Speaking at the Bristol City press conference on Thursday (14 September) he said: “It’s disappointing for him but it’s something that we knew was going to happen, that’s life, that’s what it is.

“But we’re happy to have him here and he’s happy to be here, so it gives us weeks, months, years to work with him. So missing this game is fine.”
