Bobby Reid should be fit for Bristol City

Bristol City expect Bobby Reid to be fit as they seek to get back to winning ways against Blackburn at Ashton Gate.

The midfielder suffered a dead leg in the closing stages of Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat at QPR - the Robins' second successive Sky Bet Championship defeat.

Full-back Mark Little will be assessed after his hamstring injury was not risked at Loftus Road.

Loan striker Tammy Abraham has equalled his longest run without a goal this season - two games - but should start after overcoming the illness which has restricted him in recent weeks.

Blackburn expect to have the same squad available having defeated Nottingham Forest 2-1 on Tuesday.

Corry Evans (calf) and Ben Marshall (hip) both featured and, barring any issues on Friday, will be included again.

The contest may come too soon for Gordon Greer and Danny Graham (both groin) even though both are training, while Elliott Ward (ankle) and Adam Henley (hamstring) are long-term absentees.

Veteran defender Wes Brown is still yet to make his Rovers bow and needs more minutes with the development squad before he can be considered.
