Bristol City v Barnsley preview

Bristol City have no fresh injury worries as they look to cap a memorable week with three points against Barnsley.
The Robins lifted the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy for the third time on Sunday against Walsall and were back in on Tuesday to prepare for a clash with former fans’ favourite Lee Johnson and his Tykes side.
Boss Steve Cotterill could name an unchanged line-up after the 2-0 Wembley win but he has the likes of Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Wade Elliott itching to be given the nod.
Cotterill’s men currently sit 10 points clear at the top of the League One table.
Barnsley’s new loan signing Joe Wildsmith will go straight into the starting line-up after arriving from Sheffield Wednesday on Thursday.
Wildsmith, on loan until April 25, will make his full debut as Reds goalkeeper Adam Davies has an abdominal injury.
Defender Peter Ramage is back in contention after being sidelined since February due to a thigh problem. He came through a reserve-team run-out in midweek unscathed.
Ben Pearson (illness) and Josh Scowen (hamstring) are closing in on returns, but fellow midfielder John O’Sullivan has returned to parent club Blackburn, so Dale Jennings and Kane Hemmings will come into contention.
