Our football match prediction:
Aston Villa desperately needed a win against Derby County and they got one. The Villans put an end to their five-game losing run in the league and they are high on confidence ahead of Tuesday's postponed fixture against Bristol City. James Chester scored the winner against the Rams and it has to be noted that Leandro Bacuna was sent off in the dying seconds of the match. The former Groningen man misses the Bristol City clash through suspension, but coach Steve Bruce has a number of high-profile players to choose from and we predict that the hosts will build on the 1-0 win over Derby. The Robins, on the other hand, were on the verge of beating Newcastle United at St. James’ Park at the weekend, but the two teams eventually shared the spoils (2-2). The visitors are on a four-game winless run in the Championship and we would not be surprised if they fail to grab something from Tuesday’s football match.
Highligted Player (Ross McCormack):
Ross McCormack is considered one of the best Scottish attackers at the moment. He began his senior career at Rangers, but played no more than 11 matches for the Gers during his spell at Ibrox Stadium. McCormack joined Motherwell in 2006, but he was struggling with injuries during his first season at the club. In October 2007, though, he was named Young Player of the Month and back then he was monitored by a number of scouts from big clubs. Despite being linked with a move to Wigan Athletic, Ross McCormack joined Cardiff City on 28 June on a free transfer. The Scottish attacker impressed in the 2008/2009 Championship campaign with the Bluebirds, scoring 21 goals in the league, but he was not as successful in the 2009/2010 season as he netted no more than 4 goals in the Championship. In 2010 he signed a contract with Leeds United and went on to score 53 goals in 140 league appearances for the club. On 8 July 2014, he moved to Fulham for a fee of £11,000,000 and he has been playing for the capital club ever since.
Highlighted Team (Bristol City):
Bristol City are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Bristol. Formed in 1894 the Robins mostly participated in English lower leagues and they have never played in the Premier League. Bristol City’s bitterest rivals are Bristol Rovers and it has to be noted that two teams first met in 1897. Bristol City have outplayed their local rivals on 43 occasions in the Bristol Derby. Cardiff City are regarded as Bristol City’s bitter rivals as well. The Robins play their home games at Ashton Gate, the stadium that was opened in 1887. Bristol City were semi-finalists of the League Cup two times (1970/1971, 1988/1989), with the team making it to the FA Cup final in 1909. The Robins faced Manchester United in the title game, but they failed to upset the English giants in the Crystal Palace clash. It is well known that Bristol City footballers wear red shirts and blue shorts.
