BRISTOL CITY - BLACKPOOL
City are on a very impressive run, they have won 6 from 7, only failing away to Doncaster Rovers and that was simply a blip, they were never "at the races" that day, yet still could/should have collected something after conceding very early and they have since bounced back with a very fine 2-0 win away to Reading. That was an awesome display, in front of 4,500 travelling supporters. This is a club on the up, they have just purchased a large piece of land and are waiting to start work on a new, potentially 40,000 capacity stadium and training complex. They certainly do not want to be playing Championship football there.
The recent run has seen them climb into the playoff picture, but that is their minimum ambition, they currently trail Birmingham City, who sit in a automatic promotion spot by eight points, but travel to st Andrews on Wednesday and a win for the Robins today, will set that meeting up nicely. Today's visitors to Ashton Gate are struggling and have conceded ten goals in their last four starts, collecting just a single point at Ipswich and they were very fortunate to get that. DJ Campbell aside, they lack a real offensive threat at the moment and until caretaker boss Tony Parkes has a few more attacking options avaible, we should be avoiding a team with such a porous defence.
7 points Bristol City -3/4 ball 2.02 asian line.
