DEFENSIVE BOOST FOR ROBINS
Bristol City will continue to be without striker Brett Pitman for their Championship clash with Barnsley on Saturday.
Pitman serves the final game of his three-match ban incurred following his sending-off against Coventry on Easter Monday and is therefore unavailable to manager Derek McInnes.
Otherwise, the Robins boss has no new injury concerns ahead of the fixture - and McInnes has been boosted by the return to training of defenders Lewin Nyatanga and James Wilson this week following ankle problems.
Midfielder Marvin Elliott (Achilles) and striker David Clarkson (ankle) remain sidelined for the remainder of the campaign.
City will guarantee survival with a victory at Ashton Gate, although they could lose and still secure safety depending on results elsewhere.
Barnsley manager Keith Hill will, meanwhile, be able to choose from an unchanged squad.
Hill has no new injury or suspension problems, but could be tempted to make several changes for the final two games of the season.
Midfielder Stephen Dawson and striker Kallum Higginbotham, on loan from Huddersfield, could return to the starting line-up.
Hill must decide whether to retain David Cotterill on the wing in place of teenager Reuben Noble-Lazarus, while winger Matty Done (hamstring), plus defenders Scott Golbourne (groin) and Rob Edwards (dead-leg) remain sidelined.
Skipper Jacob Butterfield (knee) and goalkeeper Luke Steele (abdomen) have been long-term absentees but are hoping to return to fitness during the close season.
The Tykes have won only one of their last 13 league games, losing eight of their previous 10, but results elsewhere on Tuesday night ensured their Championship survival despite a 3-1 defeat at Hull.
