City make three changes for WBA trip

Fresh from scoring the winner against Sheffield United just three days ago, Marley Watkins has been called up to the City starting XI to face West Bromwich Albion.

He is one of three changes to Lee Johnson’s side for the trip to the Hawthorns tonight, where they face WBA (8pm kick-off).

Callum O’Dowda and Matty Taylor are also restored to the starting XI, ahead of Jay Dasilva and Famara Diédhiou.

The match is City's second in seven days and a win tonight would make it five consecutive Sky Bet Championship victories for Johnson's side.

City: Mäenpää (GK), Hunt, Webster, Kalas, Kelly, O’Dowda, Pack (C), Brownhill, Watkins, Weimann, Taylor. Subs: O’Leary (GK), Baker, Dasilva, Walsh, Eliasson, Paterson, Diédhiou.

WBA: Johnstone (GK), Gibbs, Bartley, Hegazi, Dawson (C), Gayle, Barry, Barnes, Philips, Rodriguez, Livermore. Subs: Myhill (GK), Robson-Kanu, Brunt, Mears, Hoolahan, Adarabioyo, Field.
