The latest predictions on where Bristol City will finish in the Championship

Bristol City returned to winning ways at the weekend as they picked up a 2-0 win against Blackpool. The Robins had lost three successive matches in all competitions prior to Saturday’s clash at Ashton Gate.

While City have enjoyed a brilliant start to the year, they still sit 13th in the Championship table and are nine points off a play-off spot, while also 16 points above relegation. The rest of the campaign looks rather set in stone for Nigel Pearson’s side, though they could still earn their highest finish in the second tier since winning promotion from League One in 2015. Lee Johnson guided the Robins to eighth in the Championship during the 2018-19 season.
