Bristol City take on West Bromwich Albion at Ashton Gate tomorrow and the Robins will be looking for an important three points that could get them back into the top six.

The squad has been hit with injury and illness across the past few weeks with Lee Johnson and his medical staff monitoring the players closely over the last few days.

Central midfielder Korey Smith is looking like he could be a doubt after limping off against Derby County nine days ago with a knee injury and subsequently missing the Leeds game a few days later.

Johnson mentioned in his pre-match press conference on Wednesday that the medical staff had a decision whether to drain the fluid on the skipper’s knee or to leave him alone completely. The latter option is likely to give him the best chance of being available tomorrow.

Andreas Weimann has been struggling with illness over the last week after being rushed off 34 minutes into the Leeds game and he is still struggling ahead of the West Brom clash.

Famara Diedhiou has also been ill lately but is feeling better ahead of tomorrow’s clash and is in contention for a start.
