Wales Under-21 Attacker Still Suffering

Wes Burns is a doubt for tomorrow night’s trip to Preston North End due to an ongoing thigh injury.

The Wales Under-21 attacker – who scored twice for his country in the recent win over Luxembourg – sat out Saturday’s 4-2 defeat at Birmingham City after picking up the injury in training. 

Manager Steve Cotterill said: “It’s a shame for Wes that he picked up the injury on Thursday (before the game). 

“We’ll have to see how it settles down before Tuesday (against Preston). With that thigh injury, it’s not something you want to risk. 

“At the moment it’s a slight strain. We don’t want to risk it becoming a torn groin muscle because then you’re looking at two or three months out.” 

Liam Moore and Nathan Baker both made their debuts at Birmingham, which proved a baptism of fire. 

But Cotterill said:  “I’m sure they will come to the party with us because they’re very good players. 

“They don’t really know how we play at the moment but they want to learn. There’s nothing like a game to get everyone together though. 

“I’m sure they’ll be better for that experience (at Birmingham) and we look forward to working with them over the course of the season.”
