Bristol City are going great guns at the moment and we can’t pass up the opportunity to back the Robins to overcome Wolves on Sunday.

Lee Johnson’s team are a massive price to record victory at Ashton Gate, with City having won eight matches on the bounce to land themselves a current spot in the play-offs at this stage of the season.

Defensively, Bristol City have been outstanding considering that just two goals have been conceded in these eight consecutive matches, with Tomas Kalas impressing during a loan spell from Chelsea and Adam Webster also impressing at the back.

City have knocked out Huddersfield and Bolton to reach the last sixteen and will feel confident of getting the better of a Wolves side who have tended to be under-strength when it comes to playing FA Cup encounters.

Wanderers beat Liverpool in the third round and it was the Reds who were missing the most players, while they came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Shrewsbury before winning at Molineux 3-2 in what was another close game.

It is clear that the Midlands team are not treating the FA Cup with the seriousness of the Premier League and there might not be much between these two teams on the day, with City clearly confident of recording a scalp.

The Championship side got all the way to the League Cup semi-finals last season, beating Manchester United on the way and then running Manchester City close so they will feel that they can serve it up against opponents who might be showing several changes to the team that drew 1-1 with Newcastle.

Wolves seem better suited to playing the stronger opponents in the Premier League and they are on a hiding to nothing in this sort of game, with another top flight side potentially about to fall by the wayside.
