Mark Little struggling for Bristol City

Bristol City have several injury concerns for the home game against Barnsley which could secure their Sky Bet Championship status.

Full-back Mark Little may miss out after being forced off with a hamstring problem in the 1-1 draw at Blackburn on Easter Monday.

Strikers Aaron Wilbraham (knee) is also doubtful, while veteran midfielder Gary O'Neil is rated 50/50 after being sidelined for three weeks with a hamstring injury.

Victory will keep the Robins in the second tier for another season as long as Blackburn lose at Wolves.

Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom is expected to choose from an unchanged squad.

Heckingbottom has no new injury or suspension problems, while midfielder Alex Mowatt and striker Adam Armstrong are pushing for recalls.

Winger Adam Hammill (toe) and defender Andy Yiadom (shoulder) are still unavailable, but centre-half Adam Jackson could return to contention.

Defender Aidy White (pelvis) and midfielder Sessi D'Almeida (knee) remain long-term absentees as the Reds bid to finish the season in the top half of the table.
