PREVIEW: Bristol City v Hull City

Saturday's kick in the teeth has left the Tigers with an awful lot to do as they head down into the red half of Bristol this Wednesday evening. With three points seemingly in the bag at the weekend, following an 85th minute opening goal at home to struggling Preston North End, only Hull City could contrive to foul it up - and foul it up they did, deep in stoppage time.

Nigel Adkins was also left worried by the state of Dan Batty's injury in the lead up to Preston's late leveller. The young midfielder suffered a knee injury and it could well sideline the 18 year old for the trip to Ashton Gate. Stephen Kingsley remains ruled out at full back, while the situation is likewise for Evandro at the head of the pitch.

Bristol City were no strangers to some last minute drama themselves at the weekend. The only goal of the game against in-form Brentford was enough to snatch all the points. However, Nathan Baker came off early during that game and the defender needs a fitness test before being considered for selection by manager Lee Johnson. For the record, this fixture produced 15 goals between the sides last season, while the Tigers remain unbeaten in their last four visits to Ashton Gate.
