History of the Bristol City v Notts. County fixture

Bristol City prepare to entertain Notts. County at Ashton Gate on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Robins are clearly on top, having won 28 and lost only 9 of the 46 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ashton Gate was less than a year ago, in December 2002, as the Robins squeezed past their rivals by a scoreline of 3-2 in a League Division Two match.
