Two changes for visit of Stoke City

Callum O'Dowda and Lloyd Kelly have been restored to City's starting XI to face the Potters this afternoon.

Winger O'Dowda makes his first start since feeling unwell on international duty with Republic of Ireland.

Meanwhile Kelly returns to the left-back role, after being rested on the bench in midweek.

The rest of Lee Johnson's side remains the same from the side which kicked-off Wednesday night's win against Hull City, with the match winner Famara Diédhiou leading the line.

Goalkeeper Max O'Leary looks to make it a hat-trick of clean sheets with his third consecutive start between the sticks.

Bristol City v Stoke City at Ashton Gate kicks-off at 3pm.

City: O'Leary, Hunt, Webster, Kalas, Kelly, Pack (C), Brownhill, Eliasson, Paterson, O'Dowda, Diédhiou. Subs: Wollacott, Hegeler, Dasilva, Walsh, Watkins, Taylor, Weimann.

Stoke City: Butland, Pieters, Williams, Edwards, Indi, Allen, Ince, Woods (C), Fletcher, Berahino, Afobe. Subs: Federici, Bauer, McClean, Adam, Shawcross, Bojan, Crouch.
