City name trio of defensive changes

Bristol City have named three defensive changes as they seek to end their winless run away from home.

Returning to the side for the trip to Burton Albion is Eros Pisano, makes who makes only his second appearance of the calendar year as he looks to put his hamstring injury firmly behind him.

Lloyd Kelly has been granted a start at left-back, with Nathan Baker also restored to the starting XI.

Suspensions to Joe Bryan and Aden Flint mean the defensive pair sit out today's fixture, with Hordur Magnusson moved to the bench.

Milan Djuric, who played 30 minutes for the U23s last week as he returns from a long-term groin injury, is also named among the substitutes.

The Sky Bet Championship match between City and the Brewers at the Pirelli Stadium kicks off at 3pm.

Burton Albion: Bywater, Akins, McFadzean, Naylor, McRory, Akpan, Sordell, Boyce, Flanagan, Murphy, Bent. Subs: Buxton, Campbell, Dyer, Davenport, Samuelsen, Allen, Sbarra.

Bristol City: Fielding, Pisano, Wright, Baker, Kelly, Brownhill, Pack, Smith, Paterson, Reid, Diédhiou. Subs: Steele, Magnusson, Kent, Eliasson, Walsh, Diony, Djuric.

Referee: Oliver Langford.
