Wright suffers injury on international duty

Bailey Wright is a major doubt for City’s Friday night encounter with Burton Albion after suffering an injury on international duty.

The City skipper was suspended for the first leg of Australia’s World Cup play-off with Syria on Friday, a game the Socceroos drew 1-1.

Wright was hoping for a recall in Sydney for Tuesday’s second leg, but is instead returning to the UK.

The 25-year-old sustained a glute injury in training, which has forced him to withdraw from the squad and fly home early.

Ironically, Wright was already a doubt for the Burton game as his original return flight was just 24 hours before the Sky Bet Championship encounter.

However, injury now looks set to rule Wright out of the fixture instead.

City will be hoping the international break has given Eros Pisano the chance to recover from his knee injury, especially as Wright has been filling in at right-back in the Italian’s absence.
