Abraham Returns To Training

Tammy Abraham has returned to training after three weeks out with a thigh problem.

The on-loan Chelsea striker went back to his parent club for treatment on the injury, picked up in City’s 2-1 defeat at Leeds United on February 14th.

City’s top scorer is now in contention to reclaim his place in the team at Wigan Athletic on Saturday (3pm).

“He’s back in today," head coach Lee Johnson told Bristol City Player HD. "Obviously he’s been out for just under a month, so we will have to see how he is, but he’s like a jack in the box at the moment and he’s chomping at the bit to get back out there.

“As a young player, he probably could’ve done with the rest mentally. We’re looking forward to having him back in the building – it’s a massive boost for us.

“His enthusiasm is infectious and, on the pitch, his goalscoring has been great for us.

“He’s the third top scorer in the league, he’s a threat and he’s dangerous. There are times when it would’ve been ideal to rest him, but we’ve had to rely on him.

“I think we’ve got goals in us anyway, but with Tammy back those goals only increase.

“He’s had time to go away and think about things, and I know he’ll be frustrated because he wants to help the team.

“If we can get him back in the squad on Saturday, it will be great for us.”
