PREVIEW: Bristol City

3 January 2020

Marcus Braddock previews Town's trip to Ashton Gate.

This weekend it's the turn of Bristol City to host Shrewsbury Town in the Emirates F.A. Cup, third round. When this game was drawn out of the hat at the start of December, City were in a bit of a purple patch of form and only three defeats all season. Since then their form has dipped considerably, losing five games in seven in the Skybet Championship. Their most recent win was on the 29th December when they beat Luton 3-0 at home but they followed that up with a 4-0 home defeat to Brentford on New Years Day. As if losing 4-0 at home wasn't enough, they also lost defender Ashley Williams after 13 minutes to a red card which means he wont be available this weekend.

Clean Sheets

Five at home and one away.



City have failed to score in 31% of their games at home this season, or put another way, they've scored in 69% of their home games.

They get stronger as the half progresses with 21 goals scored in the last fifteen minutes of either half.

On average, 2.9 goals have been scored per game at Ashton Gate this season. This includes 1.5 per game from City, which is the same as the average for the Championship.

Squad News

Max O'Leary isn't allowed to play against his parent club so Joe Murphy will replace him. Ryan Sears and Callum Lang could be available for selection after injuries.



This was a game that looked difficult when it was drawn and it looks equally difficult, despite City being in a sticky patch of form. They have quality going through the squad and really should be beating teams like us. Having said that, it's the F.A. Cup 3rd round and there are always upsets. This wouldn't be a major one in the grand scheme of things but anything other than defeat has to be considered an excellent result.

Fourth official: James Durkin

First Half:

Despite tackling higher league opposition, Town started the game in positive fashion and managed a handful of shots at the Robbins goal. Daniel Udoh and Ryan Giles proved to be tough to deal with for the home side’s defence and looked continually dangerous on the attack.

An end-to-end game ensued as the clock ticked towards the 30-minute mark. The home side slowly grew into the fixture but Salop remained solid and looked to threaten the City back line at any given chance.

It was the home side that broke the deadlock in the 29th minute. Famara Diedhiou rose well in the Town box and managed to head an effort back across goal and into the far corner to give his team a first-half lead.

After notching the opener, City grew in confidence and were looking to break down Town’s back line. Joe Murphy was forced into a save with five minutes left in the tie. Kasey Palmer struck a powerful effort towards goal but Murphy covered the goal well to parry the ball away.

The home side went into the half time break with a one-goal advantage. Despite Town looking dangerous on the break, Sam Ricketts’ men were unable to notch an equaliser.

Second Half:

However, Town were able to secure an equaliser in the second-half and did so with just three minutes on the clock. Sean Goss picked up the ball on the edge of the box and struck the ball through a number of bodies to find the back of the net.

Ethan Ebanks-Landell was booked in the 51st minute for a foul near the edge of the Salop box.

Just five minutes later, Scott Golbourne was booked for a foul in a similar position.

Josh Laurent came inches away from putting Town in the lead with just over an hour on the clock. The midfielder picked up the ball on the right-wing and fired in a cross. Despite looking for a Town man, the ball flew towards goal but rebounded back out off the post.

Shaun Whalley almost made an instant impact when the forward was introduced to the game. Ollie Norburn slid in a great through ball but Whalley was unable to find the end product and the ball was cleared well.

With 5-minutes of normal time remaining Town made another chance, Ryan Giles came off to be replaced by Callum Lang who was making his first appearance for three months since picking up an injury.

With full-time approaching both sides were pushing for a winner, Town got into a number of good positions and when City did the Town defence and Murphy were holding strong.

The fourth official showed there would be four minutes of added time for either side to stop the game going to replay at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.

In added time Town had City pinned in their half with a string of corners, but despite causing problems in the home-sides box Town couldn't get the goal their performance probably deserved.

Full-time: 1-1
