Abraham A Doubt For QPR Clash

Tammy Abraham could miss tomorrow night’s Sky Bet Championship match at QPR after his recent bout of illness.

Head coach Lee Johnson admitted he “gambled” on playing Abraham in the 2-1 defeat at Cardiff City on Friday.

Abraham, 19, had been suffering from sickness and diarrhoea in the build-up to the televised Severnside derby, and was withdrawn ten minutes from time.

Johnson said at his press conference ahead of the QPR game: “Tammy didn’t train yesterday (Sunday) so we’ll have to see how he is feeling.

“He had been suffering from the end of the England Under-21 game right up until the Friday match and it was touch and go whether we played him. It was a gamble.

“We’ll assess how he is. We have to look at the bigger picture too, as we have a lot of games coming up.”

City’s boss also reported a couple of bumps and bruises in the camp, but kept his cards close to his chest on which players were affected.

Adam Matthews and Korey Smith could be added to the squad after coming through last week’s Under-23 fixture.

Joel Ekstand, meanwhile, has only just returned to training after illness.
