Hello and welcome to this evening’s live matchblog as Bristol City host Nottingham Forest at Ashton Gate needing to make amends for Saturday’s disappointing display against Bournemouth and to end this increasingly concerning home record.
Strange as it may seem, at some point City will win a game of football in BS3 but with each passing 90 minutes on home soil that doesn’t conclude with three points the anxiety grows around the fanbase, prompting further, more wide-reaching questions.
The Robins never really got going against Bournemouth on the weekend, and were second best from pretty much minute one, comprehensively outplayed by a team who look destined for the Premier League.
However, Forest are a slightly different proposition. After a wretched start to the season which saw Chris Hughton sacked and replaced by Steve Cooper.
Since the appointment of the former Swansea head coach there has been a considerable turnaround with four wins and a draw from his opening five games in charge and confidence they are now a club moving forward as opposed to treading water towards the foot of the Championship.
