Baker returns for Severnside derby

Nathan Baker returns to City's starting line-up for the Severnside derby with Cardiff City at Ashton Gate (12noon).

Baker's inclusion is one of three enforced changes made by head coach Lee Johnson, with Eros Pisano and Jamie Paterson ruled out through injury and Bailey Wright being suspended.

Pisano will be ruled out for three to four months after scans showed the Italian had torn his hamstring from the bone. Paterson also has a hamstring problem, sustained in training yesterday, but he should be fit after the international break.

Hordur Magnusson and Milan Djuric - making his first league start of the season - are recalled.

City: Fielding, Smith (C), Flint, Baker, Magnusson, O'Dowda, Pack, Brownhill, Bryan, Djuric, Reid. Subs: Steele, Bakinson, Vyner, Eliasson, Leko, Woodrow, Taylor.

Cardiff City: Etheridge, Peltier, Morrison, Manga, Bamba, Ralls, Bryson, Paterson, Mendez-Laing, Hoilett, Bogle. Subs: Murphy, Tomlin, Ward, Feeney, Halford, Connolly, Damour.

Referee: Mike Jones.
