Bristol City have had to deal without Tomas Kalas and Adam Nagy over the past couple of weeks, with injuries taking their toll on the duo who both signed permanently for the Robins in the summer.
But, a new injury update has been issued regarding the pair as they both near a return to fitness.
Imposing central defender Tomas Kalas has been out with injury since August 24th when he tore the hamstring in his right leg in the Championship game with Hull City.
Kalas has recently been doing gym work and testing out his hamstring with no set-backs so far, as well as doing running on the pitch before Bristol City’s 2-2 draw with Wigan Athletic, and is hopeful of being available for City’s trip to Barnsley on Friday, but Cardiff away on November 10th remains a better possibility of returning.
Meanwhile, Hungarian central midfielder Adam Nagy has been out of action since the international break having travelled to play for his country but never got on the pitch, yet returned to City with the ankle injury being worse than when he left.
Would Kalas and Nagy both being back to full fitness be a boost to Bristol City?
The 24 year-old has had an injection that has kept him out of action for the past couple of games, and he could return in time for the Severnside derby against Cardiff City on November 10th.
Kalas and Nagy returning would both be a big plus for Lee Johnson and the squad.
City could do with Kalas’ added physicality at the back as their defence has struggled over previous weeks, and Nagy could add a bit of steel and composure in the centre of midfield.
