FA Cup Heartbreak For Bristol
The Robins put in a valiant effort last weekend in their FA Cup clash with Premier League outfit Wolves.
After a poor display in the first half, they came out fighting in the second and even goalkeeper Frank Fielding had an effort saved by his counterpart in stoppage time as they attempted to level the scores.
That was their first defeat in 16 matches across all competitions as they’d won each of their previous nine, though a slight concern will be that only one of their 13 league matches in this run came against a top-six side, while as many as nine of them were with bottom-half opponents.
Norwich Looking To Stay Top
Norwich, on the other hand, bounced back from their disappointment to an in-form Preston side to comprehensively overcome 23rd-placed Bolton.
That means they’ve now won three of their last four outings as they also beat both Leeds and Ipswich, netting three or more and winning by at least two clear goals in each of these.
That is impressive form, though they’ll have to be at the top of their game to continue their surge at the head of the table.
However, they’ll be confident back at Carrow Road, where they’ve won seven of their last 10 with only Derby leaving them pointless.
Norwich v Bristol Betting Tips
Bristol City have lost three of five winless matches when facing 7th placed Derby or above this season Now, the Rams host Millwall on Wednesday night and should leapfrog Bristol into sixth and if we extend the Robins record against top-six opposition into last term, then they’re W1-D3-L7 over their last 11 – including five defeats from six winless trips.
That compares to the Canaries going unbeaten from five matches with such sides since losing to Leeds back in August, and they should have too much firepower as the second-highest scorers in the league, especially up against a side that has only netted more than once in one of their last five trips.
