Bristol City v Stoke City - Sky Bet Championship
Bristol City will host Swansea - Sky Bet Championship

Bristol City will host Swansea City at Ashton Gate on Sunday (January 8) in the third round of the FA Cup.

The hosts have had a largely poor campaign after a fairly decent start to their season. Bristol played out a 1-1 draw at Coventry City in their last game. Antoine Semenyo scored the equaliser midway through the first half to help snap a 17-game goal drought for the Robins.

Bristol were knocked out at this stage of the FA Cup last season with a 1-0 defeat to Fulham and will hope for better luck this time.

Swansea, meanwhile,have also had their struggles this season but remain hopeful of securing a playoff spot.

After closing out 2022 on a high with a 4-0 trouncing of Watford, the Swans lost 2-1 to league leaders Burnley in their first game of the new year. They conceded two stunning strikes in the opening 25 minutes before Oliver Cooper reduced the deficit.
