Johnson Makes Eight Changes at Fulham

Lee Johnson makes eight changes to his starting line-up for City's second visit to Fulham in four days (kick-off 3pm).

After Wednesday's 2-1 success over the Whites in the EFL Cup third round, only Aden Flint, Marlon Pack and Luke Freeman retain their place in the team.

Frank Fielding returns in goal, while Joe Bryan and Hordur Magnusson are both passed fit to start in defence.

Lee Tomlin, who scored the winner in the last league meeting between the two sides, is restored to the starting line-up and is expected to figure behind striker Tammy Abraham, who was the midweek match winner.

Fulham make ten changes, with only Michael Madl surviving from midweek.

Bristol City: Fielding, Little, Flint, Magnusson, Bryan, Reid, Pack, Paterson, Tomlin, Freeman, Abraham. Subs: O'Donnell, Moore, Golbourne, Brownhill, O'Dowda, Engvall, Wilbraham.

Fulham: Button, Odoi, Madl, Sigurdsson, Sessegnon, Parker, McDonald, Cairney, Aluko, Kebano, Martin. Subs: Bettinelli, Malone, Ream, Johansen, Jozabed, Piazon, Smith.

Referee: Mr P Bankes.
