Suspended pair miss out on City clash

Wednesday will be without the suspended Sam Hutchinson and Steven Fletcher for Tuesday night’s trip to struggling Bristol City.

The pair miss out after being red carded in our last outing, the defeat at Brighton, as we look to get back to winning ways after a 10-day break from action.

David Jones looks the most likely replacement for Hutchinson, in a holding midfield role, while Almen Abdi could also be considered if he is fit after injury.

Fletcher was dismissed at Brighton after coming on as a second-half substitute for Sam Winnall and the latter could start again, with Gary Hooper also a possible starter.

Hooper returned to action after a lengthy lay-off  in a runout for the academy side earlier this month. He was on the bench at Brighton but is still carrying a knock he took in the academy game, so Carlos Carvalhal will need to decide on whether the striker travels to Bristol.

Jack Hunt is fit for selection after being stretchered off at Brighton with a knee injury.
