletic team so they will be a test for Coventry Sphinx on Saturday.
