Players closing in on full fitness

Frank Fielding is set to make his return between the sticks for Bristol City’s Under-23s this evening.

The City shotstopper has been out of action after injuring his hip flexor, followed by viral meningitis.

The keeper recently returned to training and will get minutes under his belt for Luke Williams’ development squad tonight, who face Derby County in the Premier League Cup (November 30th, 7pm KO) at SGS Wise campus.

Elsewhere, Liam Walsh had a knee scan on Friday with Lee Johnson saying he “will have to see” before making a decision on his midfielder. Josh Brownhill is available for selection this Sunday though (v Millwall - December 2nd, 1.30pm), after serving his one-game ban.

Marley Watkins and Callum O’Dowda have both resumed full training, with club captain Bailey Wright, who recently featured for the U23s, is edging closer to full fitness himself.

And Korey Smith continues his rehab on the AlterG treadmill.
