Curtis Fleming and Danny Rohl have named their starting line-ups for Saturday afternoons Sky Bet Championship clash between Bristol City and Sheffield Wednesday.

Following Nigel Pearson’s departure on Sunday, Fleming will fill in for the 60-year-old and has made four changes for his first match in charge.

The Robins have had to cope with an array of senior injuries over the last few weeks, but they are boosted by the return of three key men to the matchday squad.

Fleming said in his pre-match press conference that Kal Naismith, Zak Vyner and George Tanner would be in contention to face the Owls, and two of the trio will start the match.

City have lost five of their last seven matches, but a win against bottom of the league Wednesday this afternoon could propel them up five places into 10th.

The Owls, though, will be motivated given their first win of the campaign against Rotherham United last time out.

Here’s how the teams line-up...

Bristol City XI: Max O’Leary, George Tanner, Zak Vyner, Rob Dickie, Cam Pring, Matty James, Jason Knight, Taylor Gardner-Hickman, Mark Sykes, Tommy Conway, Andi Weimann.
