Come on Bristol City

 

Bristol City v Fleetwood preview

Team news for Sunday's League One clash between Bristol City and Fleetwood Town at Ashton Gate.

Bristol City will still be missing striker Aaron Wilbraham when they welcome play-off chasing Fleetwood on Sunday.

The 35-year-old has resumed training after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a hip problem but is unlikely to feature against the Cod Army.

Boss Steve Cotterill is set to recall George Saville and Mark Little after both were rested for Thursday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash against Gillingham.

Midfielder Joe Bryan could also feature after being an unused substitute.

Fleetwood may hand striker David Ball his first start since his rapid recovery from injury ahead of the trip.

Ball was expected to be out until next month at the earliest after suffering a broken leg back in October but has already made two substitute appearances for the first-team.

Boss Graham Alexander has a selection dilemma upfront with his shot-shy strikeforce of Ball, Jamie Proctor, Stephen Dobbie and Liam McAlinden all without a goal since November 1.

However Jamille Matt (leg) and Danny Andrew (knee) both remain long-term absentees.
