Sports Mole looks ahead to Saturday's Championship clash between Bristol City and Barnsley.

Bristol City welcome the Championship's in-form team to Ashton Gate on Saturday afternoon, with Barnsley having won five of their last six league matches.

The Robins have dropped to the bottom of the league following their 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace in midweek and are six points adrift of safety.

Barnsley are also under threat from relegation but have pulled themselves out of the bottom three with their recent good form. Their 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday moved them two points ahead of the relegation zone.

Bristol City manager Sean O'Driscoll could make changes to the side beaten at Selhurst Park, with Steven Davies, Paul Anderson and Richard Foster pushing for starts.

Barnsley boss David Flitcroft may be without Kelvin Etuhu as the player continues to recover from a facial injury. Jacob Mellis could start after coming off the bench to net the winning goal against Wolves.
