Bristol City vs Sunderland - Nathan Baker still banned for Bristol City

Bristol City are again without Nathan Baker for the visit of Sky Bet Championship strugglers Sunderland.

Baker serves the second game of a three-match ban and skipper Bailey Wright is set to move across to central defence, with Korey Smith likely to fill in at right-back.

Matty Taylor (hernia), Eros Pisano (hamstring), Jens Hegeler (knee), Callum O’Dowda (ankle) and Milan Djuric (groin) all remain out.

But City are waiting on goalkeeper Frank Fielding, who has missed the last three games with a thigh problem.

Sunderland boss Chris Coleman will be without goalkeeper Robbin Ruiter after he was ruled out for up to 12 weeks with a badly dislocated finger.

Ruiter was on the bench for last weekend’s 2-0 home defeat by Ipswich as deadline-day signing Lee Camp was handed a debut, and Jason Steele is in line to replace him.

Midfielders Jonny Williams and Paddy McNair could return from injury, with the Wales international having played 90 minutes for the club’s Under-23s on Monday evening.

However, Adam Matthews, Marc Wilson and Lamine Kone are still out along with long-term casualties Darron Gibson and Duncan Watmore.
