📣 Pearson issues squad update

Nigel Pearson has given a squad update ahead of City’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday (March 19th, 3pm)

Midfielder Alex Scott (pictured above) and Antoine Semenyo will be available for the visit of the Baggies despite coming off in City’s loss to Barnsley on Tuesday night, while Joe Williams will be back in 'two to three weeks'.

Speaking to Robins TV, Pearson said: “Alex always gets something during the game, it's just the way he plays but he's ok. He'll be training with us today.

“Joe will be missing for two or three weeks which is good because it's not as bad as last time. We always know there is a risk with players who have had previous hamstring injuries - that's why he was left out of the starting 11 - but unfortunately he went on and got injured. At least it's not going to be a long term situation for Joe and I'm really pleased for him about that."

Joe Williams will be out of action for two-three weeks

Despite coming off at Oakwell Antoine Semenyo will be available to face the Baggies.

“Antoine is fine, he just had cramp so he'll be available this weekend." said Pearson.

Both Max O'Leary and Ayman Benarous were absent from the trip to South Yorkshire after testing positive for Covid-19.

“They won't be available for this weekend because they are still feeling unwell. Although nationally the rules have changed we have to protect the rest of the squad,” added Pearson.
