Bristol City News and Form – Will the Robins extend unbeaten run to five matches?

Before the international break, Bristol City picked up an excellent 1-0 Severnside derby victory at the Cardiff City Stadium. The Robins became the first team to win in South Wales in the Championship this season, with Josh Brownhills’s second-half thunderbolt strike doing the business in the Welsh capital.

Only leaders West Bromwich Albion have taken more away points than the Robins so far, but Lee Johnson’s men have picked up just three home league wins. However, since losing to Leeds United on the opening weekend, City are unbeaten in six on their own patch, winning three and drawing three.

Draw: Bristol City have played a game more, but the pair have both taken 28 points so far this season. The Robins have won seven, drawn seven and lost just twice, while Forest have picked up eight wins, drawn four times and suffered three losses. The Reds are only ahead of the Robins on goal difference. This is an extremely tough one to call, so have a punt on the draw and both teams to score at 10/3.

Veteran Lewis Grabban has scored an impressive seven Championship goals so far this season. The 31-year-old netted the all-important winner in the East Midlands derby last time out, and he will be eager to get his name on the scoresheet again at the weekend. Grabban is available at 7/4 to score anytime in this clash.
