What does the recent head-to-head record look like?

Portsmouth haven’t played Bristol City in best part of a decade, and their two most recent clashes, in 2011 and 2012, both ended in 0-0 draws.

The two sides did meet at this stage of the FA Cup back in 2009, with Pompey picking up a 2-0 win in a replay after another goalless draw at Fratton Park.
