Dean Holden will be looking for a response from his Bristol City side when they welcome Blackburn Rovers to Ashton Gate tomorrow night.
The Robins produced a dismal display on Saturday as Birmingham City, who went into the game without a win since October, outplayed them and won 1-0.
That result has seen them slip out of the top six, though should they beat Blackburn tomorrow evening they could well climb back up the table.
Rovers hold top-six aspirations of their own, however, and the Championship’s top scorers are likely to prove a tough opposition on Wednesday.
With that in mind, Holden will want to field as strong a side as he can against Blackburn and we’ve rounded up all the latest team news with the clash looming.
The big festive Bristol City quiz: Can you get 20/20?
It appears creative midfielder Jamie Paterson could be missing once again as Holden told the Bristol Post that he continues to suffer from pain related to a hip issue.
Other than that, the City boss indicated that the squad was likely to be the same as it was for the trip to St Andrew’s on Saturday.
There was good news looking further ahead, however, as Holden revealed that they should have five or six of their missing back by early next year.
It is understood that injured Fulham loanees Alfie Mawson and Steven Sessegnon are back with City as they continue their rehab, while Nathan Baker has been back training on grass.
