Sky Bet League 1
Bristol City vs Bradford City
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at Ashton Gate
Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has handed Mark Yeates his full debut for City in their opening Sky Bet League 1 fixture of the season at Bristol City's Ashton Gate.
Yeates' inclusion in the side is the only change from the eleven who secured promotion for City in the League 2 Play-Off Final back in May.
The Irish winger has taken the place of Kyel Reid, who is named among City's substitutes.
Recent recruits Connor Ripley and Matt Taylor are also on the bench, although with fellow summer signings Jason Kennedy and Raffaele De Vita.
City will wear their new light blue and white away shirts, coupled with the black shorts and socks from their third kit, for the Ashton Gate fixture.
