Bristol City hosts a West Ham side full of confidence, with the hammers sitting pretty at 7 in the Premier League table. Sam Allardyce is likely to stick with inform striking duo Enner Valencia and Andy Caroll for the trip to the West Country with top scorer Sakho still out injured.

Bristol City also find themselves in impressive form, currently lying 2 in League two, having scored 12 goals in their last four games, whilst being unbeaten in their last seven.

The West Country team, who have been in fine scoring form, will hope top scorer Aaron Wilbraham can add to his 10 goal tally on Sunday. And whilst West Ham has accumulated an impressive amount of points lately, they have also conceded 13 goals in their last ten matches.
