Fuller: Restored to the starting XI

Fuller: Restored to the starting XI

Fuller looks certain to rejoin James Beattie in attack while Lawrence is expected to oust Richard Cresswell from the right of midfield.

Long-throw specialist Rory Delap is likely to retain his place in midfield, meaning either Glenn Whelan or Matthew Etherington will be demoted to the bench, to accommodate Fuller's return to the team in a tactical switch.

City (from): Sorensen, Wilkinson, Shawcross, Abdoulaye Faye, Higginbotham, Lawrence, Whitehead, Delap, Whelan, Etherington, Beattie, Fuller, Simonsen, Cresswell, Pugh, Griffin, Cort, Kitson, Dickinson, Amdy Faye.
