Tomas Kalas could return when Bristol City host Derby

Bristol City could be boosted by the return of Tomas Kalas against Derby at Ashton Gate.

Kalas has not played since January 4 after damaging his hamstring but the Czech Republic defender is back in training and “raring to go”, according to Robins assistant boss Dean Holden.

City are seeking to bounce back from Friday’s 3-1 home defeat to Birmingham which dropped them out of the Sky Bet Championship play-off places, and striker Nahki Wells is pushing for a first start following his move from Burnley last month.

Hungary midfielder Adam Nagy is also in contention to start after recent fitness issues but Wales international Marley Watkins remains out with a calf problem.

Derby are among the form teams in the division, with five wins from seven games coinciding with the arrival of former England captain Wayne Rooney.

Defender Max Lowe is available again following his three-match suspension for the red card he received at Luton.

Former England midfielder Tom Huddlestone looks set to miss a sixth successive game with a calf problem.

Rams boss Phillip Cocu is expected to name the same side that won 3-2 at Swansea on Saturday, Derby’s first away win in the league since the opening day in August.
