Despite 66% possession and five shots on target, Bristol City couldn’t find a way past Neil Warnock and his Huddersfield side in midweek as they played out a goalless draw at the John Smith’s stadium. At home, it has been a different story in recent weeks however, with Nigel Pearson’s men currently on a five match unbeaten run, alternating between a win and a draw at Ashton Gate.
They welcome a Blackpool side who currently sit in the relegation zone, six points from safety, having picked up just seven wins from their 35 matches this term. The Tangerines have lost each of their five league away matches on the bounce and are without a win on the road in their last nine, since a 2-1 win over Coventry at the end of October.
Mick McCarthy’s side do have an impressive record against Bristol City however, winning three and drawing five of the last eight meetings between the two sides.
