Bristol City will be without Adam El-Abd when they host local rivals Swindo

The defender saw red in the 2-1 victory over Peterborough on Tuesday evening and the Robins decided not to appeal the decision and he will now serve an automatic three-match ban, starting with the derby against Mark Cooper's men.

One player who will start is goalkeeper Frank Fielding, who put in a memorable man-of-the-match display, and with Cardiff loanee Simon Moore sidelined with a groin injury the former Derby shot-stopper will be given another chance to impress.

Sam Baldock also looks certain to start having edged his way to the top of the League One goalscoring charts with a double against Posh.

Swindon look set to recall defender Troy Archibald-Henville for the local derby with Bristol City.

The former Exeter centre-back was rested for Tuesday's 4-1 defeat by Wolves but he looks likely to step back into the starting line-up for Raphael Branco.

Left-back Jay McEveley returned to the starting line-up despite his on-going knee problem but he may not be able to face two games in five days. Nathan Byrne's hamstring will be assessed in the build up to kick-off and Wes Foderingham could return to goal after a spell sidelined through injury.

And full-back Nathan Thompson could make a shock return to action. He strained his groin during last weekend's loss and looked set to be sidelined for a month but now looks likely to be available.
