Notts County vs Coventry predictions and betting tips for the League Two play-off second leg on Friday evening with a goals tip and match prediction included.
It ended 1-1 at the Ricoh on Saturday night although Notts County fans were left feeling aggrieved about the late penalty awarded against them. They will be hoping to make Meadow Lane a fortress once again as they welcome Coventry for the second leg of this play-off. They have won 61% of their home matches this season and very few teams have left this stadium with anything to show for it. Kevin Nolan is likely to have an effective game-plan and it could be enough to send his side through to the final. Coventry weren’t at their best on Saturday but they are a young team who have off-days although they can’t afford another one here. They carry a significant threat and they will be hoping to exploit the Magpies defence here. The two sides are playing for a place at Wembley where they will face either Exeter or Lincoln.

Coventry’s last trip to this stadium came on April 7th and they were defeated 2-1 on that occasion. The hosts will be confident of repeating the trick and will use the wall-of-noise to their advantage. A similar outcome is expected. The first of our Notts County vs Coventry betting tips is Notts County Win which is priced at 28/17 with Sport Pesa.
Both of these teams found the net during the first leg and they also scored when they met here in April. They carry plenty of threat and it’s unlikely that either side will opt to sit back here. Both Teams to Score? Yes is priced at 4/5 with Ladbrokes and is the second of our Notts County vs Coventry predictions.
It might take a player to come off the bench and make the difference here and Lewis Allesandra fits the bill. He could be given 20 minutes to ask questions of the Coventry defence. Lewis Allesandra in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 5/2 with Paddy Power and is the last of our Notts County vs Coventry betting tips.
It’s hard to separate these two sides in the betting with each team priced at 28/17 going into this second leg. The draw will be popular once again and is available at 9/4.
It is 14/19 for Under 2.5 Goals to land here whilst a more palatable Evens is on offer for Over 2.5 Goals.
Marc McNulty netted from the penalty spot during the first leg and he is the favourite to score once again. He is priced at 16/5 to notch first against the Magpies. The experienced Jon Stead is 6/1 to net the opener which is the same price as Jonathon Forte.
All of these odds are from Sport Pesa
Jonathon Forte limped off on Saturday and will need a late fitness check but with a six-day gap in-between games, he should have sufficiently recovered.
Coventry are without Tom Davies who is banned for this tie following a retrospective decision from the FA.
