It’s a tough time to be a football supporter, with recent off-the-field events calling an abrupt halt to fixtures across the sporting calendar.
There is yet to be a scheduled return date for football to return to our lives as well, although it’s understandable given the off-the-field situation at his moment in time.
One Championship team that might be slightly relieved by the break from competitive action is Bristol City, who have struggled for consistency at times in recent weeks.
The Robins had previously occupied a spot in the play-off places in the second tier standings, but a poor run of form has seen them slip out of the top-six.
Lee Johnson’s side now find themselves seventh in the Championship table after a winless run that has stretched to five matches, which will make for concerning reading for the club’s supporters, who will be eager to see their side get back to winning ways at the earliest of opportunities.
One player that has played his part in their play-off challenge this season is Tomas Kalas, with the former Chelsea defender making 17 appearances in all competitions this term.
Kalas has recently taken to Instagram to voice his thoughts amid the break from competitive action, and revealed that he is missing training and playing in matches for the Robins.

Playing football for many years, whoever knows football, will know, how hard it is and yet it’s been almost two months without a training session or a football game and I’d never have thought I’d miss it that much ⚽️ so dear COVID-19 pack your backs and get the hell out of here 🙏 #stayhome #staysafe #staypositive

I think plenty of Bristol City supporters will agree with him in missing football!
It’s a tough situation for everyone across the UK right now, and it does make you wonder what people would be up to without football.
Kalas will know that he has to be at his best for when competitive action does get back underway as well, as Bristol City are well in contention to challenge for a top-six finish this term.
The Robins haven’t been good enough in their last few games, and they need to find some much-needed consistency heading into the final nine games of this year’s campaign.
