Your Bristol City starting XI gallery after January transfers - according to Football Manager 2023

Is this how Nigel Pearson’s side could look after the January transfer window?

Bristol City returned from their World Cup Finals-enforced break with a crucial 3-1 win at Rotherham United last weekend.

Joe Williams and Cameron Pring were on target as Nigel Pearson’s men claimed a valuable three points at the AESSEAL New York Stadium and created a three-point gap to the Championship relegation zone. With an Ashton Gate double-header against Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion and a visit to Millwall on the agenda for the next week, the Robins will hope to start looking up the table, rather than over their shoulders, by the time they have completed their trio of festive fixtures.

Once they are done, the focus will switch towards the January transfer window as Pearson looks to strengthen his squad in a bid to improve throughout the second half of the season. But how could the Robins look by the time the window closes at the end of January?

BristolWorld utilises the popular Football Manager 2023 game to predict what signings Pearson could make during the first month of the new year.
