Bristol City v West Bromwich Albion Preview, FA Cup, 3rd Round Replay, Tuesday 19th January 2016

Bristol City were very unlucky not to have won their 3rd round match away against West Brom ten days ago as the Championship side were denied by an injury time equaliser.

The hosts lost their following game in the league when going down 2-1 at home against Preston North End, but had their confidence restored over the weekend when beating league leaders Middlesbrough 1-0 and that result will surely have both the fans and players very much up for this game come Tuesday night.

West Brom secured a very good 2-2 draw in their next match away in the league against Chelsea, but then got completely outplayed by Southampton over the weekend away from home losing 3-0 and that will not have done the players confidence much good as they prepare for this one.

Tony Pulis’ side seem to be going through a tough time of it at the moment and although the club is a comfortable 8pts clear of the relegation zone in the Premiership, I’m not sure that the distraction of the FA Cup is a good thing, so it wouldn’t surprise me to see Pulis rest one or two of his key players for this game.

Bristol City Team News:

The hosts have not fresh injury problems to contend with and look likely to stick with the same starting eleven that beat Middlesbrough 1-0 over the weekend. Jonathan Kodija will again lead the attack up front on his own with support in behind being provided by Burns, Reid, Pack, Smith and Bryan.

West Bromwich Albion Team News:

The visitors also have no fresh injuries to their squad but manager Tony Pulis is likely to make some changes to the starting lineup to the one that was comfortably beaten by Southampton over the weekend. Berahino, Rondon and Chris Brunt all looking likely to start this game.

Bristol City v West Bromwich Albion Head to Head Statistics:

Tuesday night’s game from Ashton Gate will become the 21st meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Bristol City have won 5 times with 4 of those having came with home advantage where as West Brom have managed 9 victories, with 3 of those having came away from home.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows West Brom with a clear advantage having won three times, compared to Bristol City having won just the once and the remaining game having finished all square.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

51 Goals have been scored in the previous 20 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of exactly 2.50.

19 of those Goals have came in the 10 previous matches played at Ashton Gate and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 1.90.

Based on both sets of data shown above, it does seem to indicate that this game should see between 2 or 3 goals scored on Tuesday night and betting markets like Both Teams to Score and Total Match Goals 2 or 3 could be the markets to be on for this game.

Bristol City v West Bromwich Albion Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Bristol City will be brimming of confidence on Tuesday night in front of their home fans at Ashton Gate Stadium as with holding premiership side West Brom to a 2-2 draw at the Hawthornes ten days ago and then beating championship league leaders Middlesbrough over the weekend 1-0, all the players taking to the pitch will believe they can cause a massive shock by winning this match.

West Brom will not be as confident as they suffered a 3-0 defeat in their last match played over the weekend against Southampton and really didn’t look at all like scoring during that match and there does still seem to be some issues going on behind the scenes with certain players wanting to move on to other clubs that is having a negative effect on the squad and if Tony Pulis’ side go behind in this game on Tuesday night, they are going to have a very tough time of getting back into it.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be for Both Teams to Score as with the previous fixture between the two clubs having finished all square, I am expecting this game to follow suit and see at least a few goals scored.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be West Brom’s striker Rondon to open the goalscoring for his team as he will feel he has something to prove in this match having only been handed a place on the bench in the weekend’s 3-0 drubbing by Southampton.
