Leeds United travel to Bristol City.

City have a major doubt over first choice Niki Maenpaa, who was due to undergo scans on a calf strain, having already lost second choice Frank Fielding to a fractured hand.

Youngster Max O’Leary is available and City have also recalled Jojo Wollacott from a loan at Gloucester City earlier in the week. Marinovic’s arrival was announced after a successful trial with the club and he is now in contention to start against the Whites.
