Bristol City travel to Leeds this Saturday (Janurary 22nd) hoping to make it two wins in a row in the Sky Bet Championship.

All of the key information on City's opponents can be found below.

LEEDS UNITED
The Yorkshire club are on a run of five games without a win and have slipped to 17th in the Sky Bet Championship table. Key player and academy product Sam Byram has been sold to West Ham United, while boss Steve Evans has declared his squad is in need of better players. Leeds have a goal-a-game ratio with former City loanee Chris Wood the Whites’ top scorer with eight.

MANAGER
Steve Evans - Glaswegian who spent his playing career in Scotland, mainly with Albion Rovers as a striker. He began his managerial career in non-league with Stamford, before leading Boston United and Crawley Town to the Football League. In 2012, he moved to Rotherham United where he masterminded back-to-back promotions to the Championship but departed in September 2015 due to the club and himself wanting to take things in different directions. Evans took the Leeds job in October 2015.

STAR MAN
Charlie Taylor - Leeds United academy product who has been one of the club’s most consistent performers this season. He broke into first team at Elland Road in 2011, before spending brief spells on loan at Bradford City, York City and Inverness Caledonian Thistle. The left-back spent the majority of the 2013/14 campaign with Fleetwood Town where he helped them to promotion via the League Two play-offs. Taylor has two caps for England under-19s.

OFFICIALS
Charles Breakspear will be the man in the middle. Amy Fearn and Akil Howson will be his assistants. Mark Brown is the fourth official.

TICKETS
No pay on the day - you must buy a ticket by 4pm today.

LAST TIME OUT
Bristol City 2-2 Leeds United - Two late goals secured City their first home point of the season against Leeds. Mirco Antenucci put the visitors ahead from the spot, and Chris Wood doubled their advantage after the break. Substitute Kieran Agard pulled one back with a minute left, before Aden Flint poked home deep into injury-time to restore parity.
