All you need to know ahead of Monday afternoon's Professional Development League clash with the Robins...
Fixture: Hull City U23s vs Bristol City U23s
Where: Eon Visual Media Stadium
When: Monday 26th March 2018
The Under-23s return to Professional Development League action when they host their Bristol City counterparts at the Eon Visual Media Stadium on Monday afternoon.
Following back-to-back defeats at the hands of Nottingham Forest and Leeds United, Jon Beale's responded well to claim all three points last time out as Tom Powell's second-half brace secured a 2-1 win away at Burnley and will be looking to keep alive their faint hopes of securing a play-off place when facing the Robins, going into the game three points behind second-placed Forest - albeit having played two games more.
Bristol City side are currently in the midst of a fixture pile-up, having played three games in the space of just eight days last week - a run which started with a 1-0 defeat away at Ipswich Town, before a 2-2 draw with Birmingham City and a convincing 3-0 victory over Colchester United.
They also face a further game this week with a trip to Swansea City in the knockout stages of the Premier League Cup on Thursday.

Last Time Out: Colchester United 0 Bristol City 3
A blistering first-half performance saw Bristol City Under-23s cruise to a 3-0 win over their Colchester United counterparts in Essex.
George Nurse broke the deadlock inside two minutes, although Tarryn Allarakhia almost provided a quick-fire response for the hosts, only to see his effort bounce back off the inside of the post.
The Robins doubled their lead on the half-hour when Nurse found the back of the net with a sweetly-struck right-foot shot and the rout was completed five minutes later when Morton took aim from distance and found the far corner of the net.
Bristol City: Wollacott, Turner-Williams, Parsons, Harvey Smith, Baldwin, Nurse, Richards, Morton (Allen), Bakinson, Semenyo (Z.Smith), Akpobire (Day).
