Bristol City return to Sky Bet Championship action this weekend as they face Norwich City at Ashton Gate.

Bristol City currently sit fourth in the Sky Bet Championship and are just two points behind second placed Derby County.

Lee Johnson’s men have captured the nation’s heart with their run in the Carabao Cup. Knocking out Manchester United in the quarter finals, City would have the opportunity to take on the unstoppable force in the Premier League.

Bobby Reid had put the Robins one goal up to silence the Etihad before Kevin de Bruyne brought the party atmosphere back as he equalised.

It took a stoppage time winner from Sergio Aguero to ensure Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City would take an advantage going into the second leg of their semi-final.

Johnson’s side’s league form has been far more unspectacular as they have lost back to back league games against sides towards the top of the table.

A 2-1 defeat to runaway leaders Wolves was followed by a thumping 5-0 victory at the hands of Aston Villa. It hasn’t been a great start to 2018 for the Robins as they also crashed out of the FA Cup with a 3-0 defeat to Premier League Watford.

Opponents Norwich sit in 13th place, comfortably in mid table in the Sky Bet Championship.

Daniel Farke’s side are in rather good form coming into the clash against Bristol City after collecting seven points from their last three games.

A draw away at Burton was sandwiched in between victories over Birmingham City and Millwall have given the Canaries a good start to 2018.

The side from Norfolk were also able to earn a replay in the FA Cup against Premier League champions Chelsea. A goalless draw at Carrow Road saw the two sides need another 90 minutes to split them.

These two met earlier in the season with it ending in another goalless draw at Carrow Road.
