Predicted Bristol City Lineup To Face Queens Park Rangers In The EFL Championship
After creating some great memories during their Carabao Cup run, the Bristol City players must now focus on keeping their momentum going in the league so that they can make it to the Premier League next season. Their draw against Derby County last Friday ended a run of 5 defeats and kept them in the playoff places. They host Queens Park Rangers this weekend, hoping to inflict a defeat on Ian Holloway’s men, who are often a dangerous team to play.
Bristol City have a fair list of injuries and are still without Frank Fielding, Gary O’Neill, Callum O’Dowda, Jens Hegeler and Eros Pisano. They are likely to make quite a few changes from their midweek cup game.
Probable Bristol XI
GK – Luke Steele
The keeper for Bristol City’s Cup run Luke Steele will keep his place because Frank Fielding will be out for a few weeks with a groin injury.
DR – Bailey Wright
Australian international and team captain Bailey Wright is having a very good season and will want to continue his good form this weekend.
DC – Aden Flint
This strong defender spent his last game attempting to deal with Sergio Aguero. But he will probably have an easier task this weekend.
DC – Nathan Baker
This former Aston Villa star has shrugged off an ankle injury sustained against Derby and could take his place in the centre of the defence.
DL – Hordur Magnusson
This defensive-minded left back is a key part of Lee Johnson’s side and will try and keep the lively QPR wingers quiet.
ML – Ryan Kent
Ryan Kent was signed on loan from Liverpool earlier this month and will make his first start this weekend. He is a quick and athletic player with excellent crossing ability.
MC – Marlon Pack
Marlon Pack will be full of confidence after scoring against Manchester City and will be hoping to drive Bristol City to a victory.
MC – Korey Smith
Korey Smith is the anchor of the Bristol City team and will have the job of breaking up QPR’s play.
MR – Josh Brownhill
Josh Brownhill is a solid midfield player who adds to the Bristol City team both offensively and defensively.
AM – Bobby Reid
A really talented player, Reid should make his 35th appearance of the season. He will surely be motivated to find the back of the net here.
ST – Famara Diedhiou
Although Jamie Paterson has been playing very well, Lee Johnson has been looking to change it up and therefore may well start Famara Diedhiou, who has just returned from his injury.
