Bristol City vs Reading
Saturday 5th October 2019, 3pm
Ashton Gate
Sky Bet Championship

Saturday's journey to Ashton Gate will see the Royals take on a Bristol City side that sit one place outside the Play-Off places in the early Sky Bet Championship table.

Lee Johnson's side have lost just once all season so far in the league, with that defeat coming on the opening day against Leeds United.

Since then, Johnson's men have gone nine games unbeaten as they look to build another challenge for the top six this season, although their progress has been somewhat checked by four draws in their last five matches.

Frontman, Andreas Weimann has started the season well - with four goals to his name already. Former Royal, Benik Afobe also joined the Ashton Gate outfit over the summer on loan from Stoke City, and has netted three times in his first five appearances in the red of the Robins.

The Royals, meanwhile, will be without the suspended John Swift, whose two yellow cards against Fulham saw him given the first red card of his career.
