City unchanged for Rams clash

Lee Johnson has named an unchanged starting XI for City's trip north to face Derby County this afternoon.

With City unbeaten in their last four games, the head coach has shown faith in the same side who started last weekend's 2-2 draw with Norwich City.

It includes a 50th Sky Bet Championship appearance for the Famara Diédhiou, the club's leading goalscorer this season (6 all competitions).

There are two changes on the bench, with Adam Webster having recovered from an Achilles injury, Hakeeb Adelakun is also back in the squad.

City: Mäenpää, Pisano, Webster, Baker, Kelly, Brownhill, Pack (c), Paterson, O'Dowda, Weimann, Diédhiou. Subs: O'Leary, Dasilva, Hunt, Webster, Eliasson, Adelakun, Eisa.

Rams: Carson, Tomori, Keogh (c), Wilson, Mount, Waghorn, Jozefzoon, Nugent, Bogle, Huddlestone, Malone. Subs: Roos, Wisdom, Bryson, Marriott, Pearce, Evans.
