Match preview

A Bristol City outfit fresh off a timely return to form will act as hosts, in a Championship showdown with an off-colour Blackburn Rovers side on Saturday, January 21st.

Bristol, after a run of just one win from 12 across all competitions, have managed to get things firmly back on track over the course of the last week.

First, goals on the part of all of Antoine Semenyo, Nahki Wells and Mark Sykes (2) guided the Robins to a 4-2 league downing of Birmingham City.

This result, in turn, guided Nigel Pearson’s troops a full six points clear of the bottom three in England’s 2nd tier.

Then, in midweek, Bristol City kept the club’s FA Cup campaign alive and kicking, too.

After being forced to a replay owing to an initial stalemate at Ashton Gate, the Robins sent Swansea City packing from English football’s most famed cup competition, courtesy of a Sam Bell winner deep into extra time.

Safe to say, then, that Pearson and co. will head into Saturday’s action quietly confident in their chances of clinching a result.

This comes with upcoming opponents Blackburn, despite their vastly superior position in the table, having enjoyed an altogether less fruitful stretch of form of late.

En route to keeping alive their bizarre record as the only club in the Championship without a single draw on their record, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s men have fallen to defeat in three of their last four.

The most recent, meanwhile, came in nothing short of alarming fashion.

After making the trip to a Rotherham outfit battling hard against the drop, Rovers were put to the sword by a whopping four goals to nil, to set alarm bells ringing at Ewood Park.

After spending much of the campaign to date boasting the title of best of the rest behind runaway top two Burnley and Sheffield United, Blackburn, in turn, have slipped to 5th in the table.

Saturday’s Ashton Gate clash therefore looks an altogether difficult one to call.

We at 101 have therefore opted for the form books, backing Bristol City to ultimately emerge on the right side of the scoreline.
