Bristol City double chance against Watford 4/6 for Wednesday’s Championship showdown

Competition: Championship

Market: Bristol City double chance

Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport

Looking to upset the odds at Ashton Gate in midweek, Bristol City will host an inconsistent Watford from behind closed doors on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, although Bristol City might have really struggled when drawing a close to October, Dean Holden’s new squad have really managed to bounce back. Impressing either side of the international break and still firmly battling it out in the top-two chase, the Robins were last seen over the weekend when picking up a deserved late 1-0 victory against Championship strugglers Derby on home soil. Managing to land back-to-back clean sheets and with at least a play-off finish at the top of their agenda, Bristol City find themselves enjoying a three-match winning run in November, a run highlighted by a victory over fellow top-six dreamers Cardiff. Smelling what will be a real chance to upset the odds at Ashton Gate on Wednesday night, the Robins know that three points in midweek and results elsewhere could see them head into the weekend sat top of the table.

As for the visitors, while Watford might have marked their Championship return over the summer seen as a leading contender to book an immediate Premier League return, the Hornets have largely flattered to deceive so far this season. Throwing away the lead across London at QPR on Saturday afternoon, Vladimir Ivić’s men had to settle for a point on their travels and have now managed to win just a pair of their last six second-tier contests on the spin. A side that is desperately seeking some stability, Ivić will be most concerned by his side’s extended issues while away from Vicarage Road. Including a shock 1-0 loss away at Barnsley, Watford have won just one of their last seven contests on the road, a run that also saw them crash out of the EFL Cup thanks to a 3-1 defeat against Newport County.
