Bristol City vs Birmingham City


Match Preview
No new worries for Bristol City

Bristol City have no new injury problems for the Ashton Gate clash which will determine Birmingham's Sky Bet Championship future.

Tammy Abraham could be making his final Robins appearance with the 26-goal Chelsea loanee unsure where he will be playing next season.

Callum O'Dowda and Bobby Reid could start with boss Lee Johnson suggesting some youngsters will be given an opportunity with the Robins safe from the threat of relegation.

Aaron Wilbraham (knee) and Gary O'Neil (hamstring) remain sidelined.

Relegation-threatened Birmingham will have striker Che Adams available after the red card he received during their 2-0 win over Huddersfield was rescinded.

Adams was shown a red card by referee Mike Jones, but an independent FA Regulatory Commission unanimously upheld Blues' appeal for wrongful dismissal and the 20-year-old will not serve the three-match ban.

Captain Paul Robinson remains banned so defender Michael Morrison, who made his long-awaited return from a groin injury against the Terriers, should retain his place.

Forward Clayton Donaldson remains sidelined with a knee injury as new boss Harry Redknapp aims to keep Birmingham up.
