Bristol City

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:39
In Brief

Bristol City thrashed at home to Brentford. Ashley Williams suspended.

Looking Back

Bristol City were poor on Wednesday as they were hammered 4-0 at home by Bristol City.

Now have lost five of the last six matches.

Looking Ahead

Ashley Williams will be suspended for this one after his red card on Wednesday but with Bailey Wright and Nathan Baker doubtful they may be short of defenders.

Sammie Szmodics and Benik Afobe remain out. No new injuries reported but Lee Johnson bound to consider changes for this one.

Points of Interest

In the league have five wins, four draws and four defeats at home this season.

Shrewsbury

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:29
In Brief

Were out of action on New Year's Day. Played out a draw at Bolton in their most recent game. Max O'Leary cannot play.

Looking Back

Shrewsbury enter the upcoming game relatively well-rested, having not played on New Year's Day.

The Shrews have slowed down a bit of late, having collected only a point from their last two matches.

Looking Ahead

Max O'Leary cannot play, as he is unable to feature due to the terms of his loan, meaning a start for veteran Joe Murphy.

The injury situation remains unchanged compared to last time around.

Meanwhile, Louis Thompson, Luke McCormick and Ousmane Fane have all left the club.

Points of Interest

The sole recent meetings between these sides were in League One in the 2013/14 season. Shrewsbury played out a 1:1 draw away and suffered a 3:2 home defeat.
