Smith And Fielding Add To Injury Woes

City’s recent injury curse struck again as Korey Smith and Frank Fielding failed to reach the second half of the goalless draw with Fleetwood Town in the Emirates FA Cup third round.

Smith left the field early due to a hamstring complaint, while Fielding never returned after the half-time interval – replaced by Richard O’Donnell – after suffering a recurrence of his previous groin injury.

Head coach Lee Johnson was already without Hordur Magnusson (hamstring) and Gary O’Neil (calf), before Callum O’Dowda (hip) and Adam Matthews (hamstring) added to his woes.

He told Bristol City Player HD: “Korey’s is a new injury. He felt his hamstring and we had to take him off, so we’ll need to get that scanned to assess the extent of the damage.

“Frankie just felt his previous injury so we took him off as a precaution. Hopefully it isn’t too bad.

“Callum was unavailable after taking a whack on the side against Reading. It should just be bone bruising. 

“As for Adam, he’s hurt the bottom of his hamstring down into the top of his calf. It’s a difficult one to diagnose and he could be out for anything between one week and six weeks.”
