Bristol City vs Leicester City Preview

The Bristol City vs Leicester City EFL Championship fixture promises to be a tightly fought contest. While Leicester will be looking to leap-frog the league leaders Leeds United with a win over Bristol City, the hosts will be looking to gather some sort of momentum for the remainder of the season.

Despite Leicester City being sort of a stronger proposition on paper, Bristol City had players that could make a major difference on the day for them. The Foxes’ leading scorer Jamie Vardy has 13 goals to his name in the ongoing 2023-2024 Championship season. He’s been in a fine goal-scoring form for the Midlands side.

However, when it comes to goal-scorers, Bristol City’s main man Tommy Conway has seven goals to his name in his last 31 outings for his club in the Championship. There’s no doubt that if the hosts want a positive outcome against the Foxes, Conway has to step up and deliver a solid performance for them.

Though home advantage could work in the favour of Bristol City FC, Leicester would be aware of that. The home team would be looking to start on the front foot. On the contrary, the Foxes would want to put Bristol City under pressure from the first whistle. The fixture might turn out to be an entertaining clash for the fans.
