Bristol City have lost eight of their last 10 games but are looking to win their third game in four since Nigel Pearson was appointed.  Queens Park Rangers are hoping to get back to winning ways as they remain winless in three.

A win for Bristol City could put them seven points off the play-off places if results go their was whereas a win for QPR will push them even further away from the relegation zone. 

Most recently, City lost at home to AFC Bournemouth 2-1. 

Tyreek Barkinson finished his second goal of the season to open the scoring with a looping header before a Dan Bentley own-goal levelled the two sides, moments from half-time. 

In the 88th minute, Cameron Carter-Vickers won the game for the Cherries with a header, bouncing just infront of Bentley to make it 2-1. 

QPR also faced defeat, losing 3-1 at Loftus Road. Daryl Dike put Barnsley 1-0 up for a short period of time as Charlie Austin quickly equalised minutes later.  

However, Alex Mowatt responded even quicker than the R's, putting the visitors ahead in the 29th minute. 

In the 56th minute, substitution, Carlton Morris made an instant impact,  scoring within seconds of his appearance. Sealing the three points for the Tykes.
