Bristol City Set For Burnley Test

Bristol City Set For Burnley Test

Bristol City face Burnley on Saturday and boss Keith Millen will be hoping his side can pick up all three points to set them on their way to another run of good results to finish the season on a high.

But Burnley are just three points away from a play off place and they will be hoping to keep up the pressure on Nottingham Forest and Leeds, and with five wins and eight draws on their travels so far this season, the Clarets must be taken seriously.

City go into this game with doubts over defender Liam Fontaine, he is still suffering from an on-going ankle injury.

The decision as to whether he plays or not will be left to the player himself although it has been reported that if he does miss the game he will almost certainly go under the surgeon`s knife and miss the remainder of the season.

Damion Stewart on standby to deputise.

Good news for the Robins is that Cole Skuse may not miss the game with a toe injury and Lewis Carey is back in light training after he suffered a skull fracture.

Also back in training are striker Jon Stead who has been out with an ankle problem, along with defender Jamie McAllister who is recovering nicely from a fractured rib.

As far as Burnley go, Boss Eddie Howe has to give midfielder Dean Marney the once over before the kick off. The player has been enjoying a new lease of live at Turf Moor since How took charge, but on Tuesday he suffered a knee injury in the game against Coventry City and has been undergoing treatment ever since.

He is rated doubtful, but Wade Elliott and Marvin Bartley are both ready to take his place should they be called upon.

Strikers Charlie Austin, Steven Thompson and Martin Paterson remain sidelined as does midfielder Chris McCann.
