O'Dowda's ankle injury concern

Callum O’Dowda could be the latest City player to spend an extended spell on the sidelines after suffering an ankle injury.

The winger limped out of Saturday's 3-2 victory at Hull City in the 55th minute following a challenge with Frazier Campbell.

The Republic of Ireland international later left the KCOM Stadium on crutches, with his ankle in a protective boot.

Head coach Lee Johnson told BCTV: “It doesn’t look very good for Callum.

“I thought it was a bit of a naughty tackle to be honest and we’ll have to see how it settles down.

“We’ve still got Jonathan Leko, Niclas Eliasson and Jamie Paterson who can play out there, but we don’t want to be losing more players to injury.”

Famara Diédhiou, Jens Hegeler, Gary O’Neil and Ivan Lucic are all out long-term with knee injuries, with Italian defender Eros Pisano also sidelined with to a hamstring problem.

BRYAN ABSENCE

Joe Bryan missed the flight to East Yorkshire with a hip injury, but at least that one isn’t thought to be too serious.

“It’s more like a rugby injury,” commented Johnson. “It’s badly bruised from the impact of the challenge on Tuesday (against Preston), but hopefully he should be available against Middlesbrough next Saturday (December 2nd, 5.30pm).
