Bristol City vs Leicester City

, KO: 12:30 Mar 29, 2024, Ashton Gate Stadium
Leicester City

Leicester City continue their Championship title chase as they travel to Ashton Gate for a clash with Bristol City on Friday. The Foxes have stumbled slightly in recent times but remain decent on the road and should have the upper hand over Bristol, who are unconvincing at home.

Bristol City went into the international break off the back of a 2-0 defeat to West Brom last time out in the Championship. Liam Manning’s men created a few chances but were wasteful in attack, failing to convert any of their five attempts on target.

That result is consistent with Bristol City’s recent form as they have lost five of their last six Championship matches. They remain in the bottom half of the table but are well clear of the relegation zone.

Bristol City have also found things difficult in front of their fans, with just two wins in their last seven home matches. One of those wins came in their previous fixture at Ashton Gate as they picked up a 1-0 victory over Swansea City.

Leicester City stumbled slightly in the weeks preceding the international break as they claimed just one win from their last five matches. They have been leapfrogged by Leeds United and are now second on the table on goal difference.

The Foxes were held to a 2-2 draw at Hull City in their previous Championship fixture. They fell behind twice but showed great character to fight back, with Jamie Vardy netting a brace.

One positive for Leicester City is that they have fared better on their travels and are unbeaten in eight of their last 10 away matches, claiming six wins in that run. However, they are often unconvincing at the back, keeping just three clean sheets in that run.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have installed Leicester City as overwhelming favourites with a win priced at 4/5 by William Hill. A victory for Bristol City is valued at 7/2 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 27/10 by Coral.

Head to head

Leicester City have an 8-4 advantage with seven draws from 19 previous matches against Bristol City. The Foxes have also won the last three meetings and claimed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in September with Jamie Vardy getting the goal.

Players to watch

Bristol City will be keen to capitalise on Leicester City’s defensive vulnerability and will look to Tommy Conway to provide the spark in attack. The forward is their leading scorer with seven goals and is priced at 7/2 by bet365 to find the net on Friday.

Jamie Vardy got plenty of rest during the international break and could be handed a start on Friday. The striker remains the leading scorer for Leicester City with 13 goals and is priced at 7/4 by bet365 to score anytime on Friday.
