Bristol City are back in Championship action this weekend as Nigel Pearson’s side take on Cardiff City as they look to keep their impressive league form going

Bristol City take on rivals Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium this weekend as they look to bounce back from their loss against Manchester City in the FA Cup last time out. The Premier League giants beat the Robins 3-0 but that was their first loss in 12 games in all competitions.

The Robins have been in great form in the Championship and beat Hull City last Saturday after a late penalty by striker Nakhi Wells. Their positive run of results has seen them rise up to 13th in the league table after a slow start to the season and they are 10 points off the play-offs. They will have to continue their upwards trajectory if they are to make a late push for the top six and there are a lot of clubs between them and the promotion slots right now.

Huddersfield Town, who are now managed by their former boss Neil Warnock, have a game in-hand so the Bluebirds are nervously looking over their shoulder towards the bottom three.
