No new worries for Robins

Bristol City boss Derek McInnes has no new injury problems ahead of the visit of Peterborough.

McInnes had recalled Sam Baldock to his side for the clash with Watford on Boxing Day but the game was postponed at the last minute due to a waterlogged pitch.

Baldock was set to replace Paul Anderson in the starting line-up and the striker will now hope to get his chance against Posh.

Louis Carey had been named on the bench for the game on his return from a hamstring injury and is pushing for a start, but Ryan Taylor (thigh) and Danny Wilson (hamstring) remain doubts.

Cole Skuse, who was set to continue in midfield after recovering from a fractured cheekbone, wants to see his side pick up a vital three points.

He told the club's official website: "With Peterborough also in the relegation zone the game has added significance. We have got to start picking up points at home."

Darren Ferguson's men are expected to be unchanged for the fifth match in a row when they travel to Ashton Gate.

Posh climbed off the bottom of the npower Championship table on Boxing Day, where they were replaced by the Robins, with a 3-0 victory over Wolves.

Ferguson named the same starting XI at Molineux that had beaten Bolton and league leaders Cardiff in the previous two games and he is expected to do so again following another impressive win.

Danny Swanson, Kane Ferdinand and Grant McCann came off the bench late on against Wolves and are likely to be among the substitutes once more along with the likes of Craig Alcock, Shaun Brisley and Daniel Kearns.
