Team News: Bristol City
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the sole fitness concern for the Bristol City gaffer Nigel Pearson to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Andreas Weimann (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined. Rene Gilmartin is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Luton Town
Owing to an otherwise healthy squad, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Luton Town gaffer Nathan Jones to contend with. Tom Lockyer (Ankle Surgery) won’t be in action.
Luton Town and Bristol City may well end up cancelling each other out here. Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. We’re therefore predicting a hard-fought 1-1 score draw at the conclusion of the game.
