Blackburn v Bristol City Preview
Blackburn will be looking to bounce back from a 5-2 defeat at Brentford last time out which put to an end a four-game winning run in the league. They sit 11th in the table five places and four points off their opponents here who are sixth.
At Ewood Park, it is three straight victories for the Lancashire outfit who have netted seven times and conceded just once in this spell. All seven of these goals came from a different player.
Bristol City are now 11 unbeaten in the Championship with each of their last five seeing them take maximum points. They have kept clean sheets in four of their last five while netting eight times.
Away from Ashton Gate, City are flying with no defeat in five and four of these seeing them come out on top. Famara Diedhiou is doing well on the road having netted four in his last five appearances.
Blackburn are tough home opponents having lost just twice this season while Bristol City have won four of their last five on the road. Bookmakers are having trouble splitting the pair and of the three options I would lean to the draw but believe better value can be found in other places.
The visitors have seen 19 of their 30 games be level going into the break which is a league high so backing the game to be level at half-time looks a sensible approach. In addition, with both sides scoring over 60% of their goals after the interval I like a bet on the second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring half.
