The Royals’ poor form in the last week-and-a-half has lead to them being nine points off the automatic places, although they are still comfortable in the play-offs, with them being eight points clear of seventh.
Meanwhile, the Robins are having a worse time in comparison, winning once in their last six Championship games, losing the other five. The most recent being the worst loss of them all, losing 6-0 to Watford on Saturday.
Bristol City manager Dean Holden is expected to make a number of changes after their drubbing on the weekend, with him potentially reverting back to a 4-3-3 formation.
Adam Nagy, Tyreeq Bakinson and Adrian Mariappa could all return to the starting eleven.
Veljko Paunovic is going to be without John Swift for the next six weeks and Yakou Meite after they both sustained injuries last week. George Puscas, Liam Moore, and Felipe Araruna are nearing a return but are unlikely to feature.
Bentley; Mariappa, Vyner, Kalas, Hunt, Bakinson, Nagy, Lansbury, Wells, Semenyo, Diedhiou.
Rafael; Yiadom, Morrison, McIntyre, Richards, Laurent, Rinomhota, Olise, Ejaria, Semedo, Joao.
Ones to watch
The club captain has been excellent at times this season, in what has been an inconsistent season for the Robins thus far. The Czech has more blocks and clearances per game than any other Bristol City player.
The Portuguese man has been electrifying this season, scoring 16 goals in the Championship this season. He has struggled with injury in the past hindering his development, but a mostly injury-free season has resulted in brilliant numbers.
