    No television or entertainment allowed in pubs at first I think.

    Harris has to start Vaulks and Hoillet. We need a much quicker tempo from the outset than we had against Charlton.
    Given that Adomah has gone back to Forest, it seems inevitable that Hoillet will start, along with NML.

    I get frustrated by the constant sideways passes of Marlon Pack which end up behind the intended receiver.

    I really think we need to set the tone early; Bristol's confidence has to be shot by now, I think they have had 7 losses in the last 8 games.

    That's a shame. He's looked a constant liability in recent games (perhaps for even longer if you ask a certain poster on here).

    Interested to see if Paterson starts up top or if RG9 is fit for this one? If so the latter has to start, this Paterson folly is starting to get ridiculous. He's good for buying cheap free kicks and that's about it.

    That's my thoughts, why show all your skills first , start with the workhorse, then use the more dangerous players as substitutes. As the game wears on opposing side can tire or switch off , and get caught out by newly introduced pace , tactics, skills ??

    The JB did it on purpose knowing he was going to get dogs abuse from a massive partisan crowd.

    Looking forward to watching it at the "proper" football time, 3pm Saturday.

    Neil Harris said it was doubtful Glatzel would feature - apparently a final decision will be made today.

    I agree. Hopefully Ward will be fit otherwise we will be very light up top.

    How does it? Half a game Charlton nothing created, 2/3 of the Leeds and Preston games 1 goal with him on the pitch.

    How's that working?

    We have scored 1 goal with him on the pitch.

    The stat that matters when you talk about it working. He creates nothing

    I think many of us have acknowledged how keeping it tight works, but you don't necessarily need Paterson to do that as the other 9 behind the striker do that..Glatzel could play and we could "keep it tight"

    We only create when players like Paterson leave the pitch, these players aren't just creative because they're playing against tired legs. They can do it from the first whistle.

    You give up. Please do. You're doing me a favour, because you've not got a clue.

    Pray tell, what did Robert create against Charlton ????

    First game I didn't see all season.

    If you read my post again though..
    "but you don't necessarily need Paterson to do that as the other 9 behind the striker do that..Glatzel could play and we could "keep it tight"

    He can at the boring game just as Paterson can. But Paterson can't play the game Glatzel can. 5 goals in 2 games 1 was on the pitch for 1 and the other for 4...

    Not much. But as he's scored twice in the last 3 games, I'll take his recent form over a free kick merchant. We score when Paterson is off the pitch because we bring more talented players on who are far more capable going forward than the aforementioned. Not this 'he tires them down' rubbish, no shit, players get tired after 70 minutes, I'm not sure you can personally credit Paterson with a natural fatigue.

    Paterson certainly serves a role, but up front it is not, and it's quite pathetic that yourself and others have bought into this rhetoric surrounding him. He genuinely isn't even that good at the things people seem to think he is, can't head a ball, his hold up play is average. He can pick out a five yard pass though. Fair do's like.

    That's a cracking reply. But not to worry as Tony gave up the post before his last reply to me so I don't expect he will be replying to common sense posts on this matter any longer.

    Lee Johnson and his coaching staff have all dodged the pre-match press conference. Fans not impressed!

    No not really , in fact we have a squad that's half decent , not the most skilled , more of a robust tough hard running team withbsome skills, we can only play to our strengths

    This is where I'm impressed by what Harris has achieved in a short time , as you see the team adopting a new style as they trying to pass and move differently , with a squad he inherited that was built to do the opposite.

    Recent form

    Bristol City have slipped from play-off contention since the restart, with three successive defeats to Blackburn, Sheffield Wednesday and most recently Nottingham Forest, who earned a 1-0 win at the City Ground on Wednesday.

    Cardiff, meanwhile, have won two and drawn one so far. They started with a surprise 2-0 win over Leeds, before beating Preston 3-1 at Deepdale and then being held to a stalemate by Charlton in midweek.

    Opta stats

    Bristol City are looking to complete a league double over Cardiff for the first time since the 2002-03 season.

    Cardiff have lost two of their last three league games against Bristol City (W1), as many as they had lost in their previous 15 league games against the Robins (W10 D3 L2).

    Cardiff have lost only twice in their last 14 Championship matches (W6 D6), going unbeaten in their last five (W3 D2).

    Bristol City are winless in their last eight league games (D2 L6), their longest run without a victory since January 2017 (9 games).

    Bristol City striker Nahki Wells has been directly involved in six goals in his last three league starts against Cardiff (4 goals, 2 assists), netting a hat-trick earlier this season for QPR against the Bluebirds.
