Brownhill and Eliasson restored to starting XI

Niclas Eliasson earns his first City start since January, while Josh Brownhill features at right-back against Sheffield United this afternoon.

The pair step into Lee Johnson's starting XI ahead of Liam Walsh, who is named on the bench, and Nathan Baker who is ruled out after suffering concussion last weekend.

City's top scorer Bobby Reid also starts as he seeks to end the campaign as the Championship Golden Boot winner.

Youngsters Tyreeq Bakinson and Antoine Semenyo are also named on the City bench.

City v the Blades kicks off at 12.30pm at Ashton Gate.
