Stoke City vs Bristol City betting tips
Stoke City vs Bristol City match preview
Two sides separated by just a solitary place in the Championship table are set to lock horns at The Bet365 Stadium this Friday, April 7th.
The matchup in question will see Stoke City act as hosts, in a meeting with Bristol City.
Beginning with the former, Stoke are fresh off solidifying themselves as one of the most in-form sides in England’s 2nd tier last weekend.
The Potters, all told, have seen out their last five fixtures without defeat.
This stretch includes a pair of impressive draws, against promotion-chasing pair Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City.
Even more head-turning, though, were a 5-1 drubbing of Sunderland at the Stadium of Light and, most recently, a four-goal triumph at Coventry City.
Such stellar efforts, all told, have culminated in Alex Neil’s troops surging clear of the relegation scrap, to 13th in the Championship standings.
Turning attentions towards Friday’s visitors to The Bet365, Bristol City have found positive results altogether more difficult to come by of late.
The Robins, for their part, have managed just a solitary win from their last seven across all competitions.
Their last three league outings, meanwhile, have given rise to just a solitary point.
And even this haul came last weekend, when a meeting with a Reading outfit now clear of the bottom three by just a point saw Nigel Pearson’s men surrender a first-half advantage, en route to an eventual 1-1 stalemate.
Bristol City, as a result, have fallen off the pace of the top half, now sitting a spot below Stoke in 14th.
We at 101, in turn, view Friday’s west Midlands clash as one of the more straightforward to call when it comes to the upcoming slate of Championship fixtures, viewing hosts Stoke as overwhelming favourites to ultimately emerge on the right side of the result.
