Abraham Out For 'Two To Three Weeks'

Tammy Abraham has been ruled out for “two to three weeks” after injuring his thigh at Leeds United last week.

The on-loan Chelsea forward – who has scored 21 goals this season – was checked out by the medical staff of his parent club and remains in London at present.

Head coach Lee Johnson confirmed to Bristol City Player HD: “He’s certainly going to be out for two to three weeks.

“It’s a big loss for us given how many goals he’s scored this season and how good he’s been.

“It’s the best case scenario because at one point we thought it could be six to eight weeks.

“Tammy is hoping it’s nearer two than three weeks. Chelsea are looking after him at the moment and we’ll get him back in around a week to ten days to start getting him back on the [training pitches].”

Johnson added: “It gives an opportunity to other players in the squad to show their talents and they will I’m sure.”

Mark Little is also out for around a month with a grade two hamstring tear, giving either Zak Vyner or Adam Matthews an opportunity at right-back for Wednesday night’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Fulham at Ashton Gate (8pm kick-off).
