Stoke City Preview – Can Stoke enjoy a better campaign?

The early signs already look promising for Stoke City under manager, Michael O’Neill, as The Potters have lost just once out of their first six matches of this new season which includes pre-season friendlies but also a point away from home at The Den in a 0-0 draw against Millwall in last weekend’s season-opener, along with a midweek 1-0 win at Molineux over Premier League Wolves in the League Cup.

When O’Neill took over the reigns at the bet365 Stadium, Stoke were sitting bottom of the Championship but the hosts made slow but steady progress under the Irish manager and ultimately achieved a creditable 15th place finish at the end of last term, finishing eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Under O’Neill’s guidance, Stoke tightened up at the back and results followed as The Potters lost just two of their final 13 matches at home; this included no fewer than eight clean sheets while eight of these last 13 matches also resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Bristol City Preview – Can Bristol City maintain play-off push?

Bristol City’s campaign in the Championship last season was almost the exact opposite to their visitors, Stoke City’s, as The Robins looked to be challenging for a top six finish for a large part of last term until they suffered a disappointing sequence of results from mid-February through to early July (lockdown in-between), which saw Bristol city fail to win any of their nine matches during this period.

A run of four defeats resulted in the sacking of former manager, Lee Johnson, and Dean Holden took over the reigns, prompting a revival in fortunes with City losing just one of their final five matches of the season.

The Robins have made a winning start to this new season in the Championship with a 2-1 home win over Coventry City, along with League Cup wins against Exeter City and Northampton Town, all of which have been at Ashton Gate – seven of Bristol City’s last 10 away matches also resulted in under 2.5 goals.
