Bristol City vs Burton Albion
English Football League Championship
Date: Saturday, 4th March 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium.
Bristol City got wrapped up in the relegation scrap after a series of poor results and they just can’t afford a failure against bottom half rivals Burton Albion.
The visitors did manage to escape the danger zone with a couple of decent results lately, but the battle for survival is still ongoing for Nigel Clough and his men.
The Robins are winless in last five league matches which leaves them just a single position above the line.
The team had a pretty rough schedule over the last couple of weeks as they faced Leeds United, Fulham, Newcastle United and Aston Villa in last four outings conceding at least two goals in each of the fixtures.
Luckily for Lee Johnson, the Brewers are not the best attacking side of the league and Bristol can finally have hopes of keeping the clean sheet.
Nigel Clough can be quite happy with the defensive displays his team has been showing recently since Burton have only a single loss in last five league fixtures.
Bristol City vs Burton Albion: Head to head
August’s match was the first ever between the two sides. Bristol City were more successful snatching a 1-2 away win at Pirelli thanks to a brace from their best scorer Tammy Abraham.
Bristol City vs Burton Albion: Prediction
Abraham skipped the last couple of matches due to injury troubles which is the main reason for the fact Bristol are now on the brink of the danger zone.
The hosts will have to look for the victory which would level them with the Brewers in the Championship standings. With Tammy Abraham back in the squad and with the huge imperative, we can see them picking up a huge three-pointer here.
