Plymouth travel to face Bristol City in a Championship encounter at Ashton Gate on Tuesday.

Bristol City rank ten with nine points to their name from six matches, while visitors Plymouth rank 13 in the table on seven points.

Bristol City are looking for a payback after suffering a disappointing defeat in their latest encounter with Plymouth and odds favour them to pull it off.

Bristol City scored ten times in the last ten outings for an average of one goals a game. They conceded nine and managed three clean sheets.

Plymouth travel to their next Championship match, averaging a lowly one goals per game in their last ten matches. They scored a disappointing total of ten goals, while also conceding 15 goals. That amounts to an average of 1.5 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring two times.

Bristol City lost to 3-2 Plymouth in their last encounter. This served as payback for the 3-1 win, which Bristol City dished out the match before that.

Bristol City vs Plymouth Prediction

Bristol City Form

In their last three matches, Bristol City lost 0-1 against Norwich, won 1-2 against Swansea, before drawing 0-0 against West Bromwich. Bristol City only managed one meagre home win from a possible six at Ashton Gate in the Championship. They also drew three and lost two of these six encounters, in which they scored six and conceded eight goals.

Bristol City’s priority for this season will be to stay clear of the relegation zone, while challenging for a spot in the upper half of the Championship.

Plymouth Form

Plymouth are currently a little too inconsistent for their own good. Against Crystal Palace, they lost 2-4, before winning 3-0 against Blackburn. They came out on the losing end once again in a 2-1 defeat against Preston. In their last six Championship away matches, Plymouth failed to win more than once. In stead, they've drawn one and lost four, scoring four while also conceding nine times.

Plymouth seem a little too thin in quality to stay in this division, and they will most likely be embroiled in a battle to avoid relegation from the Championship for much of the season.

Neither Bristol City nor Plymouth have been experts at maintaining a clean sheet in recent matches. We count on both to continue this trend and bank on both being able to score a goal.

Bristol City took six points from their last two encounters with teams from the bottom half of the Championship table. This amounts to two wins after scoring three times and conceding one. Bristol City enjoy a record of two wins, three draws and one defeat in the Championship this season. Plymouth only drew once so far this season after six games played, in stead recording two wins and three defeats in the Championship.
