Bristol City vs Leicester City tips and predictions: Foxes back to winning ways at Ashton Gate

The Sky Sports cameras will be rolling when Bristol City welcome Leicester City to Ashton Gate in a crucial Championship clash on Good Friday lunchtime (1230 GMT).

The Easter weekend is one of the most crucial in the Championship season and Leicester City have little room for error.

Enzo Maresca’s side have lost to Middlesbrough, Leeds, QPR and Chelsea in recent weeks and also slipped up in a 2-2 draw with Hull.

The Foxes have tasted that winning feeling once in seven matches, a backs-to-the-wall 1-0 win against Sunderland, and could so easily be winless in eight.

Bristol City are a limited yet capable opponent. They’ve lost five of six but recorded back-to-back wins over Boro and Southampton before that.

 

Liam Manning’s young side can beat anyone on their day but their lack of goals makes any comeback if they do fall behind unlikely.

The Robins are winless in 16 matches when conceding the first goal but they’ve won 12 of 15 when opening the scoring.

Notably, the visitors have scored first in 16 of 19 Championship away fixtures, but it took them a long time to find their way through City earlier this season.

Who wins this game seems like it will depend on who opens the scoring but nothing suggests it’ll be wide-open and full of goals.
