Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football game at Weston Homes Stadium pits together Peterborough United and Bristol City, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Posh aim to escape the relegation zone, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Robins, who aim to move closer to the playoffs berth. The newcomers are fighting hard to secure the Championship survival, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to meet the goal.
It has to be noted that Peterborough produced a fine display in a goalless draw with Bournemouth on Wednesday evening. All Beevers, Jones, Marriott, and Randall are sidelined with injuries. Since Bristol City aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Millwall, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Both Cundy and Scott are rated doubtful for the match, while Conway remains in Bristol City’s treatment room.
Highlighted Player (Mark Beevers):
Born in Barnsley, England on November 21, 1989, Mark Beevers is a 193-cm tall defender who plays for Peterborough United. The product of Sheffield Wednesday football school made 140 appearances in the league for the Owls before signing a permanent deal with fellow Championship club Millwall.
Mark Beevers scored 7 goals in 117 appearances for the Lions, playing for the club until the 2016 transfer window. The English defender then moved to Bolton where he scored 11 goals in 121 appearances in the league.
In May 2019 Mark Beevers signed a three-year deal with Peterborough United. He made his League One debut with the Posh in a 3-1 loss to Fleetwood Town on August 3, 2019. His main position is centre-back, but he is used as a left-back as well. His preferred foot is left and he has a contract with Peterborough United which should expire on June 30, 2022.
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.
