TEAM NEWS: Bristol City v Peterborough United
Bristol City boss Derek McInnes dropped Liam Fontaine for the first time this season for today's crunch npower Championship relegation battle against Peterborough United at Ashton Gate.
Having taken the captaincy away from the out-of-form centre-back and handed it to Cole Skuse at Ipswich last Saturday, McInnes relegated his erstwhile skipper to the bench as he reverted to a 4-4-2 system for what amounted to a must-win game.
Having impressed at Portman Road seven days earlier, Paul Anderson replaced Fontaine and was deployed on the left wing as City's manager set out to attack fellow strugglers Posh.
Former Middlesbrough team-mates Matthew Bates and Stephen McManus continued their partnership in central defence, while striker Sam Baldock retained his place alongside Jon Stead in attack.
