Johnson makes one change to face Rams

Hordur Magnusson returns to the City starting XI against Derby County in tonight's Sky Bet Championship encounter.

He is Lee Johnson’s only change to the side which kicked off against Norwich City on Saturday, as the Icelandic international steps in to replace Liam Walsh, who is named among the substitutes.

Senegal striker Famara Diédhiou is another named on the bench, meaning he could make his first City appearance since suffering a knee injury in October.

Captain Bailey Wright has been deemed fit to start, despite initial concerns about his knee earlier in the week.

Derby County v City kicks off at 7.45pm is live on Sky Sports.

City: Fielding, Wright, Baker, Flint, Magnusson, Brownhill, Smith, Pack, Bryan, Paterson, Reid. Subs: Steele, Kelly, Walsh, Kent, Eliasson, Engvall, Diédhiou.

Derby County: Carson, Wisdom, Keogh, Davies, Forsyth, Lawrence, Huddlestone, Russell, Thorne, Vydra, Nugent. Subs: Mitchell, Pearce, Baird, Winnall, Weimann, Hanson, Jerome.

Referee: Darren England.
