City kicked off 2018 with a home comeback win over Millwall, making it seven points from a possible nine since their pre-Christmas home defeat to Brentford.
They also held on for a goalless draw with Premier League Chelsea, in their FA Cup third-round tie at Carrow Road last time out.
Meanwhile, Bristol City have had a busy time of it. They have lost their last four games, including league games against leaders Wolves and a 5-0 thrashing at Aston Villa.
They were also knocked out of the FA Cup at top-flight Watford, before narrowly losing their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City in midweek.
The Robins resume league action sat in fourth place, just two points off the automatic promotion places.
It’s back to the FA Cup following Saturday, with City’s third round replay at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night (7.45pm).
Carrow Road then hosts the much-anticipated return fixture with Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United next Saturday (3pm), before a Championship trip to Brentford – or an FA Cup fourth round visit from Newcastle United – the following weekend.
