All the Bristol City injury news ahead of Millwall clash right here

Bristol City head east tomorrow afternoon as they face Millwall in a crucial game that could affect the play-off chances of both teams.

Lee Johnson will be monitoring the various knocks and niggles that some of his players will have from the Huddersfield game in midweek while others have been out with long-term injuries.

One player that could be back for the Millwall game is central midfielder and captain Korey Smith.

The experienced midfielder limped off against Derby County a couple of weeks ago with a knee injury. Assistant coach Dean Holden confirmed ahead of the trip to The Den that Smith had trained on Thursday morning and could be back in contention come Saturday.

Striker Benik Afobe has been out since September after injuring his anterior cruciate ligament but he is nearing a return to first-team action.

He returned to training at Bristol City this week and manager Johnson is hopeful that he will have the powerful forward back for the season run-in.

Who scored the first goal of the season for the Robins?

Defender Zak Vyner returned from his Aberdeen loan last month but has been struggling with a shoulder injury since.

He has been taking part in non-contact training with Johnson admitting before the West Brom game that the club needs to make a decision on whether the 22-year-old is sent for an operation or not.

Forward Marley Watkins has been out with a calf injury since coming off at half-time in the New Year’s Day game at Wigan Athletic.

The 29-year-old could be back in training next week as he looks to continue his rehabilitation.
