Crystal Palace will check on Dean Moxey ahead of the visit of City.
Defender Moxey missed Saturday's 2-0 win at Watford with flu and needs a late fitness test.
Nathaniel Clyne made his first appearance of the season against the Hornets following a foot injury in Moxey's left-back spot, and he will revert to his preferred right-back role if Moxey is fit.
Boss Dougie Freedman has no new injury concerns following the weekend, and striker Jermaine Easter pushed his claims for a start after scoring a superb goal moments after coming on as a substitute.
Midfielder Owen Garvan could be added to the squad after a knee injury but full-back Lee Hills remains a long-term absentee with his knee problem.
Bristol City are hoping defenders Ryan McGivern and James Wilson will be available to face Palace, after missing the weekend defeat to Peterborough.
McGivern is on course for a comeback after a brief hamstring problem, while Wilson was absent on Saturday due to illness but may well recover in time for the trip to Selhurst Park.
However, veteran centre-back Louis Carey will not play any part in the clash as he continues his recuperation from a knee injury, and defenders Liam Fontaine and Jamie McAllister remain sidelined by long-term ankle problems.
Fontaine is close to a return to full fitness, and will feature in City's reserve-team fixture on Wednesday, but McAllister is set to stay in the treatment room for two more weeks.
Steve Wigley will retain caretaker charge of the side, with the Robins board expected to name a new full-time boss later this week.
