Live on Sky Sports: Bristol City v Hull City

20 November 2015

There's been no shortage of match-ups between Bristol City and Hull City since they first met 110 years ago - but one clash in particular stands above the rest.

THAT game

It was at the climax of the 2007/08 Championship season, and Premier League status was the prize on offer to both clubs.

Two experienced campaigners – Phil Brown and Gary Johnson – led the sides out in front of more than 86,00 people, with one of them about to make history.

With so much at stake, it was no surprise that there was just the one goal that settled things, or rather, one moment of magic.

Hull's Dean Windass, at the age of 39, struck one of the most memorable goals ever seen at the venue just before half-time to fire the Tigers into ascendancy, and it was a lead they would not surrender.



The here and now

Seven years on, and the two clubs find themselves battling it out in the Championship again. 

Hull, like in 2007/08, are well placed again, and sit top of the table after 16 games - ahead of Brighton & Hove Albion courtesy of better goal difference. 


Bristol City, on the back of a Sky Bet League 1 and Johnstone's Paint Trophy double last season, have had a tough introduction back into the division, with just three wins amassed so far. 

Watch it live!

The pair kick-off the Saturday action, and while the fixtures represent good memories for Hull fans, the Robins will be back in the home surroundings of Ashton Gate, where they've lost to the Tigers just once in the last 20 meetings there. 

The game is live on Sky Sports, with build-up getting under way at 12pm and the on-field action beginning half an hour later. 

As well as that, we'll be providing live updates on our official Twitter account, @SkyBetChamp.
