Albert Adomah in line for Bristol City start at Championship high-fliers Crystal Palace
Head coach Sean O'Driscoll is expected to hand star player Albert Adomah his first Bristol City start since New Year's Day against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Tuesday night.
City's 25-year-old winger missed seven games while on African Cup of Nations duty with Ghana in South Africa and was named as a substitute upon his return at Cardiff City on Saturday.
But the Londoner reacclimatised to the Championship after coming off the bench in the second half at the Cardiff City Stadium and is set start at Selhurst Park.
O'Driscoll confirmed: "Albert is probably the one we will look at getting into the team, because he is a little bit different to what we've got.
"He carries the ball really well and that can be useful away from home.
"If we can find a role for him which he is comfortable with, then he is probably the one to come in.
"He has had a week's training with us and is closest to getting back in the starting line-up."
Left-back Greg Cunningham remains a doubt after straining a hamstring and missed training on Monday.
O'Driscoll said: "There is a doubt about Greg, because he had a slight hamstring problem and we did not want to risk him (at Cardiff).
"We did not want him to play two games in three days and then be out for a long time, because we don't have a lot of cover at left-back.
I felt leaving him out was the right thing to do and he is a lot better today. He is a doubt at the moment, but we will have another look at him in the morning."
But the trip to Palace comes too soon for either midfielder Cole Skuse or striker Sam Baldock.
"Cole Skuse has been running all weekend and we are aiming to get him back into training at the back end of the week," revealed O'Driscoll.
He added: "Sam is struggling with his calf again and we are hoping it might go as quickly as it came. He can do a lot of things, but running is a problem, which is a problem when you are a footballer."
Asked if he would consider rotating his squad, the head coach replied: "I would if I could. But at the minute, I think it is the wrong thing to do. We're trying to get people settled in a way of playing."
