(brief) Bristol City preview

Time constraints prevent me from writing a fuller preview, but having enjoyed a thoroughly professional win at Sheffield United, I'll just say that we should expect the same line-up, appeal for the same performance, and hope for the same outcome.

Many of us have been expecting Bristol City's momentum to falter, but their amazing propensity to register single-goal wins has seen them climb to the Championship summit. I'm not sure which was the last team to win two consecutive promotions to reach the Premiership (Manchester City perhaps?), but it would be a marvellous achievement if they managed it.

The nine-point gap between the two sets of 'Robins' is less of a chasm than it seems given tonight's opportunity, and City's amazing goal difference of just +3.

NY Addick predicts: Charlton 2 (Varney, Ambrose), Bristol City 0. Att: 22, 820.
