Football - Elliott blow for Robins

Bristol City will be without midfielder Marvin Elliott when they host fellow strugglers Tranmere.

PA Sport Report

The Jamaican discovered this week that he not only suffered a broken hand after a clash of heads with Oldham's James Wesolowski last Saturday but he also suffered a fractured foot which looks to have ended his campaign.

Manager Steve Cotterill does, however, have fellow midfielder Stephen Pearson and Liam Kelly close to first-team returns after long spells on the sidelines while Karleigh Osborne made a welcome return in Tuesday's shock 3-1 win at Leyton Orient.

The two sides meet with only goal difference separating them and City know three points could potentially lift them four points clear of the relegation zone.
