Bristol City vs Middlesbrough
Both teams played in cup making huge turnovers, Bristol loose and Boro gained next rounds at penalties ( but no extra times ), guests lead the table after two wins and one draw in three games, while Bristol, with one game played less, has only two points.
Stronger already on paper, guests will be also adavantaged by a delepted defense for home team. Last season regular keeper Fielding remain out, second choice Maenpaa played till now, but this 33 years old keeper newcomer from Brighton played only one match ( in championship) in last three seasons after arrived from Venlo.
Four defenders, newcomer Adelakun, youngster Moore and key Baker ( 2/ 34) and Wright ( 36 last season) are all out and is also unavailable striker Diedhiou ( 13g last season)
Strikers Gestede ( 3g last season( and newcomer Hugill remain out for guests, but all other players are available and they can gain the third consecutive win of the season in my opinion.
