Birmingham City may have jot back in action for the visit to Bristol City, the 27-year-old winger having missed three games with a hip flexor problem.

Defender Harlee Dean has come off the bench and is hoping that he will not go home.

Bristol City could have Bailey Wright available for the trip to the Midlands.

The defender, who has not played since April with a thigh injury, took part in a behind-the-door-lock game this week.

Lee Johnson's Robins start the 14th day in the championship – four points behind-the-corner blues and eight points off the top six.
