Team News: Bristol City
The Bristol City manager Nigel Pearson does not have any fitness worries to speak of before this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: Plymouth Argyle
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group, there’s just the one fitness problem for the Plymouth Argyle manager Steven Schumacher to contend with. Michael Cooper (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We’re thinking that Plymouth Argyle should get enough chances to find the back of the net against this Bristol City side, but that probably shouldn’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We can see a 2-1 victory for Bristol City at the end of the 90 minutes. Hopefully this is a good one.
