Two positive results over the past couple of weeks have pushed Lee Johnson’s side back into the Championship play-off places, and things are going well for the side off the field as well as on it.
Having had a squad struggle with injuries across the season so far, it will be welcome news that the Robins are eventually getting back to full fitness ahead of a crucial test with Millwall tonight.
With the busy Christmas period just around the corner, Johnson can breathe a sigh of relief that the squad is nearly fully fit again, but there are still a couple of players who require more time to get back out on the pitch.
Centre-back Tomas Kalas is one of them, who could be fit enough to make the bench tonight as Johnson, his coaching staff and the physiotherapists will be assessing the 25-year-old summer signing today ahead of the meeting with the Lions at Ashton Gate, reports Bristol Live.

Robins assistant head coach Dean Holden is remaining optimistic that loan striker from Stoke City, Benik Afobe, will be able to play again this season after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury in September after a lightning start to the season, scoring three goals in five games.
Left-back Jay Dasilva, who signed in the summer on a permanent deal from Chelsea, is nearing a return after recently rejoining training with the Robins as he steps up his recovery from a stress fracture in his lower leg. The injury was originally thought to have been for five weeks, however, after a scan in August, it transpired to be much worse than first feared.
