Gary O'Neil should return to boost Bristol City

Young striker Paul Arnold Garita has seen his loan spell at Plymouth cut short by a knee injury.

Brentford boss Dean Smith must decide whether to tinker with a winning side after ending a four-match losing streak with a 2-1 victory over Burton.

Defender Andreas Bjelland and midfielder Josh McEachran both started against the Brewers.

Midfielder Alan McCormack is available having recently completed a five-match suspension.

Defenders Callum Elder (calf) and Rico Henry (shoulder) continue their recoveries along with midfielders Lewis Macleod (knee) and Alan Judge (broken leg).
