Lee Johnson hasn’t ruled Gary O’Neil out of tomorrow’s trip to Preston North End (kick-of 7.45pm).
The City skipper hobbled off in the second half of Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Brentford.
Afterwards Johnson revealed O’Neil reported “hearing something pop behind his knee”.
Johnson told Bristol City Player HD today: “I’ve just seen Gary and he says he feels better, which is a good sign.
“We’ll probably keep him off his feet today and get him to travel up to Preston with us if he’s ok. If not, we’ll get him scanned, but at the moment all signs point towards improvement.”
Johnson has no other fitness concerns in the squad, apart from the usual “bumps and bruises”.
City’s head coach hasn’t ruled out making changes in the wake of a first-half display at Brentford he labelled “very poor”.
“It’s a fine line,” he added. “We put in such a good performance against Huddersfield, we went with the same team and then put in such a poor performance in the first half at Brentford. That’s as poor as I’ve seen us.
“That group of players put in such a fantastic performance against Huddersfield two weeks earlier, so it could be a case of showing them the video nasty and giving them another opportunity to show what they can do.
“There’s the old saying ‘you’re only as good as your last game’. I don’t think anyone could complain if we made changes tomorrow and we’ve got players chomping at the bit to come in.”
Henry Purdy took time out of his training schedule to show his support for Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospital Charity’s COVID-19 Appeal and present two young fundraisers with certificates.
