Tip Reasoning

  • Bristol City have won just one home game this season, against second-bottom Barnsley, and have kept just one home clean sheet, against Preston.
  • Stoke sit 4th in the table, and have won their last two away games by a goal to nil.
  • The Potters have won their last 3 league games without conceding.

Stoke Bounce Back After Difficult October

Michael O’Neill’s Stoke City look to be genuine contenders for a return to the Premier League after 3 seasons away. The Potters endured a difficult run of 3 losses and a draw during October, but have bounced back with three successive wins (and clean sheets) against Blackpool, Luton, and Peterborough.

The Potters initially relied heavily on their home form, winning just 1 of their first 7 away games this season, but consecutive 1-0 away victories over top-half opposition may suggest that they’ve turned the corner on the road.

Robins’ Struggles to Continue?

The last international break saw speculation around Nigel Pearson’s position as Bristol City manager, with the Robins languishing in the lower reaches of the Championship. Though his team performed well in their weekend draw with Blackburn, they had won 1 and lost 5 of their previous 6 matches. The Robins’ best showings of an underwhelming season have come on the road, and they have only tasted victory once at Ashton Gate this campaign, against struggling Barnsley.

With Stoke bouncing back impressively from a dismal October, I’m backing the Potters to continue their quest for at least a playoff place with a midweek away win in this clash.

It should definitely be tight, however; Bristol City’s 9 home league matches have seen them score just 7 goals and concede 10, while none of Stoke’s last 6 away games has been decided by more than a one goal margin. As a result, 1-0 to the visitors looks a decent correct score prediction.
