Swansea City vs Bristol City preview
Swansea bested automatic promotion hopefuls, Blackburn Rovers, last weekend, with Michael Obafemi’s 16th-minute strike the only goal of the afternoon at the Liberty Stadium.
But, such has been the Swans’ season to date, it came as little surprise when Russell Martin’s side followed that great performance up with a shocker at Stoke City on Tuesday.
The Welsh side had Ryan Bennett sent off as they went down by three goals to nil at the City Ground.
The result means that it’s now six defeats in 10 Championship games for Swansea, leaving them adrift of the playoff places by 11 points but with a game in hand on most sides looking down on them.
Swansea’s opponent, Bristol City, managed to scrape a 2-1 win against Reading midweek. Goals from Antoine Semenyo and Michael Morrison easing the pressure slightly on Nigel Pearson who, much like his counterpart in the opposite dugout on Sunday, is under the scrutiny of Robins’ fans.
Ultimately, much more was expected of Swansea and Bristol City at the start of the season, and Sunday’s game gives both sides a chance to begin their ascent back towards the upper echelons of the division.
But, given the pressure generated by both sets of fans at the moment due to inconsistent and lackluster performances, this is not a game that either manager will want to lose, which is why a draw seems like a likely result.
Regardless of the outcome, however, you can follow the action LIVE at bet365.
When does Swansea City vs Bristol City kick-off?
