Bristol City vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 14th December 15.00pm

Lee Johnson’s Bristol City fell to a disappointing home defeat to Millwall in the EFL Championship in midweek. Can the Robins hit back with three points when Tony Mowbray’s in-form Blackburn Rovers make the trip to Ashton Gate this Saturday? Rovers are in fine fettle, but City are the favourites in this one. In truth, though, this weekend’s clash could go either way in Bristol.

Bristol City News and Form – Will the Robins bounce back?

Lee Johnson’s Bristol City have made a good start to their season, winning nine of 21 games to take 35 points from a possible 63. The Robins have netted 34 goals along the way, with just West Bromwich Albion scoring more up until now.

A week ago, the Robins secured a sensational away win at Fulham. Goals from Josh Brownhill and Famara Diedhiou helped City to a 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage. Unfortunately, they followed that up with a poor 2-1 home loss to Millwall in midweek.

Just like several teams in this season’s Championship, Bristol City’s ultimate goal will be a play-off spot. At the time of writing, the Robins are fourth in the table, level on points with third place Fulham, but 11 points behind joint leaders Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion. Can City get that winning feeling back this weekend?

Blackburn Rovers News and Form – Rovers to maintain unbeaten streak?

Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn Rovers have gone under the radar this season. The Blue and Whites are currently in tenth position in the Championship table, three points away from the top six. A win on Saturday would take them to within a point of Bristol City.

Mowbray’s boys head into this one having won five of their last seven. That’s quite some turnaround, as Rovers had failed to win in six (two draws, four defeats) before then. Since narrowly losing at Elland Road, Blackburn have taken 13 points from the last 15 on offer. Before last Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, Rovers had won four in a row.

In-form Blackburn are more than capable of giving Bristol City problems this weekend. The bookies have the away side priced at 12/5 to get the win at Ashton Gate.

Bristol City vs Blackburn Rovers Predictions

Draw: Bristol City will be desperate to hit back after midweek’s shock result. The Robins were just not at the races against Millwall, falling to their first home defeat since losing to Leeds on the opening weekend of the season. Nonetheless, they certainly have the ability in their squad to strike back on Saturday.

Having said that, Blackburn have been one of the best sides in the division over the past month or so, turning themselves into genuine top six candidates. I fancy Rovers to leave Ashton Gate with a point this weekend. The draw is available at the decent odds of 12/5. I also think each side will notch at Ashton Gate, so back the draw and both teams to score at 10/3.
