The Cottagers face Lee Johnson’s side for the second time in four days following a dramatic 2-1 EFL Cup defeat at Craven Cottage.

Scott Parker, Kevin McDonald, Chris Martin and Matt Smith will return to the starting XI while Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon may keep his place in the side after scoring on Wednesday.

Floyd Ayite and Ryan Fredericks remain sidelined with ankle injuries.


City will assess Joe Bryan (muscle) and Hordur Magnusson (toe) ahead of the match.

Midfielder Korey Smith, who has made only one appearance this season, will not be available after a recent injection.

Gustav Engvall made his debut in the cup match and could get another chance, although Johnson has arranged a behind-closed-doors friendly to give the likes of the Swede, Joel Ekstrand and Smith some game time.

On-loan Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is certain to the return to the starting line-up after coming off the bench to score his ninth goal of the season in midweek.
