Bristol City vs Swansea Bet Builder selections
Bristol City to win
After winning 3-2 at Reading in midweek Bristol City should be coming into this clash full of confidence. They’ve got a fantastic record in this fixture, losing only one of their previous 12 clashes with the Swans. Given that the Welsh side have lost two of their opening three league games this term.
Both teams to score
Bristol City are worthy favourites in my eyes, but I expect both sides to find joy here. Swansea have scored in both their defeats this term and the Robins come into this one having seen their last eight league games finish with both teams scoring.
Chris Martin to score
Martin has started this campaign in fine form, having scored in two of his first three league games this term. The former Derby man is a huge physical presence up top and we’re backing him to cause problems for a leaky Swans defence.
Andreas Weimann 1+ shots on target
Bristol City’s Weimann was key against Reading, scoring twice in the win. The former Aston Villa man is a big threat going forward, having averaged 0.9 shots on target per game across last term. He’s averraged 2.3 shots per game this season so far, so back him to trouble the Swans.
Jay Fulton to be booked
Our final pick is on Swans midfielder Fulton to find himself in trouble. He’s been a regular nuisance for referees at this level, having picked up 19 yellow cards across the last two Championship campaigns. Fulton hasn’t been booked in the new campaign, but with his track record you imagine it won’t be long before he is.
