Johnson Hopeful On Fielding Recovery

Lee Johnson is hopeful he will have Frank Fielding fit and available when City travel to Birmingham City on Saturday, November 19th (3pm).

The goalkeeper missed the 2-0 home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion at the weekend due to an injury picked up in the closing stages of the recent draw at Barnsley.

Fielding had started City’s previous eight league matches.

“It’s a grade one tear of the top of the thigh/hip flexor,” Johnson told Bristol City Player HD. “Hopefully he’ll be fit for the next game.”

Birmingham are currently one point better off than City in the Sky Bet Championship table, with both sides hovering just outside the play-off places.
