Ivan Toney 17/20 to score anytime against Bristol City in Saturday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: Ivan Toney to score anytime

Odds: 17/20 @ 888sport

Looking to keep up their momentum heading into the play-offs, Brentford will make the trip to a downbeat Ashton Gate on Saturday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while Bristol City might have opened the 2020/21 campaign with a play-off spot on their agenda, it has been a nightmare run of form for The Robins. Only freefalling their way down the table and lucky to have not been dragged into a late relegation scrap, Nigel Pearson’s side were last seen putting in another dreadful display last weekend. Eventually blown away thanks to a 4-1 drumming at the hands of Millwall in South London, the former Leicester boss has come under real scrutiny at Ashton Gate. Also suffering back-to-back defeats at the hands of Luton and soon-to-be relegated Wycombe, Bristol City have lost their last three Championship contests on the spin, shipping nine goals. Facing a stern test on Saturday lunchtime, it should also be noted that The Robins have failed to win any of their last nine straight contests.

As for the visitors, already wrapping up a third-place finish and their spot in the play-offs with time to spare, Brentford have continued on a real purple patch. Despite being left frustrated by missing out on a top-two finish once again this year, Thomas Frank’s side are enjoying an extended 11-match unbeaten run. In fact, landing an eye-catching 2-0 win against an already promoted Watford last weekend, The Bees have won their last three Championship matchups on the spin. Looking to keep their momentum at a high on their travels, it is well worth keeping an eye out for leading marksman Ivan Toney on Saturday lunchtime. Once again finding the net against Watford last time out, the former Peterborough striker has recorded 30 second-tier strikes this season and has wrapped up the Golden Boot. Also getting himself on the scoresheet against Bristol City earlier in the season, we’re backing another fruitful afternoon for Toney.
