Bristol City vs West Bromwich Albion Prediction

West Brom's recent form has given them an outside chance of making the playoffs following their spectacular implosion in the last few months. However, their poor form on the road suggests they could have an uphill task at Bristol.

Bristol City, meanwhile, have also been plagued by inconsistencies and have little to play for this season. A close affair can be expected, given the playing styles off both teams, but the visitors are expected to secure a narrow victory and a clean sheet.

Prediction: Bristol City 0-1 West Bromwich Albion.
