Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts have witnessed at least three goals in five of their last seven games.
  • Bristol City have seen at least three goals in all of their previous nine matches.
  • The reverse league fixture finished with three goals being scored.

Playoffs in sight for the hosts

The hosts were held to a goalless draw away to Preston North End during the week but they’ll remain hopeful they can propel themselves into the playoff places and be in with a chance of getting to the top-flight for the first time since 1999. Steve Cooper’s side have lost just one of their last nine games and they’ll feel they can make home advantage count by beating the leagues’ entertainers on Saturday.

The ‘Robins’ conceded in the 89th minute to lose 2-1 to Coventry City at Ashton Gate during the week and it continued a constant theme in which games involving Bristol City see at least three goals. That match marked the ninth time in a row that they have witnessed over 2.5 goals land and it’s largely been due to their poor defence, who’ve not kept a clean sheet across any of their previous 13 league matches ahead of this game. Any chance of a playoff spot is more than likely beyond reach but they’ll want to stop the rot here.

Goals aplenty in Nottingham

The visitors’ matches this season have been synonymous with goals and we think it will go the same way here. The hosts will be desperate to add another three points to their tally but are sometimes suspect at the back themselves. With Bristol City forgetting what a clean sheet feels like, we fancy the overs to land once again here.
