Bristol City Preview – Can Robins end slump?

Bristol City will be keen to avoid a fifth defeat on the trot in the Championship when they play host to Reading at Ashton Gate following recent defeats to Derby County, Brentford, Cardiff City and Watford, the latter being a heavy 6-0 rout at Vicarage Road on the weekend.

Three of these four losses were incurred away from home though, and at Ashton Gate, Bristol City have won three of their last four with victories gained over Wycombe Wanderers, Preston North End and Huddersfield Town.

A home record of 7-2-5 14/13 is typical of Bristol City’s mid-table position of 13th and goals have been hard to come by as 10 of Bristol City’s 14 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Reading Preview – Can Reading bounce back?

Reading also head into this midweek clash at Ashton Gate seeking to return to winning ways as The Royals have lost their last two league matches on the trot, losing to Brentford and Millwall at home in 3-1 and 2-1 losses respectively.

The Royals had previously put together a stubborn but solid run of seven games without defeat in the Championship which included wins against Luton Town, Huddersfield Town, Coventry City and Bournemouth while also losing just three games away from home all season.

An away record of 5-6-3 18/16 suggests Reading will be hard to beat on Tuesday night too and they’ve lost just once in their last eight matches on the road but a lack of goals is also evident as eight of Reading’s 14 away matches have also been low-scoring affairs.
