Semenyo earns first City start

Antoine Semenyo has been called up for Lee Johnson's starting XI to face Leeds United this afternoon.

The young forward steps in for Andreas Weimann to make his third appearance for City, his second of the 2018/19 season after an impressive display off the bench in Preston last weekend.

He is one of four changes to Johnson's side, with Max O'Leary taking the gloves ahead of the injured Niki Mäenpää. Elsewhere, Bailey Wright leads the side, replacing Jack Hunt at right-back, while Jay Dasilva gets the nod over Lloyd Kelly.

New goalkeeper signing Stefan Marinovic is named on the bench.

City v Leeds United is a sell-out this afternoon (March 9th, 3pm KO).

City: O'Leary, Wright, Kalas, Webster, Dasilva, Pack, Brownhill, Paterson, O'Dowda, Semenyo, Diédhiou. Subs: Marinovic, Taylor, Weimann, Kelly, Eliasson, Hunt, Palmer.

Leeds: Casilla, Ayling, Cooper, Bamford, Alioski, Roberts, Jansson, Hernandez, Harrison, Phillips, Klich. Subs: Peacock-Farrell, Douglas, Dallas, Berardi, Brown, Shackleton, Gotts.
