Tip Reasoning

  • Bristol City have conceded at least two goals in two of their last three home Championship games.
  • Blackburn have scored at least two goals in three of their last four Championship matches.
  • At home, Bristol City have the second-highest xG against of all Championship clubs (1.59).
  • Ben Brereton has scored six goals in his last eight Championship appearances away from home.

Brereton can bag against Bristol City

Blackburn Rovers will fancy their chances of scoring against one of the Championship’s most out-of-form sides when they face Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Saturday.

Rovers, who have drawn both of their matches following the previous two international breaks this season 2-2, tallied seven goals in their last four matches – drawing their only blank at home to Fulham when reduced to ten men after 30 minutes.

Tony Mowbray’s side have scored twice in two of their last four away league games and can do so again this weekend if 13-goal top scorer Ben Brereton is firing on all cylinders.

The striker returned from South America earlier than expected after his international commitments with Chile were cut short because of suspension, so he has been able to pack in extra training with his teammates ahead of the trip to Bristol.

Robins’ results remain ropey as Pearson absence continues 

One man who is likely to miss the Ashton Gate clash is Nigel Pearson, who is again expected to be absent this weekend because of a Covid-19-related condition.

The Robins have lost two of their three games in their manager’s prolonged absence while their overall form in recent weeks has been alarming, losing six of their last eight league fixtures.

Blackburn could take full advantage and the three points back with them to Lancashire, but we find their overall away form this season too patchy to trust for the main bet. Bristol City have only scored more than once in one of their eight home games to date while Rovers have only kept one asway clean sheet, so a 2-1 correct score play could have value here too.
