Matthews faces month out
Bristol City manager Danny Wilson has revealed that striker Lee Matthews could be sidelined for up to a month after sustaining a back injury in the 3-1 defeat by QPR last weekend.

Both Matthews and fellow striker Lee Peacock were substituted after suffering injuries in the game.

Wilson said: "Lee Matthews is not looking good. He is still in a lot of pain and is finding it difficult to move around.

"I wouldn't say it will be a lengthy lay-off, but I would anticipate it to be around three to four weeks on the sidelines for him.

"Lee Peacock's substitution was made as a precautionary measure.

"We knew that he had picked up a slight hamstring strain during the game, so decided to bring him off.

"It needed to be done because we can't afford to lose someone like Lee for a lengthy spell."
