Magnusson doubt for Cardiff clash

Lee Johnson remains hopeful Hordur Magnusson will be available for selection in Sunday's Severnside derby.

The Icelandic international is a doubt for the trip to the Cardiff City Stadium, after picking up a minor knock to his hamstring in Wednesday night's 1-1 draw at home to Fulham.

Defender Magnusson is one of at least two new injury concerns for the City head coach ahead of the trip to South Wales.

Johnson told BCTV: "We do have a couple but I don’t want to alert the world at this stage but it’s clear we had a couple of knocks [on Wednesday].

"Magnusson was the obvious one. He had to come off with a slight hamstring injury. He felt it cramp so with a bit of luck he will be alright but if not, we have suitable replacements."

THE CITY INJURY LIST

  • Milan Djuric (groin) - has resumed training.
  • Callum O'Dowda (ankle) - Rehab continues, less than a month from full training.
  • Jens Hegeler (knee) - Rehab continues, less than a month from full training.
  • Gary O'Neil (knee) - Building his fitness with under 23s.
  • Eros Pisano (hamstring) - has resumed full training.
  • Matty Taylor (hernia) - one week from training.

City head into Sunday's Severnside derby off the back off three consecutive draws, the latest being an impressive display against an in-form Fulham side.

The Robins will be hoping to emulate their 2-1 home win from November, when Callum O'Dowda and Aden Flint were on target to defeat the Bluebirds.

Kick-off for Sunday's Sky Bet Championship clash between Neil Warnock's Cardiff City and Johnson's Robins is 12pm.

City have sold all of their ticket allocation.
