Preview: Charlton Athletic

City look to get back to winning ways as they host newly-promoted Charlton Athletic on Wednesday night (October 23rd, 7.45pm KO).

City meet the Addicks for the first time since February 2016. That was in fact the final game of the pre-Lee Johnson era who was named the new Robins head coach just hours before kick-off.

City won that contest 1-0 and can be read in more detail below.

WORD FROM THE CAMP

Lee Johnson has demanded his squad bounce back and set high standards following Saturday's loss to Luton Town. He has spoken about the belief in his players as he look forward to returning to Ashton Gate under the lights on Wednesday.

And Pedro Pereira, on loan from Benfica, spoke to Robins TV to discuss how much he has settled into life at City.

Tomlin hit the spot back in 2016

MEMORABLE FIXTURE

Charlton 0-1 City
Saturday, February 6th 2016
Sky Bet Championship
Scorer: Lee Tomlin 21 (p)
Att: 14,342

Lee Tomlin’s first-half penalty was enough to lift Bristol City out of the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone on the day Lee Johnson was announced as the club’s new head coach.

A game of huge significance at the foot of the table was not short on tension but lacked significant goalmouth action.

It was Tomlin who proved to be the match-winner on 21 minutes, picking himself up after he was fouled to dispatch a potentially crucial spot-kick in both sides’ seasons.

Johnson’s appointment on a three-and-a-half-year deal signalled this would be the last of five games in charge for City’s interim management team of John Pemberton and Wade Elliott.

Bristol City XI: O'Donnell, Baker, Little, Flint, Golbourne, Pack, Smith, Freeman, Reid (Wagstaff 66), Tomlin (Wilbraham 61), Kodjia (Agard 78). Subs not used: Fielding, Williams, Pearce, Burns.

AND FINALLY...
