Sports Mole previews this weekend's Championship clash between Blackpool and Bristol City.

Bristol City face a tough away clash as they bid to improve their chances of surviving in the Championship with a victory over Blackpool.

Seasiders manager Paul Ince has yet to clinch a win since taking over at the former Premier League outfit, but the 45-year-old will be encouraged by last weekend's display in a goalless draw with Leicester City, which has kept them 17th in the table.

In contrast, the Robins are struggling at the bottom of the standings on just 34 points, but a pulsating 5-3 victory over Barnsley could kick-start a much-needed run of form for the club.

The home side could line up with an attacking trio of Thomas Ince, Gary Taylor-Fletcher and Matthew Phillips, while City will be relying on goalscorers Steve Davies and Jonathan Stead.
