EFL Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion have a tough assignment this weekend, as Slaven Bilic takes his troops to Ashton Gate to play Bristol City. Lee Johnson’s men are also pushing for promotion to the Premier League, and the Robins are in seventh place at the time of writing. Who will come out on top in this mouth-watering Championship clash?

Bristol City Preview – Can the Robins topple the league leaders at Ashton Gate?

Lee Johnson’s Bristol City have had a strange season so far. They seem to either blow hot or cold, but the Robins are well and truly in the promotion mix with 13 games left to play. Bristol City are seventh at present, level on points with sixth-place Preston North End.

Since losing five of six, City have won four and lost two of their following six. After four straight wins, the Robins have lost two of three. Last weekend, Johnson’s team fell to a narrow defeat to Leeds United at Elland Road.

Our betting prediction:
Over 4.5 goals
9/2

(odds taken 1533 GMT, Thursday 20 February)

 
The Robins have struggled at home in recent months, losing four of their last seven at Ashton Gate in the Championship. Since a 5-2 victory over Huddersfield Town on November 30th, the likes of Millwall, Blackburn Rovers, Brentford and Birmingham City have all won on their patch.

28 of their 53 points have come away from home this term. Nevertheless, can Bristol City shock the league leaders by claiming a crucial home victory on Saturday afternoon?

West Bromwich Albion Preview – Will the Championship’s best away team secure another three points on the road?

West Bromwich Albion are four points clear at the top of the Championship table after 33 games. However, they conceded late to draw 2-2 with Nottingham Forest at The Hawthorns last time out, with Leeds clawing back two points after their win over Bristol City.

Before last Saturday’s draw with Sabri Lamouchi’s Forest, the Baggies had won three league matches in a row, seeing off Luton Town, Millwall and Reading. Prior to those hat-trick of victories, Slaven Bilic’s boys had gone seven Championship matches without a win, drawing four and losing three.

West Brom have the best away record in the Championship to this point. Albion have been superb away from The Hawthorns, winning ten of 17 fixtures. Also, just Leeds and Cardiff City have picked up home wins over the Baggies this term. Will the leaders secure an 11th away victory of the season on Saturday?
