Bristol City News

Bristol City claimed a massive three points in their battle against relegation after defeating Milton Keynes Dons’ 2-0 away from home last weekend and the victory was the third on the trot for the Robins.

New manager Lee Johnson seems to be taking Bristol City to different heights and he will be keen on his side gathering on from their momentum from the last few weeks by claiming another good result when Brighton and Hove Albion pay a visit to the Ashton Gate Stadium on Tuesday night.

Bristol City Probable Lineup: R. O’Donnell, S. Golbourne, A. Flint, N. Baker, Z. Vyner, K. Smith, M. Pack, J. Bryan, L. Tomlin, J. Kodjia, L. Freeman

Brighton and Hove Albion News

Brighton and Hove Albion missed out on a wonderful opportunity to move into one of the automatic promotion places last weekend after suffering an embarrassing 4-1 defeat against Cardiff City and the result could potentially mean that Chris Hughton’s men’s chances of finishing is all but over.

There are still a lot of games to be played though and Hughton will be urging his players to get back on track in midweek when they travel to Ashton Gate to lock horns against an in form Bristol City side, in what should be a tricky encounter for the Seagulls once again.

Brighton and Hove Albion Probable Lineup: D. Stockdale, Bruno Saltor, L. Rosenior, L. Dunk, C. Goldson, T. Hemed, A. Crofts, D. Stephens, J. Skalák, B. Zamora, A. Knockaert

Prediction

Bristol City have not beaten Brighton in their last five encounters and despite their stunning recent run of form, the home side will have to be considered underdogs heading into Tuesday night’s encounter.

That said, one can expect a very tight match on the night and Brighton will most certainly have to work hard in order to earn the three points from the clash.

Bristol City 1 – 2 Brighton and Hove Albion
