ALTHOUGH Steve Bruce’s Hull were beaten 1-0 at struggling Wolves on Tuesday, Watford’s defeat at Millwall meant they actually inched towards the promised land.

A win at home to rock-bottom City here will ensure only defeats in their last two games could deny them promotion.

The Tigers have won 13 times at home this season but also lost six – including successive defeats at the hands of Nottingham Forest and Watford before a 1-0 win over woeful Middlesbrough in their last home fixture.

Tuesday’s defeat was hardly indicative of a side on top of their game and once again demonstrated how little there is between sides at either end of the table but should have too much for the visitors here.

Sean O’Driscoll’s Bristol City threatened to make a fight of things with some spirited performances since the turn of the year but a run of six games without a win, culminating in Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat at home to Birmingham, has consigned them to League One next season.

Their away form has been poor with three wins and three draws away from Ashton Gate the worst record in the division. Strike pair Steve Davies (13 goals in 18 starts) and Sam Baldock are capable of giving opposing defences plenty of problems.

They have scored as many goals as ninth placed Charlton but problems are at the other end – 76 goals conceded is the worst in the division.

At 1.41 the layers expect a comfortable home win and at first glance it’s hard to disagree with City’s away record and their season now over.

However, given Hull’s less than impressive recent form and the fact in this league any side can, and regularly do, beat another, I’ll steer clear of the outright market.

As stated above, scoring goals hasn’t been City’s main problem this season and with the pressure of relegation now lifted, you’d expect them to play with a certain amount of freedom. Both teams to score at 1.98 looks a good bet.

And following on from the above, a small play on the 2-1 to the home side in the correct score market is also recommended at 9.2.
