Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365
Two sides who find themselves in the midst of their own struggles, relegation scrappers Hull will travel to an empty Ashton Gate on Wednesday evening.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another torrid display over the weekend and hit with a 1-0 defeat at home against Cardiff, Bristol City have decided to part ways with Lee Johnson after what has been a woeful second half of the campaign. Freefalling away from the play-offs and now on the verge of dropping out of the top-12, the Robins have lost their last four Championship matchups on the spin and have continued to show some glaring issues at the back. Including a 3-1 drumming at the hands of Blackburn when returning from the enforced break, the Reds have now failed to record a single clean sheet since February 1st. Also in the midst of a four-match losing run on home soil, the managerless Robins are a squad in desperate need of a morale boost.
As for the visitors, hit with the most dramatic of 4-2 defeat away at title-chasers West Brom over the weekend, it appears that Hull’s victory against Middlesbrough last week could have been an ever so minor bounce. Holding just a one-point buffer from slipping back into the drop zone, the Tigers have remarkably managed to land just a single Championship win since New Year’s Day, a 15-match run. Shipping a quartet of strikes in the Midlands on Sunday, there is no doubt that Hull’s continued issues at the back will be giving Grant McCann the biggest headache. Including what turned out to be a stunning 3-3 draw at St. Andrew’s last month, Hull have now shipped a staggering 18 goals in just their last six appearances either side of the break. With five of the last six meetings between the two sides seeing both teams find the net, we’re backing a similar outcome in midweek.
