Burnley boss Brian Laws could recall Brian Jensen and Ross Wallace to the starting line-up for the home clash.

The Clarets produced a superb performance to bundle Bolton out of the Carling Cup in a 1-0 victory on Tuesday.

Goalkeeper Lee Grant deputised for Jensen but the Clarets' first-choice stopper seems certain to return between the posts.

Laws decided not to risk Wallace against Bolton after the former Preston man sustained a hamstring injury during last Saturday's goalless draw at Crystal Palace.

Wallace may now return to the side, although midfielder Chris McCann remains sidelined with a long-term knee injury.

Laws heaped lavish praise on his men following the Bolton win but stressed: "The league is more important to us than the Carling Cup."

Bristol City have been boosted by the news Marvin Elliott and Christian Ribeiro will be fit to face the Clarets.

Elliott was taken off in the 67th minute of last weekend's 2-1 home defeat to Coventry before Wales international right-back Ribeiro was hauled off late on in the game.

However, manager Keith Millen has confirmed the pair have recovered from their injuries and will be fit to start at Turf Moor.

"Marv had a few niggles and needed a few days' rest but he will be okay," said Millen. "Ribs had a calf problem at the end of the last game but he has trained since the middle of the week and will be fine."

Millen has no new injury or suspension problems but long-term absentees Nicky Maynard and Sam Vokes (hamstring) are still out.
