Sports Mole previews the Championship match between Burnley and Bristol City.

Burnley welcome Bristol City to Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon, with both teams looking for three points as they aim to secure Championship status for next season.

Despite sitting in mid-table, Burnley are four points ahead of the bottom three and their safety is not yet guaranteed.

Meanwhile, Bristol City currently prop up the Championship having won just one of their last six league matches. Sean O'Driscoll's side are seven points adrift of safety with six games remaining.

Burnley have drawn four of their last six games, including Monday's 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest, where they conceded a stoppage-time penalty.

Sean Dyche could select an unchanged lineup from the Forest game, which would see top scorer Charlie Austin continue to partner Sam Vokes up front and Junior Stanislas retain his place in midfield.

Bristol City have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game, with Paul Anderson and Albert Adomah in contention to start after both came off the bench in Monday's 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday.
