On the back of their victory at Cardiff City before the international break, Robins boss Nigel Pearson would have expected his Bristol City side to build on that result.
However, the wait for their next success at Ashton Gate was extended to 13 matches as Preston earned a deserved goalless draw.
There were positives to take from the result with Bristol City going successive matches in the Championship without defeat for the first time since the middle of April.
Nevertheless, Pearson will view the contest as one which his team need to be winning if they want to be regarded as contenders for a playoff spot.
While Pearson and Bristol City were left disappointed with collecting a point at the weekend, the same cannot be said of Luton Town boss Nathan Jones.
The Hatters were well on their way to defeat at Blackburn when they trailed 2-0 heading into the closing quarter of the contest at Ewood Park.

A double from Luke Berry ultimately salvaged a point for Luton, his second goal in the seventh minute of added-on time instigating wild celebrations from the visitors.

That said, Luton now possess the joint third-worst defensive record in the Championship, highlighting that improvements will need to be made at the back over the coming weeks
