Injury concerns for Bruce ahead of Bristol City visit

Sheffield Wednesday boss Steve Bruce has a number of injury concerns ahead of Bristol City’s visit to Hillsborough.

Goalkeeper Keiren Westwood sustained a knee injury in the warm-up ahead of Friday’s clash against Norwich, with Cameron Dawson called in to deputise at short notice, while Sam Hutchinson was taken off in the first half with a hamstring problem.

Forward Gary Hooper could return after he was left out of the squad for the 2-2 draw at Carrow Road.

Adam Reach’s Achilles injury is likely to keep him on the sidelines.

Korey Smith is a major doubt for City’s Easter Monday trip.

The influential midfielder was carried off on a stretcher in the first half of Friday’s 1-1 draw with Reading, with boss Lee Johnson confirming after the game that he had gone for x-rays on an area around his ankle.

Liam Walsh came on in place of Smith and could feature again should he miss out.

Niclas Eliasson and Matty Taylor are options for Johnson should he choose to make any changes.
