Bristol City defender Tomas Kalas has revealed that he is fit to play when Birmingham City visit Ashton Gate tonight as the Robins look to maintain their space in the play-offs.
The Czech Republic centre-back joined the club in the summer for a record fee but has struggled with injuries across the season so far, making just the 13 appearances in all competitions and last featuring in the FA Cup clash against Shrewsbury Town on 4th January.
A hamstring injury is the latest injury that the defender has had to deal with, and he revealed through his Facebook account that he was fit to feature against Birmingham.
The news comes as a bit of a shock to Robins fans as Lee Johnson said that the defender was still 10 days away from being available on Tuesday, meaning that Kalas has recovered quicker than what some would have expected.

The defender has new competition in the back-line, with Leicester City defender Filip Benkovic arriving on loan in the final hours of the January transfer deadline day which also paved the way for Taylor Moore to head out on loan to Blackpool.
Kalas’ reveal will come as a slight shock to many, as it was thought that he wouldn’t be back until next week.
The defender will now be looking to force his way back into the team over the next few weeks as City have a good chance of making the play-off places come the end of the Championship season in May.
