Bristol City will be looking to record their first home win of the season when they host Portsmouth on Saturday.
After securing their first points of the season in a superb victory at title contenders Leicester on Wednesday, Keith Millen’s side will want to build on that hard-fought win and surge further up the table.
However, Portsmouth stand in their way and they too are coming off the back of an impressive scalp – a 1-0 home win against Reading.
As a result, this is a tie that draws two evenly matched sides together, with both fancying their chances of victory.
In the last campaign, the home side came out on top on both occasions. With this in mind, you may fancy backing Bristol City on their home turf at 7/5.
Meanwhile, when it comes to head-to-head results, in the last ten meetings, these sides have racked up five draws between them so at 9/4, a stalemate should not be ignored.
However, Portsmouth will also be hopeful of three points. With new signings Erik Husklepp and fans favourite Benjani added to their ranks this week, this could prove to be the catalyst Pompey need to record their first win on the road this campaign, priced at 9/5.
Steve Cotterill’s men have lost the first half of three out of their four opening fixtures this season, while only being able to find the net in the second half.
As a result, the half-time Bristol City, full-time Portsmouth option is a tasty offering at 25/1.
Alternatively, punters could bet on there being more than 1.5 goals in the second-half, with this selection available at odds of 6/5.
A successful £25 free bet on there being at least two goals in the second half stands to return £55, the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
Bristol City goalkeeper David James is also in line to face his former employers and you can back him to keep a clean sheet at 39/20.
