      Bristol City vs Blackburn Predictions

      Blackburn are now unbeaten in 5 matches in the league and are up to 14th as a result. They are 6 points above the bottom three but 7 points shy of the top six and mid-table safety might be about their natural standing this term.

      They are probably a bit short on quality to mount a serious bid for a play-off place but with Jordan Rhodes still firing in the goals, Lambert has an outlet and if he can get the rest of the team organised they could prove stubborn opposition for many sides in this league.

      Bristol City have threatened to pull away from the relegation dog-fight at times and have put in some impressive showings but just when you think they’ve turned the corner they are hit by another damaging setback. The Robins had conceded just 1 goal in 3 unbeaten matches when they headed to relegation threatened Rotherham last weekend but put in another inept display and sank to a crushing 3-0 defeat.

      It leaves them just 1 point above the relegation zone and they have only won 3 matches all season, a record that is the worst in the league besides bottom club Bolton. They have been beaten 4 times at Ashton Gate already and with Blackburn in-form and having taken 7 points from their last 3 away games, the visitors look good value at 5/6 in the ‘draw no bet’ market here.

      Only Rotherham have a worse defensive record than Bristol City and they’ve conceded twice or more in 5 of their 9 home games. Therefore consider backing Blackburn to win 2-1 at 9/1 here.
