Out of the frying pan and into the fire for Boro. Having stopped 100% Reading in their tracks with a 0-0 draw at the Riverside, Neil Warnock’s team must take the long road south west to try and tame league leaders Bristol City and possibly prevent them continuing their unbeaten start.
It is a tough run of fixtures for Boro but if we could bring back some spoils from Ashton Gate it would represent a major boost. Especially after we failed to add any forwards to the team picture before transfer window deadline last week. Whether we will be able to even afford to invest in a free agent is a new question. But with Ashley Fletcher facing a long time on the sidelines can we afford not to?
Bristol City were pinned back late doors to a 2-2 draw at Barnsley at the weekend. Hopefully this has planted a seed of doubt in their minds that we can exploit. If we can get back to the amazing away form that saved our Championship hides in lockdown then we could give the Robins a real test.
Kick off tomorrow at Ashton Gate will be 7.45pm. The match is free on the red button or through mfc.co.uk
