All the latest Bristol City team news ahead of Boro clash tomorrow

Championship leaders Bristol City welcome Middlesbrough to Ashton Gate tomorrow as they look to bounce back from their frustrating draw at Oakwell on Saturday. 

Cauley Woodrow scored an equaliser from the penalty spot in the 12th minute of second-half stoppage time as City dropped points in the league for the first time this season.

The Robins won’t have to wait for their chance to get back to winning ways as Boro travel to Bs3 on Tuesday night.

Dean Holden has opted for continuity when it comes to his team selection this season but with games coming thick and fast over the next few weeks he may be forced to make a few changes.

One man that may be missing is Chris Martin, who has made a phenomenal start to life at Ashton Gate and leads the league in assists but is questionable for the game against Boro.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Holden said: “We’ll see where he (Martin) is at, we’ve still got plenty of time tomorrow evening so we’ll assess the squad tomorrow and we’ll see what we go with.”

The Robins boss also confirmed that neither Liam Walsh nor Joe Williams would be available for the visit of Boro, with both players still recovering from injuries.

Which football team does comedian Roy 'Chubby' Brown support?

Dan Bentley’s involvement remains in question after he missed Saturday’s game against the Tykes.

The goalkeeper is suffering from a neck injury and Holden suggested on the weekend that though he didn’t think it would be a long-term issue, Bentley may miss the midweek game.

Jay Dasilva was also absent from the squad but that was tactical rather than due to an injury and City may look to freshen things up at wing-back by introducing either he or Ryan Sessegnon tomorrow evening.

Famara Diedhiou was an unused substitute on Saturday but Holden has indicated he does see the striker as part of his plans moving forward.
