TEAM NEWS: Millwall v Bristol City
Bristol City boss Derek McInnes proved as good as his word when making two changes to his starting line-up for today's npower Championship clash against Millwall at the New Den.
The Scot promised to utilise his squad during the busy Christmas and New Year period and he recalled centre-back Liam Fontaine and right-back Mark Wilson as City sought to extend their unbeaten run to three games.
Making his first appearance since October 27, former Celtic defender Wilson replaced the injured Richard Foster (hamstring), while Fontaine came in for striker Sam Baldock as McInnes reverted to a more defensive strategy.
Unfortunate to be left out after scoring twice against Peterborough United at the weekend, Baldock was named among the substitutes.

Fit-again centre-half Louis Carey was back on the bench, while right-back Joe Edwards was included in the squad after returning from his loan spell at Yeovil Town.
Stephen Pearson again missed out through injury, while there was no place in the squad for striker Steven Davies.
