Planners at Bristol City Council have recommended that plans to re-develop Bristol City's Ashton Gate stadium be approved. The final decision will be made by the council's planning committee next Wednesday (27 November).

If Bristol City get the go-ahead to re-build Ashton Gate then they are likely to abandon plans to construct a new stadium nearby at Ashton Vale. The Ashton Vale development has been hit by delays and the club are currently awaiting the outcome of a town and village green application for the site.

And it was a hard fought game - which ended goalless.

The Robins will bring home a well-earned point and the satisfaction of making life more difficult for Hull who are hoping for automatic promotion to the Premiership.
