Moore the merrier for Robins

Bristol City boss Steve Cotterill is expected to include new signing Simon Moore in his squad for the clash with Carlisle.

Cardiff goalkeeper Moore, who joined the Robins on loan until the end of the season on Thursday, is available to make his debut against the Cumbrians should the manager wish to rest Elliot Parish.

Fellow newcomer Wade Elliott made his debut from the bench in the 3-1 defeat to Brentford in midweek and is expected to be involved once again.

Karleigh Osborne (hamstring) will miss out, while Scott Wagstaff (hamstring) remains doubtful.

Carlisle boss Graham Kavanagh must decide whether hand Dean Bouzanis his debut for the club or stick with Greg Fleming in goal.

Former Liverpool keeper Bouzanis signed until the end of the season in time for the midweek win against MK Dons, but was an unused substitute as Kavanagh opted to retain Fleming.

Republic of Ireland Under-19 international Michael Drennan is another new recruit hoping to make his first start. The Aston Villa striker stepped off the bench on Tuesday night after arriving on loan for a month.

Defenders Conor Townsend (foot) and Chris Chantler (ankle), plus midfielder Paul Thirlwell (calf) remain sidelined.
