Charlton vs Bristol City Prediction

Charlton shared the spoils last week on the road with QPR  after both teams managed to score two goals apiece. The hosts almost made the trip back home empty-handed in that latter matchup though, as they were trailing by a goal towards the end of regulation time.

However, a last gasp equalizer from Mouhamadou-Naby Sarr ensured that the home team carried a point with them.

Miserably, Charlton are without a win in the Championship since late October. At the moment, they are sitting eighteenth on the ladder, and are closer to falling into the relegation zone than they are in catching up with Bristol City.

On the other hand, the visitors have been hit a sharp decline in-form themselves. They have not come out on top in any of their past three fixtures on the trot, the most recent of which saw them lose 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday, on the road.

Be that as it may, the guests have stumbled just three times away from home this season. And have also picked up the win in half of their past four outings.

In sharp contrast, Charlton have been dropping points in their last five clashes at home. Taking into account that they were at the losing end of a 1-0 scorecard when they last locked horns with this foe here as well, Bristol City are the front runners to bag all three points this week.

However, considering that the visitors have been held to a draw five times already on the road, the safest punt in this one would have to be a Draw no Bet.

Furthermore, the visitors have been guilty of possessing a leaky backline. Disappointingly, they have kept a clean sheet just once on the road this season.

Meanwhile, Charlton have scored five goals from their last four games here. Half of their past four h2h meetings at this venue have also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together.

Hence although a win is out of the question for the hosts, count on them to at least get their names on the scoresheet along with Bristol City this Thursday.
