Quartet ruled out of Ipswich trip

City will be without four players on their trip to Ipswich Town this Saturday due to injury and suspension.

Marlon Pack will be suspended for the Sky Bet Championship clash at Portman Road after collecting his fifth booking of the season in the midweek 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Head coach Lee Johnson intimated that Josh Brownhill was likely man to come back in; the duo have been almost sharing the central midfield position alongside Korey Smith in recent weeks.

Elsewhere, Eros Pisano, Milan Djuric and Gary O'Neil remain absent through injury.

Johnson gave BCTV an update on the trio in his pre-match press briefing.

He said: "Milan is back with us now with his new haircut, looking about five years younger! He's still a big player for us so we need to make sure he is fully right before we reintroduce him.

"He's out on the grass now working on his movement and I'd say it'll be two weeks before he'll be able to compete. I'd like to get him some Under-23 football or maybe an in-house game before we put him back with the first team group.

"Eros is a funny one. He's had a series of injections and we've probably been chasing it a little bit to try and get him back. He's not feeling quite right and he's a tough lad, so he would want to get out there. We just have to let that one take its course.

"As for Gary, he's had another setback. He came back into training last week and had to pull out again because he was still feeling pain in the knee. It's back to the drawing board on that one."
