Bristol City 11/10 to beat Derby in Saturday’s Championship matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: Bristol City win

Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport

With a real chance to pile even more pressure onto Derby this weekend, Bristol City will welcome the Rams to Ashton Gate on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Bristol City might have endured a difficult end to October, the Robins have managed to bounce back and still find themselves sat in the play-off spots. Last seen before the November international break securing back-to-back victories against Cardiff and Huddersfield, Dean Holden’s new squad should also be boosted by what is a rampant record against Saturday’s opponents. Smelling what is a golden opportunity to potentially break into the automatic spots this weekend, City secured a 3-2 win against Derby when the two sides faced off at Ashton Gate back in February. in fact, the Robins have won each of their last three straight meetings against the Rams.

As for the visitors, partying ways with Philip Coco last week and heading into November’s international break with a woeful 2-0 defeat against Barnsley at Pride Park, Derby are a club really in the midst of a crisis. Now in a race to find someone to fill their vacancy in the dugout, the Rams mark their return to action this weekend sat rock-bottom of the table and many fearing for their future. Hit with back-to-back Championship defeats earlier in the month and now failing to win any of their last seven second-tier contests on the bounce, it should also be noted that Derby are yet to record more than a single goal in any outing so far this season. Given their dreadful record against Saturday’s hosts, we’re backing another tough outing for the Whites.
