Bristol City's Ashton Gate

The Jamaican missed the 1-0 defeat to Birmingham, a result which relegated the Robins to League One, with a back injury but he could return to the heart of Sean O'Driscoll's line-up.

But centre-back Liam Fontaine and midfielder Stephen Pearson are both doubtful for the trip with ankle injuries.

Striker Ryan Taylor is still feeling a little discomfort with his collarbone and the former Rotherham man is extremely doubtful.

Jon Stead and captain Cole Skuse are still sidelined but youngster Wes Burns could make his second appearance of the week after being recalled from his loan spell with Forest Green.

Ironically victory for the Robins over Steve Bruce's men would crown their rivals Cardiff as the champions of the division without a ball being kicked by the south Wales side.
