Brett the Pitman start ruled out
Bristol City will continue to be without striker Brett Pitman for their npower Championship clash with Barnsley on Saturday.
Pitman serves the final game of his three-match ban incurred following his sending-off against Coventry on Easter Monday and is therefore unavailable to manager Derek McInnes. Otherwise, the Robins boss has no new injury concerns ahead of the fixture - and McInnes has been boosted by the return to training of defenders Lewin Nyatanga and James Wilson this week following ankle problems. Midfielder Marvin Elliott (Achilles) and striker David Clarkson (ankle) remain sidelined for the remainder of the campaign. City will guarantee survival with a victory at Ashton Gate, although they could lose and still secure safety depending on results elsewhere.
