Our football match prediction:
Leeds United will be aiming to make amends for a heartbreaking loss to Cardiff City when they face Bristol City in yet another home fixture. The Whites suffered three defeats in last four games in all competitions, but Tuesday’s football match against the Robins could be the turning point for the hosts. Leeds sit in fifth place in the standings ahead of the visit of Bristol City and, as things stand now, they are unlikely to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League. Anyhow, the hosts are desperate to grab something from the game and we predict that they will fight tooth and nail against Lee Johnson’s troops. Bristol City dropped a two-goal advantage in a 3-3 draw with Derby County at the weekend, but they are definitely capable of finding the net in Tuesday’s clash against the out-of-form Whites. A man to watch in the home team will be Chris Wood, who has netted 18 goals so far this season.
