Albion v Bristol City match preview

ALBION host Bristol City at The Hawthorns on Tuesday evening as Darren Moore’s men look to continue their impressive home form.

The opposition 

Bristol City have made a strong start to the season and currently sit third in the Sky Bet Championship table on 14 points from their first seven fixtures.

Lee Johnson’s side finished 11th last season and notably reached the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, beating Manchester United in the last eight before going out to Manchester City.

They had a busy summer, bringing in the likes of Marley Watkins, Adam Webster, Andreas Weimann, Mo Eisa and Niki Maenpaa - but also losing Aden Flint, Hordur Magnusson, Bobby Reid and Joe Bryan.

Last time out 

The most recent fixture between the two teams was an FA Cup third round replay at Ashton Gate after a 2-2 draw in the original game at The Hawthorns.

Salomon Rondon’s second half effort was enough to send the Baggies through to the fourth round with a 1-0 win in 2016.
