Bristol City v Hull preview

Championship rivals chase 60m place in the top-flight

Bristol City and Hull meet at Wembley on Saturday to contest the Championship play-off final, a match which can be seen live on Sky Sports 1 and HD1.

With a place in the Premier League only 90 minutes away, neither side will need to be informed of the magnitude of the weekend's encounter.

And while money is likely to be at the back of the minds of the 22 players who run out at the home of English football, the potential 60million financial reward - which comes with a place in the top-flight - will also be a welcome boost to both clubs' coffers.

Unusually, it is the two highest finishing sides of the four play-off qualifiers who have reached the final as third-placed Hull make their way to Wembley, while Bristol City are rewarded for concluding their campaign in fourth position.

Neither club have appeared in the Premier League, while Hull have failed to ever feature in the first domestic echelon in their 104-year history to only add to the Tigers' desperation to secure a victory at the weekend.

Full strength

However, it has been 28 years since City graced the top division and the Robins will be in no mood to help their promotion rivals re-write the record books.

Gary Johnson's City side required extra-time to earn a 4-2 semi-final aggregate victory over Crystal Palace last week and the Robins boss is unlikely to stray too far from that starting XI.

Johnson has no injury concerns and has a full complement of players from which to choose his match-day squad of 16.

The City boss insists he already knows his starting line-up, which is likely to see Adriano Basso maintain his place in goal, while Scottish midfielder Michael McIndoe - who performed admirably while scoring against Palace - should also keep his place.

Forward Dele Adebola and McIndoe's fellow goalscoring semi-final hero, Lee Trundle, look set to be charged with the task of cracking Hull's defence.

Tried and tested

Phil Brown has earned the plaudits for his successful job at the KC Stadium this season and the Hull manager will be keen to finish the term in style.

Brown, who saw his side despatch Watford 6-1 on aggregate in the semis, is expected to continue to put faith in the tried and tested as 39-year-old Dean Windass takes a place in the starting line-up alongside veteran Nick Barmby.

Both Hull-born Windass and Barmby have previous Premier League experience and they will hope to use this knowledge to steer their hometown club to glory.

Impressive Welsh defender Samuel Ricketts and winger Richard Garcia should also keep their places.
