City Old Boys Suffer
Tommy Doherty lasted only 9 minutes of his loan debut for Yeovil Town, at Chesterfield, before limping off with a fibula injury, believed to be a recurrence of a problem sustained earlier in the season.
Meanwhile Leroy Lita's season is over as he fractured a fibula in Reading's match at Turf Moor against Burnley.
The full extent of Leroy's injury will not be known until x rays are taken on Monday or Tuesday.
Both Yeovil and Reading went on to record fine 3-0 away victories.
One ex-City man who did have cause to celebrate was Stephen Gillespie, who scored a last minute goal to give Cheltenham Town a 2-1 home win over league leaders Wycombe Wanderers.
