Bristol City's average away Championship attendance compared to Plymouth Argyle, Blackburn Rovers, Millwall and Swansea City

Here's how a Championship away attendance table stands after 26 games so far.

The Championship is on a break right now as the FA Cup takes precedence. It was a busy period for the 24 teams in English football's second tier as they navigated through a busy fixture schedule.

Christmas always throws up a treat of festive football, with so many games played in such a short amount of time. It often tends to see bumper attendances, as those who live away from their beloved clubs return home for Christmas and support their team.

Supporting your team on your travels at Christmas is another thing. You're telling your family members you'd rather travel the length and breadth of the country. It's quite the task too as sometimes public transport isn't as widely available, and so good on those who managed to get in some away games over the festive break.

Bristol City have impressively sold out their allocation of 8,924 tickets for their third round tie against West Ham at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday, January 7. It's the first time that they will have visited the ground, and Liam Manning's side will rightfully be backed by a huge away following with the hope of a cup upset.

On the topic of away support, fans of any team like to see how their club is doing against their respective rivals. City have already had played their two closest away games against Cardiff City and Swansea City, and so fans have got some travelling to do.

Thanks to the information collated by EFL website The 72, we can look at the level of away support of all 24 teams. Here's how the Robins fare against the likes of Plymouth Argyle, Blackburn Rovers, Millwall and Swansea City.
