Lee Johnson provides verdict on Bristol City injury blow



Lee Johnson has stated that the injury Nathan Baker picked up in Bristol City’s defeat to Shrewsbury on Tuesday does not look good.

The defender had to go off in the first-half as he looked to have suffered yet another injury that will keep him out for at least the next few weeks.

It comes as a blow for Bristol City who have some crucial games coming up in the Championship as they hope to achieve a play-off place come the end of this current campaign.

Johnson has expressed that it’s not good and that it is something the club have to look into deeper as he’s been injured on several occasions during the manager’s tenure at Bristol City.

Speaking to Bristol Live, Johnson said: “It’s not good. He’s hurt his groin. Again it’s another injury from Bakes and it’s disappointing how many times he’s been injured over my tenure here.

“And it’s something we’ve got to look a bit deeper at.”

The Verdict

It’s another blow for the Robins and it means that they will be without one of their first-team players for a certain period of time. This Saturday they have another massive fixture, where three points will be crucial in achieving a top six finish.

Baker has now been injured a number of times, and the club have to start looking at ways of trying to deal with these injuries otherwise he’s only going to end up lacking match fitness and being a vulnerable weak link within the squad.

It topped off what was a sour night for Johnson anyway, and he’ll hope that his side can bounce back and produce a display worth three points on Saturday against Barnsley.
