PA Sport Report

FormerRochdale midfielder Kennedy and ex-Watford winger Yeates are expected to start, but another new recruit, ex-Swindon winger Raffaele De Vita, is struggling with a thigh strain after signing this week.

City's fourth summer signing, former Charlton defender Matt Taylor, is expected to be included in the squad after arriving at the club on Thursday.

Defenders Andrew Davies (calf) and James Meredith (hip) are likely to start, but centre-half Luke Oliver is not ready to return following a long-term Achilles injury.

Veteran striker Andy Gray is also out of contention due to a broken arm.
