Fielding Praises City Medical Staff

Frank Fielding has heaped praise on Bristol City’s medical staff after completing 120 minutes in last night’s EFL Cup second round victory over Scunthorpe United. 

 

 

The goalkeeper’s last appearance for the first team came in the FA Cup third round tie against West Brom in January, where he was forced to be withdrawn at half-time due to injury. 

Fielding suffered a further setback when he damaged ankle ligaments in a development match in April, but his return to full fitness came well ahead of schedule. 

“I love them!” he told Bristol City Player HD of the physio team. 

“Gill (Holt) spent the whole summer with me, Wiggy (Steve Allen) has looked after me from the minute I did it. The surgeon who operated on me, Al (McFerran), Ben (Parker)… all the medical team have been first class. I don’t want to leave anyone out. 

"There’s been some really bad, down days but I hope that’s in the past and I can look forward to pushing Rich (O’Donnell) and getting back into the team.” 

He added: “I’ve been itching to play for a while now so I’m delighted we got the win and I got 120 minutes under my belt. I loved every minute of it. 

“I haven’t played for so long so I just really enjoyed it. 

“We completely dominated the first half and I thought the lads were tremendous. 

“All in all it was a good night and it was nice to get the shirt back on.” 

Fielding could now be involved in Lee Johnson’s squad for this weekend’s match against Aston Villa at Ashton Gate. 

Ticket sales have already passed the 20,000 mark and remain available online or by phone on 0117 963 0600.
