TEAM NEWS: Lewin Nyatanga back in Bristol City team to face Nottingham Forest
Lewin Nyatanga was handed his first Bristol City start in three and a half months as head coach Sean O'Driscoll made two changes for today's npower Championship clash with Nottingham Forest at Ashton Gate.
Now fully recovered from injury, the Welsh international centre-back was preferred to James Wilson after Louis Carey failed a fitness test on his damaged knee.
It was Nyatanga's first appearance since he featured in a 2-1 home defeat against Hull City on October 27 and he formed an all left-footed central defensive partnership with Liam Fontaine.
The other change was enforced, O'Driscoll calling up Jon Stead to replace the injured Sam Baldock in attack.
