Midfielder Neil Kilkenny is a doubt for Bristol City's home clash with in-form Watford as they look to build on their morale-boosting victory on Saturday.

The Australia international limped off against Ipswich after turning an ankle and he is touch-and-go for the clash with Gianfranco Zola's Hornets.

Jon Stead popped up with a 90th-minute winner against his former club on Saturday after Steven Davies drew the strugglers level and the duo are competing to replace the injured Ryan Taylor in the starting line-up.

The former Rotherham man left the pitch after just 16 minutes with a fractured collarbone which will rule him out for at least six weeks.

If the specialists believe that a metal plate will need to be inserted in to his shoulder then the big striker could be ruled out for the rest of the campaign.

Albert Adomah remains on African Nations Cup duty with Ghana while the impressive Louis Carey is set to keep his place alongside Liam Fontaine at the heart of the City defence.

Manager Gianfranco Zola has no new injury or suspension concerns for Watford.

The Italian is expected to chose the same matchday 18 which efficiently disposed of Nottingham Forest.

The Hornets brushed aside Forest 3-0 at the City Ground on Saturday to move within one point of the automatic promotion places in the npower Championship.

Eighteen-goal marksman Matej Vydra, who is believed to be close to turning his loan move from Udinese into a permanent deal, bagged a brace either side of Troy Deeney's effort and the strike partners are again likely to start from the off.

Defender Tommie Hoban remains sidelined with his Achilles injury although he hopes to return to training later this week. Ikechi Anya (hamstring) and Neuton (back) also miss out.

The initial Boxing Day meeting between the two sides at Ashton Gate was postponed just before kick-off due to a waterlogged pitch.
