Bristol City defender Tomas Kalas misses out against former club Middlesbrough

Injured Bristol City defender Tomas Kalas misses out against his former team Middlesbrough at Ashton Gate.

Kalas, who played nearly 50 games for Boro in two different loan spells from 2015-16, faces between four and six weeks on the sidelines after suffering a grade-two hamstring tear.

Adam Nagy (ankle) is also ruled out after being forced off in the recent 2-0 home win against QPR, but the Hungary midfielder could return sooner than expected straight after the international break.

Korey Smith (foot) and Jay Dasilva (tibia) continue to build up their fitness, while goalkeeper Niki Maenpaa followed up his return to the City squad after injury with 90 minutes for the under-23s this week.

Boro boss Jonathan Woodgate has described full-back George Friend as “touch and go” for the Sky Bet Championship clash.

Club captain Friend has missed the last two games with a thigh problem.

Hayden Coulson (thigh) is unavailable but should return after the international break.

Fellow defender Dael Fry is in contention after stepping up his fitness this week following a hamstring problem.
