Our football match prediction:
Ashton Gate Stadium will host Tuesday’s football match between Bristol City and Hull City. The Robins managed to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Cardiff City and QPR, with the team beating Blackburn Rovers at the weekend. Bristol City regained a much-needed confidence and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they square off against Hull City in the EFL Cup. The Tigers are running down a blind alley ahead of the trip to Bristol as they are on a five-game losing run in the Premier League at the moment. The visitors are desperate to return to winning ways and, no doubt, Mike Phelan’s men will take the match very seriously. When the two teams met in the Championship last season Hull City recorded a 4-0 win over Bristol City and seeing that the Premier League team want this win more than their rivals, we predict that the visitors are going to leave their hearts on the field in the Ashton Gate Stadium clash.

Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider.
