At Ashton Gate on Tuesday night, Nigel Pearson’s Bristol City and Nathan Jones’ Luton Town go head-to-head in the EFL Championship. Both teams have yet to win in the league this season, so this is already a vital fixture for the pair. The Robins may be the slight favourites to get the points on home soil, but this Championship clash could go either way. We have the latest betting odds and top tips in our in-depth preview.

Bristol City Preview – Robins to secure first league win?

Before a ball was kicked, Bristol City were tipped to have another tough season in the Championship, and it has been a difficult start for the Robins. City are among the seven clubs yet to win, collecting just one point from three games.

On matchday one, Bristol City let a lead slip to lose 2-1 at Hull City, which they followed up with a dramatic 3-2 home reverse to Championship new boys Sunderland. After an impressive 4-1 away win over Coventry City in the cup, Nigel Pearson’s men battled to a 1-1 draw at Wigan Athletic last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Luton to win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1518 GMT, Monday 15 August)

They have improved in their last two league and cup matches, but can Bristol City pick up their first league victory of the season this Tuesday night?

Luton Town Preview – Can the Hatters leave Bristol with a positive result?

Nathan Jones’ Luton Town were the surprise package in the Championship last season, with the Hatters reaching the play-offs. They were relegation favourites before a ball was kicked, but Town proved the doubters wrong.

Luton will be aiming for another top-six finish this season, but they have failed to win any of their opening three games. After drawing with Birmingham City and Burnley in their opening two, Town lost 1-0 at home to Preston North End last Saturday. They were also beaten at home by Newport County in the first round of the EFL Cup.
