Our prediction for this Championship match:
Tuesday’s football game at Oakwell pits together Barnsley and Bristol City, the two bottom-table sides. The Tykes aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, and a win in the midweek clash will see them move closer to the safe zone. All Aaron Leya Iseka, Victor Adeboyejo, Cauley Woodrow, and Jordan Williams should miss out with injuries, while Callum Styles is a major doubt.
The Robins, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Blackburn, and they managed to get one. Bristol City regained a much-needed confidence, but seeing that they have little to play for in the season finale, we are tempted to put our money on the relegation-threatened hosts. Robbie Cundy should keep his place in the starting XI after impressing on his first start for Bristol City, while all Tomas Kalas, George Tanner, and Andy King are out of contention with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Nahki Wells):
Born on June 1, 1990 in Hamilton, Bermuda, Nahki Wells is a 170-cm-tall attacker who plays for the Bermuda national team. Wells is a product of Dandy Town Hornets youth academy and he continued playing for the Bermudan side at senior level.
The experienced striker played for the likes of Bermuda Hogges, Eccleshill United and Carlisle United before joining Bradford City in 2011. After spending three seasons at Valley Parade, Nahki Wells signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Huddersfield Town in the winter of 2014. In 2017 he moved to Burnley, but he played for Queens Park Rangers as a loan footballer in the 2018/2019 season.
Speaking of his international career, Wells made his debut for the Bermuda national team in 2007. He scored his first ever goal for Bermuda in the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Trinidad and Tobago. The Burnley man will represent the Gombey Warriors at the 2019 Gold Cup.
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.
