Betting Tip: @ Derby to win @ 21/20 with betvictor

Bristol City have lost their previous five games, something which might suggest to the untrained eye that the wheels are falling off at Ashton Gate.

However, the Robins have been facing difficult opponents that include Championship leaders Wolves, Premier League leaders Manchester City and another top flight team in the form of Watford.

The FA Cup clash against the Hornets wasn’t a game of big interest due to EFL Cup involvement against Manchester United and then City, although this appears to be serving as a distraction to Championship results.

Saturday’s 1-0 reverse at home to Norwich City represents a big setback to Lee Johnson and his team getting promoted automatically and the target might quickly become making sure they remain in the play-off places.

The most worrying scoreline of the previous five was a 5-0 spanking at the hands of Aston Villa, with thirteen goals now conceded in the past five matches and Johnson will be looking for a tighter defence on Friday night.

A trip to Derby looks like a daunting prospect considering that the Rams are flying under Gary Rowett and they made short work of Birmingham last weekend when winning 3-0.

Rowett has produced the goods very quickly at the iPro Stadium, with the Midlands side sitting second in the Championship and with a very real chance of getting promoted.

County have won eight of their thirteen matches at home this season, with Burton, Aston Villa and Millwall all put to the sword, although Sheffield United did land a point.

Even so, Matej Vydra continues to score goals and the defence continues to be rock solid which means we’re happy to back Derby at odds-against.
