David James will face his former club Portsmouth when Bristol City travel to Fratton Park.
The ex-England goalkeeper spent four years at the south coast club before leaving in the summer to join Championship rivals City.
Ahead of his return, James told the club`s official website: "My time at Portsmouth was unbelievable in just about every department, from the FA Cup win to the financial matters.
"I still hold them close to my heart and it will be nice to go back in some respects, but my focus is on the game and we need a win."
City sustained no new problems in drawing 0-0 at Burnley on Saturday. However, one change to the squad will see the addition of defender Steven Caulker following his arrival on loan from Tottenham.
