O'Dowda to undergo surgery

Callum O’Dowda will undergo surgery tomorrow (Thursday) on his ankle.

The Irish international sustained the injury in Saturday’s 3-2 victory at Hull City, limping out of the game early in the second half.

City head physio Steve Allen told bcfc.co.uk: “Callum will undergo a diagnostic arthroscope operation to ascertain any damage sustained in the challenge and stabilise the ankle joint.

“Once the surgery has taken place, we should have a clearer indication as to how long we will be without Callum for.”

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.
