Bristol City Preview – Robins to make it nine points from a possible nine?

Dean Holden landed the Bristol City managerial job in the summer after spending four years as Lee Johnson’s No. 2. The 41-year-old has had to bide his time, but he will have enjoyed his new role so far.

The Robins have started this season with back-to-back Championship wins over Coventry City and Stoke City. On the opening weekend of the league season, the Robins edged past the Sky Blues, which they followed up with a 2-0 victory at the bet365 Stadium last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Bristol City to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1202 GMT, Saturday 26 September)

Bristol City won their opening four league and cup matches of the season, also seeing off Exeter City and Northampton Town in the Carabao Cup. However, they were beaten 3-0 at home by Premier League Aston Villa in the third round on Thursday.

Bristol City would love to make it nine points from a possible nine at the weekend. The hosts are the favourites, with bet365 offering 31/20 for a home win.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Will Wednesday maintain unbeaten start?

It has been a stressful time for Sheffield Wednesday, who started the season on -12 after breaching Football League rules over a period of time. However, they have cut that to -8 having taken four points from their opening two.

Sheffield Wednesday have had two tough matches so far, so to get four points will have delighted Garry Monk. The Owls started with an impressive win over Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium, with Josh Windass and Jordan Rhodes getting the goals in the 2-0 success. Wednesday then drew 0-0 with Watford at Hillsborough last time out in the league.

  • Bristol City have beaten Sheffield Wednesday just once in the last eight Championship meetings
  • The Owls have won each of the last four games between the two
  • Bristol City are one of just three Championship clubs to have won both league games thus far


Sheffield Wednesday have done very well to take four points from their opening two matches, but Sunday’s matchup in Bristol will be a tough one for the Owls.
