Bournemouth host Bristol City at the Vitality Stadium in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides having contrasting seasons so far.

Bournemouth are currently 2nd in the league, eight points off Fulham at the top of the table with a game in hand. Scott Parker's side have been in inconsistent form of late, having won only two of their last five games. They will look to close the gap at the top of the table with a win against Bristol on Saturday.

Bristol City, on the other hand, have been woeful of late, having only managed to win one of their last five games. Nigel Pearson's side are currently 18th in the league, 16 points above the relegation zone. They will hope to climb up the table with a win against Bournemouth on Saturday.

This will be a great opportunity for Bournemouth to close the gap on Fulham by beating a poor Bristol side.
