NO HAYNES FOR PALACE CLASH

NO HAYNES FOR PALACE CLASH

Bristol City boss Gary Johnson will have to watch his side take on Crystal Palace at Ashton Gate without the services of Danny Haynes.

The ex-Ipswich man was sent off in the game against Brentford in midweek and he now sits this one out because of a one game ban.

But City will not be short of attacking options, one solution is to play David Clarkson alongside Nicky Maynard.

Clarkson is one of the players who has returned unscathed from international duty along with Jamie McAllister, Paul Hartley and Lewin Nyatanga.

All four should return to the starting line-up to face the Eagles as City look to build on the point they picked up at Preston on the opening day.

As far as Crystal Palace are concerned, Freddie Sears and Nick Carle return to the squad.

On-loan West Ham striker Sears missed the midweek Carling Cup win over Torquay as he was on international duty with the England Under-21 side, while midfielder Carle played in Australia's win over the Republic of Ireland.

There will be no place for new signing Stern John, he picked up an elbow injury in the first game of the season.

Midfielder Darren Ambrose is playing through the pain of a shoulder injury and should figure again after his two goals on Tuesday night.

I'd imagine Gavin Williams will be the one to step in for Haynes providing GJ wants to keep the same shape as the side that played Preston last week. Expect Clarkson to join Maynard up top with Williams tucked in behind...
