Pisano ruled out of Wolves trip

Eros Pisano is set for a short spell on the sidelines after injuring his knee ahead of Saturday’s 1-0 win at Reading.

The Italian defender slipped in monsoon conditions at the club’s Failand training ground on Friday, meaning he was absent from the squad for the victory at the Madejski Stadium.

Head coach Lee Johnson has already confirmed scans showed up no lasting damage to Pisano’s knee.

However, assistant head coach Jamie McAllister, speaking at the pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow night’s trip to Wolves, confirmed Pisano will again be absent when City head to Molineux.

“It was a really unfortunate one for Eros,” McAllister told BCTV. “It looks like it will be around ten days that he’s out. He’s been great for us since he came in so we hope to have him back soon.”

McAllister admits City are likely to make changes against in-form Wolves given the hectic schedule, as well as for tactical reasons.

Gary O’Neil (knee) and Milan Djuric (groin) remain sidelined.
