Magnusson returns to training

Hordur Magnusson has returned to full training and is in contention for City's Tuesday night fixture against Birmingham City (April 10th, 7.45pm kick-off).

The Icelandic international has not played since suffering a knee injury during City's 1-0 victory over Ipswich Town in March.

The knock left him unable to join up with his country's pre-World Cup fixtures against Mexico and Peru.

But the defender could feature at Ashton Gate tomorrow when Garry Monk's Blues travel south to BS3.

Matty Taylor (groin) could also be named in the matchday squad, after he travelled to Millwall on Saturday.

Discussing City's latest injury concerns, assistant head coach Dean Holden told BCTV: "They have been training which has been good.

"There have been a couple of niggles from Saturday, which you are always going to get from a game like it was, so we'll have to assess that situation later on Tuesday.

"The main emphasis is on attacking the opposition box and creating enough chances to give ourselves a chance of winning the game."

MCCOULSKY UPDATE

Last week, young striker McCoulsky - who has spent the 2017/18 season on a successful loan at Newport County - was diagnosed with pericarditis, an inflammation of the fibrous sac surrounding the heart.

It occurs after a viral infection and can lead to a fever, shortage of breath and chest pains. McCoulsky will return to Bristol for checks and recovery.

Holden continued: "We were made aware of it from the medical department and it's sad news for sure.

"He's having further tests and he'll come back to the club. He'll be in a period of rest for the foreseeable future but he's in great hands.

"Newport County reacted professionally and fantastically, to report it as quickly as they did. We have a strong medical background here and he's in the right hands so hopefully he will be okay."
