‘Hope it’s not too serious’ – Many Bristol City fans react to omission of one man ahead of Watford clash

Published

on

Bristol City midfielder Joe Williams has not been named in the matchday squad for the clash with Watford today, which has caused a stir among many fans of the South West club. 

The 24-year-old joined the Robins from Wigan in the summer but due to injury issues, he has featured just twice so far.

City have been plagued by injury problems this season and it seems that Williams, who was forced off in the FA Cup game against Sheffield United in midweek, may be set for another spell on the sidelines.

Dean Holden has named his squad for their trip to face Watford at Vicarage Road today and the midfielder has not been named in either the starting XI or among the subs, with City only able to name eight players on their bench.

Speaking to the Bristol Post after the game, Holden indicated that having come off with a tight hamstring against the Blades, Williams would be assessed ahead of today’s game.
