Brendan Moloney handed Bristol City debut against Ipswich Town
Bristol City head coach Sean O'Driscoll handed a debut to new signing Brendan Moloney in today's npower Championship clash with Ipswich Town at Ashton Gate.
Recruited from Nottingham Forest on Friday, the 24-year-old Irishman came in for Richard Foster at right-back.
Foster's fellow Scot, Stephen Pearson, also lost his place in the starting line-up, Paul Anderson moving to the left side of midfield to accommodate the return of striker Sam Baldock.
Now fully recovered from a calf strain, Baldock partnered Ryan Taylor up front in a 4-4-2 formation.
