Lee Johnson’s side had made a promising start to the 2016/17 season and were fifth in the league table in October. But now, they are 20th in the standings, with 2 points keeping them above the relegation zone.

Sheffield Wednesday sit at the final play-off spot, but they have plenty of pressure from three teams below them who stay at a 3 point distance. They were on a 6 match unbeaten run before losing 2-1 to the league leaders Brighton in the previous round. Carlos Carvalhal guided the club to play-off last season and will be looking for a similar feat in this season as well.
