Tonight, Bristol City travel to Reading and The Madejski Stadium, with both sides looking to push their respective play-off hopes, as the business end of the season approaches.
Centre-back Tomas Kalas is once again set to sit out of the tie and Lee Johnson has confirmed that the summer signing is out of the clash with Reading because of a hamstring injury.
The record signing has struggled to make it onto the pitch this campaign and have a consistent run of form, having featured in just the 13 games across all competitions as repetitive injuries have held him back and forced the other central defenders to step up.
Kalas hasn’t featured since the 1-1 FA Cup draw against Shrewsbury Town at the start of the month.
