Preview: Swansea City (A)

The penultimate match of the regular 2019/20 Sky Bet Championship season sees City head to South Wales to face Swansea City.

Both teams remain mathematically in the hunt to topple Cardiff City from sixth spot before the season is done but it remains a big ask.

Still, both clubs will be looking to see out their respective campaigns in style. The Robins have picked up form in recent weeks and are unbeaten in their last three games under Interim Head Coach Dean Holden.

Belief is key for both teams and Swans boss Steve Cooper has openly said his club are not yet out of the running. But results at the Liberty Stadium have not gone their way since the restart (W1, L 2) with home advantage possibly a thing of the past without supporters in the stadium. Leeds United were the last visitors to Swansea's turf, who sealed a 1-0 win a week ago as they close in on a likely promotion to the Premier League.

Swansea v City is only available to watch on Robins TV – with pre-match coverage starting from 2pm – as it will not be shown on Sky Sports’ Red Button facility.

Season Card holders who are yet to redeem their unique voucher sent to them via email still can, giving them access to the final scheduled remaining league games.

All non-Season Card holders are able to purchase a £10 matchday pass, which is only valid for Saturday's fixture. Non-Season Card holders should note that only those City matches not selected for broadcast by Sky Sports are available.

Head to the Robins TV website, login with your Bristol Sport Club Account, head to the packages page and select your matchday pass.

WORD FROM THE CAMP

Dean Holden says City have the chance to end the regular season on a high and they are targeting maximum points over the next two games.

“No matter what other teams do, we will focus on ourselves,” Holden said. “There’s still plenty to play for, for sure, and we want to finish the season with six points."

MEMORABLE FIXTURE

Swansea City 0-1 Bristol City
Saturday, August 25th 2018
Sky Bet Championship
Scorers: Andreas Weimann, 1
Att: 20,522

Andreas Weimann pounced inside the first minute to secure a 1-0 win at the Liberty Stadium as City recorded back-to-back victories in the Sky Bet Championship.

The striker flicked the ball past Swansea keeper Mulder after just 31 seconds, as City dominated and controlled much of the game in South Wales.

Niclas Eliasson, Matty Taylor, Callum O’Dowda and loan signing Tomas Kalas all went close to extending the Robins’ advantage but Niki Mäenpää himself was called into action as the second half went by.

Bristol City XI: Mäenpää, Kelly, Hunt, Webster, Kalas, Brownhill, Eliasson, Watkins, Pack, Weimann, Taylor.
