EFL Championship leaders Bristol City can return to winning ways when they host Middlesbrough at Ashton Gate on Tuesday. The Robins dropped their first points of the season at the weekend, but get an immediate chance to bounce back.

Bristol City Form


Bristol City have enjoyed a near perfect start to the EFL Championship season under Dean Holden with four wins and a draw. They sit top of the standings on goal difference.

The Robins won their opening four league games of the season with a 2-1 home win over Coventry City followed by a 2-0 win at Stoke City. They then defeated Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at home and Nottingham Forest 2-1 on the road.

The 100% record ended on Saturday when Bristol City were held to a 2-2 draw by Barnsley, who equalised with a penalty 11 minutes into added time. Early second half goals from Jack Hunt and Tyreeq Bakinson had looked to have given City another win, only for Cauley Woodrow to level deep into injury time.
