League One - Osborne set for Robins recall

Derrick Williams has signed a three-year deal with Bristol City

The former Aston Villa defender is with the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad and misses out so Karleigh Osborne is poised to deputise in the Robins defence having been ineligible to face Dagenham in the FA Cup last weekend.

Head coach Sean O'Driscoll is sweating on the fitness of Joe Bryan who sustained a knock in their victory over Crawley while Scott Wagstaff is a doubt with a knee injury.

One player who will not be involved is midfielder Neil Kilkenny who has joined Preston on loan and seems unlikely to play for the club again.
