History of the Crystal Palace v Bristol City fixture

Crystal Palace prepare to entertain Bristol City at Selhurst Park on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Eagles are clearly on top, having won 23 and lost only 8 of the 37 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Selhurst Park was just last season, in November 2008, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-2 thriller, in a Championship match.
