Bristol City Preview – Robins to move on to 16 points with a midweek home win?

Dean Holden has made an instant impact since taking the managerial role at Ashton Gate in the summer. The Robins have played eight league and cup matches so far, winning six, drawing one and losing one.

In the Championship, Bristol City started their season with four consecutive wins. City beat Coventry City, Stoke City, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest. They also picked up victories over Exeter City and Northampton Town in the Carabao Cup.

Our betting prediction:
Bristol City to score 3+ goals

However, Bristol City dropped points for the first time in the league last time out, drawing with Barnsley at Oakwell. Holden’s men nearly picked up a fifth successive Championship victory, but a Cauley Woodrow penalty in injury-time gave the Tykes a share of the spoils.

Bristol City have gone close on one or two occasions in recent years, but they will be pushing for a play-off place at the very least this season. Can the Bristol club get back to winning ways on Tuesday?

Middlesbrough Preview – Warnock’s men to come up short in Bristol?

Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough have had a mixed bag of results so far this season. After five games, Boro sit 15th on five points, winning one, drawing three and losing one. However, after starting with a 1-0 loss at Watford, they are unbeaten in four Championship matches, picking up one victory and drawing three times.

Since that defeat at Vicarage Road, Middlesbrough have drawn with Bournemouth, Queens Park Rangers and Reading. Last weekend, Boro became the first team to stop Reading from winning in this season’s Championship; can they do the same to Bristol City in midweek?
