Bristol City Preview – Can the Robins make it five wins on the bounce?

Dean Holden, who was Lee Johnson’s assistant for four years, has made a stunning start to his full-time managerial role with Bristol City. The Robins have played four league and cup games so far this term, winning all four and scoring ten goals.

In the Championship, City started with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Coventry City at Ashton Gate. The Bristol club then beat Stoke City 2-0 at the bet365 Stadium last Sunday, with Nahki Wells and Andreas Weimann scoring in the Potteries.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bristol City have also won two out of two in the Carabao Cup. In the previous round, they were far too strong for EFL League One side Northampton Town at Ashton Gate, as goals from Kasey Palmer (2), Chris Martin and Antoine Semenyo earned the Robins a comfortable 4-0 win.

Can the Championship club make it five wins on the spin on Thursday and book their spot in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup?

Aston Villa Preview – Villans to secure narrow win in Bristol?

Aston Villa kicked off their season with a 3-1 EFL Cup win at Burton Albion. New signing Ollie Watkins was on the scoresheet at the Pirelli Stadium, with Jack Grealish and Keinan Davis also netting.

Villa followed that up with a 1-0 home win over Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United in the Premier League on Monday. It was a close encounter at Villa Park, with Ezri Konsa scoring the only goal of the game after John Egan was sent off for the Blades early on.

Jack Grealish netted in the 88th minute to put Villa in front in their eventual 3-1 win at Burton in the previous round. The Villa skipper is available at 12/5 to score anytime on Thursday.
