David Wagner registered his first win since becoming Town's head coach with a 2-0 win over Birmingham City last weekend thanks to goals from Joe Lolley and Nahki Wells.

Wagner's 'gengenpressing' style of football paid off after just 31 seconds as Lolley found the net to opening the scoring against Birmingham.

Keeping a clean sheet was also a boost and it was their first since October.

The visitors Bristol City are two places below Town in the Championship table in 21st place and are kept out of the relegation places by goal difference.

Steve Cotterill's side have only won once in their last eight games, losing the last two on the bounce, and scored just once in their last four matches
