Our football match prediction:
Bristol City play host to Wolverhampton at their Ashton Gate Stadium on Matchday 24. The Robins did well to beat Reading (2-0) on Boxing Day and they are now ready for yet another festive fixture. Bristol City are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home in the Championship and they are definitely capable of grabbing something from the derby against Wolverhampton. The Wolves are leading the standings ahead of the Ashton Gate Stadium clash and they are on a ten-game unbeaten run in the league at the moment. Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops have been impressive at the back of late and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in the Championship derby. Seeing that Wolverhampton are eight points clear of Bristol City in the standings, the visitors are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Saturday’s football match and, taking everything into account, share of spoils is on the cards.
