MATCH PREVIEW

Robins Aim to Get Back on Track

Bristol City are second in the Championship after the midweek fixtures. They are only behind the league leaders Reading by three points and host sixth placed Swansea City. However, they need to get back on track after losing 1-0 at home to Middlesbrough on Tuesday evening.

City are spending their sixth season in the Championship since winning promotion. The best finishing place they have achieved is eighth in the 2018/19 season. Last season saw them finish in 12th place, seven points behind the promotion play-off positions. A disappointing end as they had been in the top six earlier in the year. City only earned nine points from their last ten league games, hence the slump.

This season has seen them back in form though. They won their first four games with wins over Coventry City and Sheffield Wednesday at home and away victories at Stoke City and Nottingham Forest. Their winning start came to an end when drawing 2-2 at Barnsley. If it's a close finish this season (it usually is), they'll remember that match. City led twice and then conceded a 102nd minute penalty.

That must have cheesed them off as Tuesday saw them beaten by Middlesbrough, without a shot on target. Now they host Swansea, who they failed to score against in two league games last season. They drew 0-0 at home but lost 1-0 on their travels. Five of their last seven home league games have had under 2.5 goals scored in them, a stat that may well come up again this weekend.

Swans Failing to Build on Good Start

Swansea City are in a similar position to their rivals. They also got off to a good start this season earning ten points from their first four league games. City lost in the promotion play-offs last term but their good start eased some of that pain. They made some good signings on transfer deadline day, though City did lose the services of Joe Roden who's now at Tottenham.

Then it started to go wrong for them with a run of one point from two games. The weekend saw them lose their unbeaten record being beaten 2-1 at home by Huddersfield Town. Their midweek fixture saw them travel to Coventry City and they had to come from behind to get a 1-1 draw.

Andre Ayew is in good form though with three league goals so far. A bet on him scoring anytime in this match looks a reasonable one to make, especially as he's their penalty-taker. Away form for Swansea lose only three out of 15 away matches (one, a play-off semi-final to Brentford). Both teams have scored in six of their last eight away league/play-off matches. Definitely a bet to consider this weekend. 

The draw at Coventry was their seventh on the road this year. Of those games, only one was goalless and that was the first trip of the year. Both teams need a win but a bet on a draw looks a good one to make with both teams scoring.
