Anxious Wait For Abraham Scan

Tammy Abraham will undergo a scan over the next 48 hours to determine the extent of the thigh injury sustained at Leeds United last night.

The 21-goal top scorer limped off early in the game at Elland Road - which ended 2-1 in favour of the home team - after feeling his thigh muscle.

Head coach Lee Johnson revealed Abraham thought the injury was "serious", but he is desperately hoping that isn't the case.

"He has done something to his thigh although we don't know to what extent yet," Johnson said.

"Tammy is gutted because he thinks it's something serious. We hope that isn't the case.

"We need to get it scanned over the next day or so to see how bad it is."

He added: "He's played a lot of games for a young kid, but you cannot leave him out when he is nigh-on the top scorer in the league."

Mark Little was withdrawn at half-time after suffering a hamstring problem, which will also be assessed by the medical team.

City are without a game this weekend but return to action a week today (Wednesday, February 22nd) when Fulham visit Ashton Gate (8pm).
