Bristol City v Norwich City live stream, Sky Sports, Saturday 31 October, 12.30pm GMT

 

It’s sixth against seventh at Ashton Gate this weekend, as Bristol City and Norwich City both seek their fifth win of the Championship season.

Both teams have taken 14 points from their eight games so far, having each won four, drawn two and lost two in the opening weeks. However, they head into this game in contrasting form: whereas Bristol City are without a win in four, Norwich have taken 10 points from the last 12 available.

A 1-1 draw at Brentford in midweek denied the Canaries a fourth consecutive win, but Daniel Farke will be delighted by the way his team have bounced back from a disappointing start. Norwich were underwhelming for large parts of the Premier League campaign last time out, and ultimately went down with a whimper. Yet having kept hold of the likes of Emiliano Buendia, Todd Cantwell, Teemu Pukki and Max Aarons, there is no reason they shouldn’t be targeting automatic promotion in 2020/21.

Bristol City’s objective isn’t quite as ambitious, but the Robins will hope to still be in the play-off positions after all 46 fixtures have been fulfilled. However, a 1-0 defeat by Bournemouth on Wednesday means a month has now passed since their last victory, and Dean Holden is under pressure to arrest his side’s slide this weekend.

The hosts remain without centre-back Alfie Mawson, who faces at least another month on the treatment table with a knee injury. Andi Weimann is another absentee after the Austrian damaged his anterior cruciate ligament in the draw with Swansea last weekend.

Norwich will have to make do without the suspended Adam Idah, while Onel Hernandez, Christoph Zimmermann, Sam Byram and Kieran Dowell are all sidelined with various ailments. Left-back could be a problem position for the Canaries at Ashton Gate, with midfielder Jacob Sorensen likely to stand in if Xavi Quintilla fails a fitness test.

Kick-off is at 12.30pm GMT and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Bristol City v Norwich City live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jamie Vardy goal. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
