Tip Reasoning

  • Bristol City have won back to back league matches 1-3 since the appointment of new manager Nigel Pearson.
  • Bournemouth have claimed just one point from their last four away trips in the Championship.
  • The visitors have failed to score in just one of their last seven league matches, while the hosts haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last ten Championship outings.

City overpriced after immediate Pearson impact

Bristol City have made a flying start under new boss Nigel Pearson and the Robins are the clear value call in the betting for their midweek home fixture against Bournemouth.

57 year-old Pearson has already established a fine reputation for being one of the best impact managers in the Football League and he’s influenced a major response from the City squad just days into taking the hotseat at Ashton Gate.

The Robins lost six league matches on the bounce prior to Pearson’s arrival yet have notched back to back 1-3 away victories in the last week, beating two promotion hopefuls in the shape of Middlesbrough and Swansea City.

Based on their sharp upturn in form and the fact that Bournemouth have picked up just one point from their last four away trips, we feel the hosts merit some interest here at a huge price.

City have failed to keep a clean sheet on their last ten games though and that’s factored into our 2-1 correct score prediction, with the visitors also managing to net in all but one of their last seven league fixtures.
