Our match prediction:
Following back-to-back draws with the likes of Burton Albion and Wigan Athletic, Fulham take on Bristol City at their Craven Cottage on Matchday 9. The Cottagers kicked off the new Championship campaign on a high, but Slavisa Jokanovic’s troops have not been as impressive in the English second tier of late. Fulham aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the league and the capital club are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football game against Bristol City. The Robins were on the verge of suffering a loss to Derby County at the weekend, but they eventually shared the spoils with the Rams in front of home fans. Bristol City are on a three-game winless run in the Championship as well, meaning that both teams are likely to go for a victory in the Craven Cottage clash. Taking everything into account, we predict that both teams are going to find the net on Matchday 9.
