Cotterill In For Second City Debut

Lee Johnson hands a debut to one of his two deadline day signings as City host Rotherham United in a crunch clash at Ashton Gate (3pm).

David Cotterill is in for Callum O’Dowda, but Matty Taylor has to be content with a place on the bench.

Former City keeper Richard O’Donnell starts in goal for the visitors.
