Bristol City vs Fulham
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 21 February 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Fulham have instantly bounced back from a 1-1 slip up away at Macron Stadium where they had been held to a 1-1 draw by Bolton Wanderers ten days ago. The Cottagers have eased past fellow promotional rivals Aston Villa 2-0 at home on Saturday afternoon to climb up to the fifth place in the Championship standings.
Can Slavisa Jokanovic and his men keep the good form going in mid-week when they are set to play another promotional contenders Bristol City at Ashton Gate Stadium? The Robins have started the season in a superb fashion, but the lack of meticulousness at the back in the most recent fixtures caused the run of seven losses, two draws and one win in last ten matches across competitions.
Such poor spell of form has put Bristol’s promotional ambitions in jeopardize and Lee Johnson’s men are desperate to bounce back here against direct rivals in the battle for the top six spots at the end of the season. The hosts will have a very tough task holding in-form Ryan Sessegnon given that their defensive line has allowed as many as five goals in back-to-back league draws with Sunderland and Leeds United.
Ryan Sessegnon has bagged five goals in last five matches for Fulham, including one of team’s two in the mentioned win over Aston Villa at the weekend.
Bristol City vs Fulham: Head-to-head

Interestingly, both sides have been much more successful on travels and Fulham will come into this off the back of three wins in three outings at Ashton Gate Stadium.
This term’s encounter has seen a 0-2 victory for the Robins at Crave Cottage.
