Team News: Bristol City
Due to a mostly available group of players, there is just the lone fitness issue for the Bristol City boss Nigel Pearson to contend with. Andreas Weimann (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here. Rene Gilmartin will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
In our opinion, Bristol City should have enough to score a goal against this Coventry City lineup, but that possibly won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re tipping a close game with a 2-1 winning score for Coventry City when the full-time whistle blows. It should be a decent one.
