Leeds v Bristol City Championship, 18th February 4.30pm
Leeds have been unable to stop their slide back down towards the middle of the Championship table as their winless streak continued last weekend in a Yorkshire derby defeat against Sheffield United.

Leeds v Bristol City Betting Odds*
Leeds 8/5, Bristol City 13/8, Draw 23/10* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 4:21 p.m.)
Leeds News and Form
Leeds have taken just a D2 L5 record in their last seven league games so all’s not well again at Elland Road. Their defence has conceded nine goals in their last four games now and at home, they have shipped four goals in each of their last two fixtures (defeats against Millwall and Cardiff. Leeds have only managed to score in three of their last seven games as well in the Championship and everything has gone sour again. Their home form reads W6 D4 L5 for the season and if you look at the bigger picture then they have lost just two of their last seven league games on home soil. If they were to churn out a win in this one then you would imagine that it wouldn’t be a huge victory. Leeds to win by a one-goal margin with Paddy Power is at 7/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 5:21 p.m.). Four of their six home wins have been by a one-goal margin only. Leeds have averaged 1.4 goals per home game this season, and they have been leading at half time in eight of their home fixtures, trailing at the break in just two of them. 33% of their league goals this season have happened in the final fifteen minutes of matches.
Bristol City News and Form
The Robins have managed only the one win in their last seven league games so aren’t doing much better than Leeds are at the moment. They are W1 D2 L1 in their last four though after playing out a crazy 3-3 come draw with Sunderland on the weekend. Their away form is nothing to write home about at the moment as the Robins have failed to collect a win in any of their last four on the road now, drawing two and losing two. They do still have one of the better away records in the division this season and one of the best offensive records too, but they have lost momentum a bit, highlighted in their 1-0 loss at Bolton in their last away game. The Robins have failed to hit the back of the net in any of their last three games out on the road in the Championship and under 1.5 goals at Paddy Power is at 5/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 5:21 p.m.). Overall this season Bristol City are W6 D6 L3 on the road in the Championship but it’s not quite happening for them at the moment and in the Paddy Power correct score market the shortest priced option is the 1-1 draw at 11/2 while a Leeds 1-0 is at 8/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 5:21 p.m.). Can they make something happen at Elland Road on Sunday to keep them hanging on the play off spots?
Leeds v Bristol City Head to Head
Leeds collected a 3-0 away win at Ashton Gate earlier in the season and that is back to back league wins that they have taken over City now. They have only lost one of their last seven games in league competition against the Robins too. Leeds are on a six-match winning streak at Elland Road against Bristol City at the moment and each of the last four have all been by a one-goal winning margin only.
Who will win – Leeds v Bristol City Predictions
It may just be worth backing Leeds to end their slump and edge a win in this one. That is what the head to head suggests is going to happen and with Bristol City struggling to get themselves going on the road, a home win could well crop up here.
