Bristol City vs Middlesbrough Match Preview
Bristol City made it three league victories in a row with a 3-1 road success at Hull at the weekend which took them to ten points. They have had a whole week having crashed out of the League Cup on penalties in the previous round.
At Ashton Gate, the Robins have played twice this season going down at home to Leeds and then beating QPR. Benik Afobe scored in the previous home fixture and the on-loan striker has three from his last three.
Middlesbrough stretched their unbeaten league run to two games with a 1-1 draw against Millwall but they were fortunate to do so. They are another side who went out of the League Cup in the opening round and have also not played in midweek.
Away from the Riverside, Boro have managed just one point from their two trips which saw them draw at Luton and lose at Blackburn. Three of the four they have conceded on their travels have come in the opening 25 minutes.
Bristol City look a solid bet here to come out with all three points in a meeting of two sides who look set to finish in different halves of the table this season. The Robins have won three straight and are flying and while Boro are unbeaten in two they should have lost to Millwall last weekend and look a work in progress under Woodgate. The hosts are flying and the vistors have a habit of conceding early goals so back the Bristol City HT Bristol City FT option also.
