Injury setback for Bristol City loan striker Sam Vokes

Bristol City's on-loan striker Sam Vokes has suffered a further injury blow just 18 minutes into his comeback match for the reserves on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old limped off with a recurrence of the hamstring problem that has kept him out since City's opening league game of the season.

"It just didn't feel right. I'm absolutely gutted," Vokes, on loan from Wolves, told the City website.

"Hopefully it's nothing too serious and I have to build it back up."

Vokes was signed on a five-month-deal from Wolves in August but went off in Bristol City's 3-0 home defeat to Millwall.

He's on loan until 5 January and it's unlikely he'll be fit enough for the first team before then

Since then, the Wales international has been back and forth between the two clubs in an effort to regain his fitness.

City boss Keith Millen was on the sidelines as the reserves beat Cheltenham Town 5-2.

"It's been a nightmare loan for Sam and us because we know how good a player he can be," he said.

"There's clearly something wrong there and he needs to get fully fit again.

"He's on loan until 5 January and it's unlikely he'll be fit enough for the first team before then."
