Our prediction for this Championship match:
After sharing the spoils with both Preston and Norwich in the Championship, Wigan suffered elimination in the EFL Cup on Tuesday as Fleetwood proved to be a big catch for them. Key players return to the starting XI after they were rested in the EFL Cup defeat, while midfielder Jack Whatmough remains on the sidelines with injury.
The Robins, on the other hand, kicked off the new Championship campaign with back-to-back losses to Hull City and Sunderland, but they proved their worth in the 4-1 EFL Cup triumph over Coventry City. Bristol City, though, are not regarded as good travellers, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on draw. Talented forward Tommy Conway could earn a place in the starting XI after scoring a brace in the EFL Cup triumph. Nathan Baker, on the other hand, remains in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
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.
