Stoke City v Bristol City Live Stream : Watch Sunday Championship Clash as Michael O’Neill eyes home win

Stoke City host Bristol City in Sunday’s solitary Championship fixture at 2pm as both sides look to build on unbeaten opening weekends. Here’s all you need to know about watching Stoke v Bristol live streaming this afternoon.

Is the Stoke City v Bristol City match on Sky?

Unfortunately the game is not being shown live on Sky today. Fans can watch the match through the official Stoke City website or follow live updates on Stoke on Trent Live.

Stoke were held to a goalless draw at Millwall, while Thomas Kalas’ late winner against Coventry earned Bristol City all three points in a 2-1 win at Ashton Gate.

Stoke came into the season as one of the early favourites to secure at least a play-off spot, and their point at Millwall – a notoriously difficult place to win – is certainly a solid foundation to build from.

At Bristol City, eyebrows were raised when Lee Johnson was replaced as head coach of the club by his assistant Dean Holden.

However, it’s been a promising start for the inexperienced boss: Saturday’s league win against Coventry was sandwiched by two wins-to-nil in the EFL Cup against Exeter City and Northampton Town to earn a third-round home tie against Aston Villa, and begin to win round those fans doubting his credentials.

Despite this, Stoke are the favourites at evens to win this match, with the draw 5/2 and a Bristol City win 14/5.

O’Neill made seven changes for Stoke’s trip to Wolves in midweek, with only goalkeeper Andy Davies, Bruno Martins-Indi, Tommy Smith and Sam Vokes retaining their place from the draw at Millwall.

After the superb win against Premier League opposition, the former Northern Ireland manager admitted, “Tonight, they’ve given me a lot to think about.” Jacob Brown is surely one of those who will come into his manager’s thinking for a starting berth after his dramatic late winner.

Ryan Shawcross is likely to miss out through injury, but otherwise there appears to be a clean bill of health at the bet365 Stadium.

Holden, meanwhile, also made several changes for Bristol City’s win against Northampton, meaning the majority of his first XI should be fresh for the trip to Stoke.

Three of those changes were bringing in new signings Alfie Mawson, Steven Sessegnon and Chris Martin, who scored the opening goal in the convincing 4-0 win.

It remains to be seen whether Martin, who scored 11 league goals for Derby County last season, or indeed Kasey Palmer who scored twice in the cup win, will displace either Famara Diedhiou or Nahki Wells for the trip to Stoke.

Should Martin get the nod, 7/2 for the target man looks a great price for him to score anytime (Betfair).

Like O’Neill, Holden certainly has some tough decisions to make, with the 41-year-old joking he’d be taking a “trip the chemist for some paracetamol” due to the plethora of options at his disposal.

Club captain Kalas, however, is doubtful after being replaced in the first-half due to a shoulder injury.
