City play waiting game on Fielding recovery

Frank Fielding will miss up to three weeks of action with a groin injury.

The City goalkeeper sustained the problem back on his old Pride Park stomping ground on January 19th, forcing his substitution at half-time.

Absent for City’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg tie with Manchester City, the custodian will also be sidelined for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with QPR at Ashton Gate (3pm).

Assistant head coach Dean Holden told BCTV: “Frankie is going to be out for anywhere between ten days and three weeks.

“It’s difficult to put an exact timescale on it because everyone heals differently. If Frankie and I both had the same injury, it doesn’t mean we’d both be fixed in the same amount of time.

“We just have to the medical team do their work with Frankie and hopefully he’ll be back as soon as possible.”

Holden admitted Famara Diédhiou could be ready to start a game now after a brace of substitute appearances since his return from a knee injury.

Meanwhile, Nathan Baker has shrugged off an ankle injury.

Secure your seat for the QPR clash now, with tickets on general sale.
