Hello and welcome to Friday’s live blog as we build up to Bristol City’s clash with Derby County at Ashton Gate tomorrow.
There is a slight sense of foreboding about this game, primarily because of what occurred at Bramall Lane last Sunday and because those key midfielders who were missing in Sheffield are unlikely to be fit to face the Rams.
Derby County are, of course, bottom of the Championship but without their points deductions would be a point and a place behind Bristol City, indicating that they’re a far better team than their league position suggests.
It’s a major examination of this City team as to exactly where they are under Nigel Pearson and if a relegation battle is a very real prospect.
We’ll be bringing you all the Robins-related items throughout the day plus any relevant Championship news so scroll down for updates.
