Our football match prediction:
Despite being regarded as hot favourites to win Saturday’s football match against Bolton, Fulham picked up only one point from the game against the relegation-threatened team, with Tom Cairney scoring a late equalizer for the capital club. Slavisa Jokanovic’s men aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Championship and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Bristol City on Matchday 15. The Cottagers are only four points behind the play-offs berth in the standings, but beating the in-form Robins is easier said than done. Bristol City proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Sunderland at Stadium of Light at the weekend, with Bobby Reid scoring his eighth goal of the season. The former Plymouth attacker has found his goal-scoring touch of late and all eyes will be on him when Bristol City face Fulham at Craven Cottage. A close encounter appears on the cards and we believe that the two teams will play out a draw in London.
