The EFL Championship returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Bristol City play host to Sheffield United at the Ashton Gate Stadium on Monday.

The Blades will be looking to complete a league double over the hosts after claiming a 2-0 victory back in November’s reverse fixture.

Bristol City returned to winning ways on Friday as they saw off Stoke City 1-0 away from home.

Prior to that, the Robins were on a four-game winless run, claiming two points from the 12 available.

With 48 points from 42 games, Bristol City are currently 18th in the EFL Championship table.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United failed to return to winning ways last time out as they fell to a 2-1 home loss to Reading.

The Blades have now failed to win any of their last two games, while managing just one victory in four outings.

With 65 points from 42 games, Sheffield United are currently sixth in the table, two points above Middlesbrough just outside the playoff places.
