GAMEDAY – Bristol City Away – and a Competition
Blues face managerless Bristol City away hoping to build further on back to back 3-0 victories against Derby County and Ipswich Town.
Bristol City lie in the relegation spots in the Championship in 22nd place with just 24 points, 15 places and 22 points behind Blues. The Robins have won one in their last eight games but that was at home to high flying Middlesbrough so Blues should be ware of John Pemberton and Wade Elliott’s men.
Former Blues target Lee Tomlin is expected to start after signing on loan from Bournemouth along with fellow loanee Scott Golbourne; Mark Little could replace Luke Ayling at full-back.
Blues have added recent signings Diego Fabbrini and Ryan Shotton to their squad, as well as Jacques Maghoma who has recovered from illness. Maikel Kieftenbeld has struggled with a hip knock but is expected to be fit; Nicolai Brock-Madsen however will miss out with injury.
I would expect having won 3-0 twice on the bounce that Gary Rowett may not change a thing he doesn’t have to and go with the same team that played against Ipswich. The only player who might miss out completely is Charlee Adams as the spare man left with three incoming.
Rob Lewis takes charge of this game. He’s been in the middle for 18 games so far this season, showing 57 yellow cards and three reds. His last Blues game was the 2-1 win over Ipswich in January 2012 in which just one Ipswich player was cautioned.

8 Yellow Cards: Maikel Kieftenbeld
