Bristol City face fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough this weekend and they must again cope without the services of winger Martyn Woolford.

The 27-year-old was out of last weekend’s defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but after recovering from that he has now developed shingles and as such, must have no contact with the rest of the squad for at least a week.

That is a blow for manager Derek McInnes who already has more than his fair share of injury problems with Lewin Nyatanga and Jon Stead not quite ready to make a return to first team action.

Stephen McManus, Greg Cunningham, Cole Skuse and Jody Morris are also all on the way back from injury but none will be ready for the trip to Yorkshire.

Steven Davies has staked his claim for a place in the team by scoring for the reserves in midweek.
