West Ham could return to the Championship's automatic promotion zone tonight - if results go the right way.
A win for Sam Allardyce's side at Ashton Gate this evening - combined with defeat at Peterborough for Southampton - would almost certainly see the Hammers replace the Saints in the top two.
However defeat for United - or even a draw - against the Robins would almost certainly spell the end of the Irons' hopes of usurping Nigel Adkins' side, who have spent nearly the entire season in the promotion zone.
Live updates from Ashton Gate will be provided throughout the evening on our forum match thread, which may be found here: www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=139839.
And for those supporters unable to attend this afternoon's match, streams are unlikely to be available meaning that it's once again to the radio that we must turn.
As usual, any available video - or audio - feeds will be listed in our streaming thread at www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=133293 (a number of which have been posted already).
KUMB.com will, as always, bringing you match summaries at both half time and the final whistle, with the thoughts of both managers to follow this evening/tomorrow morning and those of the opposition fans sometime tomorrow.
