Matthews Out Of Ipswich Trip

Adam Matthews has lost his race against time to be fit for City’s trip to Ipswich Town tonight (7.45pm).

The defender suffered a leg injury in the Boxing Day defeat at Wolves, meaning Mark Little returns to the starting line-up at Portman Road.

Elsewhere, Aaron Wilbraham partners Tammy Abraham up front with Bobby Reid dropping to the bench, while Scott Golbourne replaces Joe Bryan at left-back.

Ipswich Town: Bialkowski, Chambers, Webster, Berra, Kenlock, Ward, Skuse, Bru, Lawrence, McGoldrick, Pitman. Subs: Gerken, Emmanuel, Knudsen, Dozzell, Sears, Varney, Best.

Bristol City: Fielding, Little, Flint, Magnusson, Golbourne, Freeman, Brownhill, Pack, Tomlin, Wilbraham, Abraham. Subs: O’Donnell, Moore, Bryan, Reid, O’Dowda, Paterson, Engvall.

Referee: Mr D Coote.
