Nuno Espirito Santo’s side played out a goalless draw with their Championship counterparts at Ashton Gate on January 26, but both have previous history when it come to prevailing at the second bite of the cherry.

A total of 16 shots were fired on the Ashton Gate turf during the original encounter, but neither goalkeeper would end up picking the ball out of the back of the net, and a draw was certainly a fair result upon reflection.

The two sides matches one another on the possession counters with 50% apiece, and that forgettable match represents the second game of a four-match winless run for Nottingham, whose new manager bounce under Santo now appears to have worn off.

Narrow defeat to Brentford and Arsenal came either side of their draw at Ashton Gate, and Forest would be forced to do it the hard way to take a point away from Bournemouth in Sunday’s Premier League match, where Callum Hudson-Odoi’s strike cancelled out Justin Kluivert’s early opener.

Arsenal’s midweek victory at the City Ground condemned the Tricky Trees to a fifth loss from their last seven home matches across all competitions, and while they only made it to round four of the FA Cup by virtue of beating Blackpool in a third-round replay, Bristol City have also shown an affinity for rematches in the early knockings of 2024.

On their latest quest to be crowned FA Cup winners for the very first time, Bristol City eliminated West Ham United through a 1-0 replay victory at Ashton Gate, a result which saw Liam Manning have the last laugh against his former club.

However, that memorable beating of the Hammers represents the Robins’ only win from their last nine matches across all competitions, as they subsequently shared the spoils with Forest, Watford and Coventry City before playing host to Leeds United in Friday’s Championship fixture – losing 1-0 at Ashton Gate.

Bristol City now endeavour to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup for the fourth time in six seasons, and they have emerged victorious in their last three fourth-round matches since being eliminated by Burnley at this stage in 2016-17.

Nottingham Forest vs. Bristol City Head to head

Nottingham Forest Team News

Nottingham Forest will definitely be without Divock Origi (groin), as well as AFCON semi-finalists Ola Aina, Willy Boly and Ibrahim Sangare.

Following Senegal’s elimination, Forest allowed Cheikhou Kouyate to remain close to home following his father’s death, and it is yet to be ascertained whether the midfielder will be back in time for this match.

Bristol City Team News

Burnley loanee Scott Twine is ineligible to feature for Bristol City here, having turned out for Hull City in the third round of the FA Cup before heading south, but he is dealing with a thigh problem in any case.

Mark Sykes (hamstring) and Rob Atkinson (ACL) are both back in training but should not come into contention for this game, while Ayman Benarous (ACL) and Kal Naismith (hamstring) are still sidelined.
