After a 5-game losing streak, Bristol City will be eager to bounce back when they host the not so consistent Cardiff City at the Ashton Gate in the 26th round of the English Championship.
The hosts have been in a very weak situation in recent weeks. Bristol City is the weakest side in terms of form in all of the Championship teams. The team have lost all of their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Reading at home where the game ended 3-2 to the visitors.
Bristol City are sitting in 18th place in the league table with 27 points from 8 wins, 3 draws and 14 losses. The team have scored 33 goals and conceded 35 since the start of the season.
Midfielder Korey Smith is out for at least a month with a hamstring injury while full-back Adam Matthews will miss the match against his former club with ligament problems. Midfielder Gary O’Neil and the out-of-favour Joel Ekstrand are both ill, but goalkeeper Frank Fielding and defender Hordur Magnusson could be fit.
Despite the fact the visitors are level on points with the hosts, Cardiff City are the favorites here due to their much better form compared to the hosts. The team have lost only one game in their last 5 league matches. They have collected a total of 8 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Aston Villa at home where they won 1-0.
Cardiff are sitting in the 19th place in the league table with 27 points from 7 wins, 6 draws and 11 losses. They have scored 27 goals and conceded 38 since the start of the season.
Midfielder Peter Whittingham has missed the last two games since going off against Brentford on Boxing Day. Kenneth Zohore may be recalled after sitting on the bench in the FA Cup defeat by Fulham.
