Ian Holloway predicts Bristol City v Leeds

Bristol City will face Leeds United at home in the Championship on Wednesday.

Former Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has predicted on Skysports.com that Bristol City will win against Leeds United tomorrow evening.

Newly-promoted City will take on Leeds at home in the Championship looking to win their first competitive game of the season.

Steve Cotterill’s side lost 2-0 to Sheffield Wednesday away from home on the opening weekend of the season, before going down 3-1 at Luton Town in the first round of the League Cup.

Then on Saturday, Brentford eased past City 4-2 at the Ashton Gate Stadium.

West Yorkshire outfit Leeds have also started the season disappointingly and have yet to win a competitive match.

The Whites played out a 1-1 draw with Burnley at Elland Road in their first Championship game of the season, before losing the League Cup first-round tie to Doncaster Rovers away from home.

Then on Sunday afternoon, Leeds played out a goalless draw with Reading away from home at the Madjeski Stadium.

Holloway believes that City will edge past Leeds at home and has predicted a 1-0 win for the Robins.

“It’s been a tough start for Bristol City,” the 52-year-old wrote on Skysports.com. “They were 2-1 up before they had a man sent off against Brentford.

“City were brilliant at home last year and I think it’s only a matter of time before they get it going. I think they’ll nick this one and they’ll finish higher than people think.”
