Burnley left it late to find an equaliser but they were awarded a penalty in the 93rd minute, with Andre Gray stepping up to score.

City In Poor Form

Lee Johnson’s side come into this match on the back of another defeat, this time away at Nottingham Forest.

Ben Osborn scored the only goal of the game (67), to end Forest’s own dismal record without a win.

This is another big blow for manager Lee Johnson, who despite a bright start to the season is enduring a very tough run of results.

The hardest recent result to take would have been the 3-2 defeat, in the Severnside derby against Cardiff.

It was their 8th successive defeat in the Championship, they have managed to scrape a win against Fleetwood during that time though.

Cup Relief

The FA Cup could provide welcome relief for the visitors, who Championship struggles have been well documented.

They are just two points off the relegation zone, with Wigan and Burton narrowly behind them.

Their passage into this round was less than smooth, they struggled to beat Fleetwood Town over two legs, eventually triumphing 1-0 away.

Bristol Underdogs

City come into this match as the underdogs, with their dismal record informing those odds.

They will be looking to gain their second win in their last ten matches, with their last win coming away in the FA Cup.

Johnson’s side will be looking to better their overall record against Burnley, with City winning 6, drawing 7 and losing 9 of their 22 meetings.
