Preview: Wigan Athletic

City head to the home of the Latics where Wigan Athletic are without a win since October.

City's sights are set on what would be a first win of 2020 and the Robins will want to draw on the recent 3-0 victory over Luton Town as inspiration.

Fresh from a mini rest after last weekend's Emirates FA Cu draw with Shrewsbury, City will also be aiming to capitalise on Wigan's poor form which sees them fighting it out in relegation waters, while the Robins can keep a float with the top six with a positive result.

Word from the camp

Lee Johnson is looking forward to a big week of football after a mini break but first and foremost says his players have to believe as they go in search of a positive result at the DW Stadium.

And left-back Jay Dasilva is keen to crack on with his football after five months on the sidelines through injury.

A dramatic late turnaround clinched a memorable victory for Bristol City on the opening day of the season at the expense of Sky Bet League One champions Wigan Athletic.

A double substitution from Lee Johnson midway through the second half was the catalyst, as debut hero Tammy Abraham headed City level with nine minutes to go, before Bobby Reid redirected Gary O’Neil’s shot past Adam Bogdan for the winner.
