Bristol City Preview – Will the Robins make it three home wins in a row?

Bristol City are enduring another tough Championship season. After 30 games played, the Robins have won nine, drawn seven and lost 14. Nevertheless, Nigel Pearson’s men are currently 14 points clear of 22nd-place Peterborough United.

Since beating rivals Cardiff City in the Severnside derby last month, Bristol City have gone on to take just one point from three Championship games. All three were away from home, as Pearson’s boys lost at Luton Town and Blackpool, and drew with Preston North End at Deepdale.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 2108 GMT, Monday 7 February)

Having seen off Millwall and Cardiff in their last two at Ashton Gate, the Robins will be looking to make it three home successes on the trot in midweek. The hosts are priced at 10/11.

Reading Preview – Another bad defeat for the struggling Royals?

Reading are slipping closer and closer to the drop after a horrendous run of results. The Royals have found it tough going since suffering the points deduction, and Veljko Paunovic’s troops are just two points above 22nd position right now.

Reading have lost six in a row, with five of those defeats coming in the Championship. They have shipped eight goals in their last two matches, losing 4-3 at home to Huddersfield Town before crashing to a heavy 4-0 defeat to QPR at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium last time out.
