Fielding back in the building

Frank Fielding is set to make his first start of the season after recovering from illness and injury.

The City shotstopper is one of four changes as Head Coach Lee Johnson also hands starts to Eros Pisano, Nathan Baker and Jay Dasilva.

City have been unable to call on Jack Hunt and Niki Mäenpää, (both calf strains), while Adam Webster (ankle sprain), Matty Taylor (hip flexor) and Marley Watkins (ankle) also miss out.

City starting XI: Fielding, Pisano, Baker, Kalas, Dasilva, Brownhill, Pack (c), Paterson, Weimann, O’Dowda, Diédhiou. Subs: O’Leary, Wright, Kelly, Morrell, Adelakun, Palmer, Eisa.

Forest starting XI: Pantilimon, Yacob (c), Janko, Robinson, Lolley, Colback, Cash, Osborn, Benalouane, Grabban, Murphy. Subs: Steele, Guedioura, Watson, Carvalho, Goncalves, Yates, Dias.

City will be backed by more than 1,500 supporters for the Sky Bet Championship clash.
