Bristol City supporters have reached a point where they are probably dreading games at Ashton Gate, their winless run at their home ground having been extended to 17 matches.
Not only do the Robins keep failing to emerge victorious on familiar territory, they continue to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the latest episode seeing them concede twice in added-on time to lose 2-1 to Nottingham Forest.
Bristol City have now been denied wins at Ashton Gate by last-minute goals on three occasions, leaving Pearson searching for answers to countless questions that he must have.
A 3-0 reverse at West Bromwich Albion last weekend did nothing to lift the mood in the South-West, and there is a feeling that Pearson has reached a pivotal period during his time at the club.
Still only five points adrift of the playoffs, things can change for the better with victory at the weekend, but defeat will only give encouragement to a potential relegation rival.
With Nathan Baker expected to sit this game out, Pearson must decide whether to use Cameron Pring as a straight replacement or switch to a back four.
The first option appears most likely, and Pearson has another big call to make regarding George Tanner after substituting the young full-back after just 34 minutes last week.
Callum O’Dowda is in contention for a recall to the team, potentially taking the place of Nahki Wells.
