All the Bristol City injury news ahead of Huddersfield clash this week

Bristol City make the long journey to Huddersfield Town tonight as they try to get all three points in what will be a tough environment.

The Robins are trying to keep their push for the play-off spots on track and they have been able to do so despite the recent injuries and illness suffered by the squad.

Lee Johnson still has a couple of injury problems heading into the Huddersfield game but not much that will concern him.

Central midfielder and captain Korey Smith could be back shortly after overcoming a knee injury.

He limped off during the midweek win against Derby County a couple of weeks ago and the decision has now been made to not drain the 29-year-old midfielder’s knee of fluid.

Is former City striker Leroy Lita still playing?

The decision will likely see him back on the pitch sooner and he will bolster the options Johnson has in the middle of the park.

Forward Marley Watkins has been out since the New Year’s Day game against Wigan Athletic because of a calf injury.

First-team coach Dean Holden revealed a couple of weeks back that Watkins was still a few weeks away from returning but if all has gone to plan, then he could be back on the training pitch this week.

Striker Benik Afobe returned to the club yesterday as he looks to step up his rehabilitation from an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

A return date in April looks the likeliest time that Afobe will be back in action on matchday.

Famara Diedhiou, Andreas Weimann and Adam Nagy were all suffering through an illness bug last week but the trio have all recovered after taking part in the game against West Brom at the weekend.
