Maynard: Set to start for City

Bristol City are set to be unchanged.

Striker Andy Keogh has returned to parent club Wolves for treatment on a back injury but has not featured for the Championship outfit for almost a month so Nicky Maynard and Brett Pitman are expected to start up front.

Defender Damion Stewart came through the full 90 minutes of the midweek draw with Millwall after an ankle injury and is fit while left-back Jamie McAllister also recovered from cramp to play.

Stalwart Louis Carey - who fractured his skull in February - is back in training and could return before the end of the season.

Boss Keith Millen said: "We could welcome him back for the Easter weekend when we have two games in the space of three days."

Ipswich defender Mark Kennedy is set to miss out.

Kennedy has been plagued by hamstring injuries all season and another twinge means he will not feature at Ashton Gate.

On-loan Celtic man Darren O'Dea is likely to deputise as Paul Jewell's side look for a win which would take them into the top half.

Teenage forward Connor Wickham earned a point in the 3-3 draw with Middlesbrough midweek after he moved from his station on the left into the centre and he could start through the middle.

That would see winger Lee Martin coming into the side and Jason Scotland dropping out.

Jewell has no other injury concerns but will continue to give Arran Lee-Barrett his chance in goal.
