O'Dowda ruled out for eight to ten weeks

Callum O’Dowda has undergone a successful ankle operation and will miss eight to ten weeks of action.

The Republic of Ireland international sustained the injury in last Saturday’s 3-2 victory at Hull City and subsequently went under the knife on Thursday.

Head physio Steve Allen told bcfc.co.uk: “Callum underwent arthroscope surgery to the syndesmosis joint in his ankle.

“This was found to be unstable, so the surgeon stabilised it with a tightrope fixation. He will now be out of action for anywhere between eight and ten weeks.”

O’Dowda has been involved in 22 of City’s 23 matches so far this season, scoring against Crystal Palace and Cardiff City, as well as earning his first start for Republic of Ireland.

City are already without Famara Diédhiou (knee), Gary O'Neil (knee), Jens Hegeler (knee) and Eros Pisano (hamstring).
