Bristol City Preview – Will the Robins get back to winning ways at Ashton Gate?

Bristol City bullied their way back into the play-off places with successive wins over Wigan Athletic, Barnsley, Reading and Queens Park Rangers, scoring five and conceding none along the way. However, they were beaten at home by Birmingham City last time out, losing 3-1 to the Midlands club.

City dropped out of the top six, with Preston North End taking over on goal difference. Nevertheless, Lee Johnson’s troops are in a great position, as they are only five points adrift of the automatic spots with 15 games to play. Overall, Bristol City have won 14, drawn eight and lost nine.

Our betting prediction:
Bristol City HT/FT
13/5

(odds taken 1200 GMT, Tuesday 11 February)

 
Bristol City have been better away from home than at Ashton Gate this season, with only current leaders West Bromwich Albion picking up more points on the road. City have claimed just five home league wins this term, drawing four and losing five of the other nine. Can they secure a huge three points on their own patch this Wednesday?

Derby County Preview – Can the Rams make it back-to-back away wins?

Derby County picked up a rare win on the road last weekend. The Rams edged a five-goal thriller against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, with Welshman Tom Lawrence netting the winner. That was County’s first away league win since beating Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium on the opening weekend of the season.

Derby are starting to hit form at just the right time. The Rams have won each of their last three in league and cup, scoring a superb 11 goals in the process. Phillip Cocu’s troops are seven points adrift of the play-offs in 13th place ahead of this round of fixtures.

Only Preston North End have picked up more home points than County, but their away form has been very poor. Before last weekend’s win in South Wales, Derby had lost seven of their previous ten on the road in the Championship. Still, can they follow up last Saturday’s victory with another win away from home in midweek?

 

Bristol City vs Derby County Betting Advice

Back in August, Bristol City left Pride Park with a 2-1 win. First-half goals from Andreas Weimann and Josh Brownhill gave the Robins a 2-0 lead at the break. The Rams huffed and puffed in the second period, but Jack Marriott’s effort five minutes before the end was just a consolation.

 

Key Facts – Bristol City vs Derby County Betting Tip

  • Bristol City had won four league matches in a row before last Friday’s home defeat to Birmingham
  • Derby have won just two away games in this season’s Championship
  • The Robins are only outside of the play-off places on goal difference

 

Derby have won just one of the last seven meetings, and this will no doubt be another stern test for Cocu and his side. Bristol City will be desperate to bounce back from defeat, and I fancy the Robins to secure a crucial three points on home soil this Wednesday. There’s good value in the home team to win -1 at 3/1.
