Gladwin Only Injury Concern For City

Ben Gladwin is Bristol City’s only concern ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship match against MK Dons (3pm).

The QPR loan midfielder returned to his parent club to undergo medical treatment after suffering a knee injury in training.

Gladwin was due back in the South West on Monday after being given an injection by QPR’s physiotherapist, but his return was put back until today.

City’s medical team will now assess the former Swindon Town man before deciding whether he is fit to be in Lee Johnson’s matchday 18.

“Ben Gladwin has come back in today and will hopefully train,” Johnson told Bristol City Player HD.

“There was a little bit of a delay at the QPR end but he’s here now and I’m looking forward to meeting him.”

City Under-21 defender Zak Vyner was selected on the bench in Johnson’s first game against Ipswich Town at Ashton Gate last weekend.

Derrick Williams missed out as a result, with City’s head coach explaining the Irishman’s misfortune.

“Derrick Williams was unlucky,” Johnson said.

“It was a little bit circumstantial as we didn’t really have any cover at right-back for Mark Little, who had a bit of a bruised heel.

“We had to make sure if he was struggling that we could bring one in.”

He continued: “Zak’s done very well and has been consistently one of the better players in the Under-21s this year and did well in the first week of training, so it made sense.

“I pick the team like my little girl’s life depends on it and that was the balance we needed on the bench."

Luke Ayling remains on the road to recovery following knee surgery.
