The Championship tie at Ashton Gate this coming Tuesday sees home team Bristol City up against Coventry. Coventry beat Bristol City twice in their most recent meetings, as they claimed wins by 2-1 and 3-2, respectively.

Bristol City approach round 13 as number 12 in the Championship table with 14 points on their account so far. With 11 rounds behind them, Coventry have amassed six points, placing them as number 24 in the standings.

Bristol City are chasing revenge after succumbing to a disappointing defeat in the latest encounter against Coventry. Judging by prices from the bookmakers, they stand a good chance of pulling it off.

Bristol City vs Coventry Prediction

Bristol City endured a tough spell in their previous three matches, which brought three defeats. They lost 3-2 against Norwich, before Burnley won 2-1, while Queens P.R. claimed all three points in a 1-2 win. Bristol City managed a strong return of four wins from their previous six matches on home soil in the Championship. They drew none though, while losing twice in this series. They scored 14 goals and conceded five times.

Few people saw Bristol City at the fun end of the table this season, but they are displaying a great form right now.

Coventry look solid currently after going three matches unbeaten, which started by drawing 2-2 against Luton. They followed that up by sharing the spoils with Birmingham in a 0-0 draw, before taking out Middlesbrough in a 1-0 win. Coventry are winless in their last six away games in the Championship, in which they drew three and lost three. They conceded 12 goals while scoring seven themselves.

Coventry entered the season dreaming of medals, but find themselves far off track following a lousy run of form.

It seems both Coventry and Bristol City have some issues concerning their defence, as they seem to find themselves on the receiving end a bit too often lately. We believe the trend continues this coming Tuesday, and we are rooting for goals.
