Bristol City vs Hull City
English League Championship
Date: Wednesday, 24th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate (Bristol).
Hull City travels to Bristol searching for points and hoping to get out of the relegation zone. That’s a hard task but the team hopes for the best.
Bristol City were in the playoffs at some point of the season but now occupies 10th place. Still The Robins are quite close to the 6th place as just 2 points separate them. The team looks organized defensively but sometimes struggles to finish their games off. On top of that the team rotates series of strong performances and disappointing runs.
Bristol returned to winning ways on Saturday. They had a tough visit to Brentford and with a bit of luck they managed to take all the points. Mepham made things easier for them by getting second yellow even before the hour mark. The Robins eventually won as Eliasson scored minutes before the final whistle.
Hull City have been disappointing ever since they go relegated from the Premier League. The team struggles to find their style and has particular issues with their defensive organization. On top of that on the other end of the pitch things are not rosy either. Hull needs a lot of improvement just to get out of the relegation zone.
Hull failed to win again on Saturday. They had a home game against fellow relegation rivals Preston. The game was going all the way down to a boring goalless draw when suddenly 5 minutes before the end both teams managed to score. Instead of a 0-0 draw the game finished 1-1 but it was evident both sides are not at their best.
