Bristol City v Barnsley
Bristol City's Danny Coles looks set to keep his place in the team for the home clash with Barnsley.
The defender was recalled to the side two games ago at Swindon because Mickey Bell had a virus.

The winger was forced off with an ankle injury just after half-time in the 1-0 win over Kidderminster.
Dene Cropper and midfielder Chris Ward (both ankle) are still some way short of full fitness, and City still lack goalkeeping cover with Darren Horrigan (knee) ruled out for the rest of the season.
New signing Andy Rammell will go straight into the Bristol Rovers side.
The combative striker completed a deadline-day transfer from Wycombe and will be thrust into the goal-shy attack alongside either Paul Tait, Guiliano Grazioli or on-loan Norwich striker Chris Llewellyn.

Ben Abbey, the third striker to arrive at Moss Rose on transfer deadline day, may also feature following his move from Woking.

Kidderminster have two injury doubts. Lee Ayres and Dion Scott picked up knocks at Lincoln, Scott needing extensive treatment on a shoulder injury before Ayres was stretchered off with a gashed ankle.

The new man at the helm will have to make do without Jay Smith, whose recent pelvic injury is looking increasingly like a long-term problem
Cambridge United v Scunthorpe United
Cambridge manager John Taylor is keeping his cards close to his chest as his side prepare to entertain Scunthorpe.
Despite the Us taking seven points from their last three games, Taylor has promised to make "one or two changes" to the side that beat Bournemouth 2-1 last week as he looks to make a final push towards the play-offs.
Warren Goodhind, who gave everyone at the Abbey Stadium a transfer deadline day boost by penning a one-year extension to his contract, faces a late fitness test after straining his knee in last weekend's win over Carlisle.
Greg Strong will make his Scunthorpe debut at the Abbey Stadium.
Strong has joined the Iron on loan from Hull City as cover for Mark Jackson, who has been ruled out by a groin injury.
