Bristol City defender Richard Foster will be out until at least Easter
Bristol City defender Richard Foster will be out of action for longer than originally thought.
Recovering from an Achilles tendon problem, the Scot will definitely miss upcoming games against Middlesbrough and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Foster attempted to play through the injury during February, but finally had to admit defeat ahead of last Saturday’s trip to Blackpool.

Centre-back Louis Carey has now fully recovered from the knee injury that laid him low last month and is available for selection for Saturday’s home game against Middlesbrough.
That leaves striker Ryan Taylor as the only other absentee. Recovering from a fractured collar-bone, the Yorkshireman is expected to be back in training within the next week to 10 days.
