McManus wings in for Robins
Stephen McManus is set to make his second Bristol City debut when they head to managerless Bolton.
The 30-year-old defender joined the club on a three-month loan deal on Wednesday from Middlesbrough.
McManus, who enjoyed a previous loan spell at Ashton Gate towards the end of last season, has only made one appearance for Boro this term.
Fellow defender Joe Byran is expected to return after missing the Robins' last two games with concussion.
The duo's return will be a huge boost for manager Derek McInnes who has been desperately short at the back in recent weeks.
Midfielder Marvin Elliott faces a late check on a groin problem but could be named as a substitute.
Left-back Greg Cunningham is still a couple of weeks away as he continues to recover from an ankle problem.
