Bristol City have taken young goalkeeper Harvey Wiles-Richards on trial from Bath City with a view to taking the shot-stopper on, according to Gregor MacGregor of The Bristol Post.
Wiles-Richards was given his first test on Monday for the under-23’s as they beat Ipswich Town 1-0 away from home to record their second win in a row.
Elsewhere, MacGregor also reported that young left-back Vince Harper had returned to the club following a spell away on loan with Gloucester City.
Tomorrow sees Bristol City take the daunting trip to table-toppers West Brom in what is sure to be a closely-fought contest at the Hawthorns.
Can you name Bristol City’s last 15 managers?
But Lee Johnson and his side will be keen to bounce back to winning ways after being held to a 0-0 draw on their own patch by Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
It was a result which bumped them back out of the play-off places, although a win against Slaven Bilic’s men could see them rise as high as third, if other results also go their way.
In other Bristol City news, their hopes of landing exciting Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah in the January window took a boost when Football Insider reported that the Gunners were planning to recall him from his loan spell with Leeds.
I think both of these sound like sensible moves for Bristol City.
I know they are looking to win promotion but they cannot just forget about their up and coming players, nor can they neglect their recruitment.
However, what is important is that Johnson and his side remain focused on the task at hand against West Brom.
