Bristol City v Ipswich: Blues manager Mick McCarthy has made one change to the side that drew 1-1 at home to Barnsley, last weekend, for today’s game at rock-bottom Bristol City.

Today’s referee is Stephen Martin for Sean O’Driscoll’s first home game in charge of the Robins.

Bristol City (4-4-2): Heaton, Moloney, Carey, Fontaine, Cunningham, Kelly, Skuse, Kilkenny, Anderson, Baldock, Taylor. Subs: Gerken, Foster, J Wilson, Pearson, Elliott, Davies, Stead.

Blues (4-4-2): Loach, Orr, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell, Edwards, Hyam, N’Daw, Martin, McGoldrick, Murphy. Subs: Lee-Barrett, Kisnorbo, Hewitt, Drury, Mclean, Chopra, Nouble.
