The struggling Tricky Tree visitors take on a Championship side with a fourth round upset in mind. Which team will book their place in the next stage of the FA Cup? You can watch a Bristol City vs Nottm Forest live stream from anywhere with a VPN to find out.
Bristol City have already defeated top flight opposition in the FA Cup this season, having dumped high-flying West Ham out of the competition earlier this month. Liam Manning's side held the Hammers to a draw at the London Stadium after Jarrod Bowen had given the home side a fifth-minute lead, but it took Tommy Conway even less time to put the Robins ahead in the replay. That proved to be the only goal of a game in which Saïd Benrahma was shown a straight red card for kicking out at Joe Williams.
Nottm Forest also needed two attempts to progress to this stage of the FA Cup. They managed to fight back from 2-0 down to secure the replay against Blackpool in the third round, in which the Tangerines managed to repeat the feat to force the game into extra time. Fortunately for Forest boss Nuno Espírito Santo, Chris Wood's 110th-minute goal prevented the game from going to penalties, setting up this finely poised tie with Bristol City.
Here's how the teams line up:
Bristol City XI: O'Leary (GK); Tanner, Vynerm Dickie, McCrorie, Pring, James, Gardner-Hickman; Knight, Mehmeti, Conway.
Nottm Forest XI: Turner (GK); Tavares, Montiel, Omovamidele, Murillo; Danilo, Mangala; Dominguez, Yates, Hudson-Odoi; Wood.
Will the Robins manage to overcome their opponents, or will Forest's extra quality prove too much? Here's how to watch a Bristol City vs Nottm Forest live stream where you are.
