Leko handed first City start

Jonathan Leko has been handed his maiden start for City at Wolves (7.45pm).

The attacker, who has joined the club on a season-long loan from West Brom, comes into the team at Molineux as one of two changes made by head coach Lee Johnson, with skipper Bailey Wright also recalled.

Zak Vyner and Jamie Paterson are the two players to drop out of the starting XI following Saturday's 1-0 win at Reading.

City haven't won at Molineux since 1931, but will be aiming to break that long-running, unwanted record this evening.

Wolves: Ruddy, Batth, Coady, Miranda, Doherty, N'Diaye, Neves, Vinagre, Cavaleiro, Bonatini, Jota Subs: Norris, Marshall, Zyro, Price, Enobakhare, Saiss, Deslandes.

Bristol City: Fielding, Wright, Flint, Baker, Leko, O'Dowda, K.Smith, Brownhill, Bryan, Reid, Diedhiou. Subs: Steeele, Magnusson, Pack, Eliasson, Paterson, Taylor, Woodrow.

Referee: Mr S Martin.
