Johnson eyes Nagy return

Ádám Nagy is progressing well and could be fit to return to City action immediately after the international break.

The midfielder suffered an ankle injury in the Robins’ 2-0 victory over QPR and was forced off at half-time.

But his recovery has gone well and he may even be fit enough for Hungary’s international fixtures over the next couple of weeks, before City take on Stoke City.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of the Sky Bet Championship fixture against Middlesbrough this Saturday, Head Coach Lee Johnson said: “Ádám's looking pretty good, I'm pleased with that one. He's moving a lot better now, he's not so ginger in the way he walks and to touch the ankle's not so bad.

"He's been called up by the Hungary national side as well and he's keen to play in that.

"We'll have a look at him tomorrow on the grass it may well be a little bit too soon this Saturday, but the plan is in Hungary's qualifiers to have him ready for that second game and then back for our game against Stoke."

However, Tomas Kalas is facing between four and six weeks on the sidelines after suffering from a grade-two hamstring tear.

Meanwhile, Korey Smith (foot) and Jay Dasilva (tibia) continue their respective treatment, while Niki Mäenpää followed up his return to the City squad after injury with 90 minutes for the Under-23s this week.
