Bristol City preview: Stuck in the middle of the table

While Bristol City have done well recently, with three wins and three draws in the last six Championship rounds, they've been inconsistent this season overall. That's why the Robins are right in the middle of the standings, too far from the playoffs, with just two games left in the season.

When it comes to team news, Bristol City are without injured Zak Vyner, Kal Naismith, Sam Bell, Rob Atkinson, and Ayman Benarous.
