Bristol City started this season very good and after 5 rounds they are standing at the 3rd position with only one point less than current leader Peterborough.

Home side is one of the three League One teams without defeat this season (3-2-0). Bristol City is playing very good and they are one of the main candidates to promote in Championship.

In home team Wes Burns (0/0 m) is the only absence, but he didn’t play this season, so…

Scunthorpe have improved their performance, after 4 matches without win, and finally took all three points last week against Walsall, one of the worst teams in League One.

Their manager Russ Wilcox said that it will a tough test for his side. “They’ll be a big crowd down there and we’re going as underdogs really.“ he said.

Without any doubt Bristol City is a favorite to win this match. They could have an easy job against Scunthorpe, because the visitors have many problems with the injuries and suspensions, especially in defence.

The first goalkeeper Sam Slocombe (1/0 gk) is out. He played the first match in League One this season and they lost 3-1 against Swindon. After him, their manager gave a chance to the second goalkeeper James Severn (1/0 gk) and he was terrible after Preston beat them 0-4 away. So, on goal will be Robert Olejnik (3/0 gk) who came from Peterborough where he didn’t play single match.

Out are also Miles Addison (3/0 d), Luke O’Neill (3/0 d), Marcus Williams (3/0 d), David Mirfin (0/0 d), Deon Burton (3/0 f) and David Syers (1/0 m), while Eddie Nolan (3/0 d) is doubtful.

In the moment when I writing this preview, odds for away win are dropping, while on the home team is raising, but don’t believe in the odds and bookmakers.

However, I expect home win!
