Bristol City wait on Tammy Abraham

Bristol City are waiting to hear whether top scorer Tammy Abraham will be fit for the Sky Bet Championship relegation showdown with Burton.

Loan signing Abraham has had a second scan on a thigh injury which has ruled him out of the last three games, and City are set to discuss the 21-goal striker's fitness with his parent club Chelsea.

Milan Djuric could be available following a groin problem, the Bosnian striker having had an injection this week in the hope of making the Ashton Gate clash.

Mark Little (hamstring) is expected to be missing again as under-fire Robins boss Lee Johnson attempts to improve on a miserable run of one win in 15 games.

Burton make the trip hampered by a raft of injury problems.

On-loan Burnley winger Michael Kightly could be the latest addition to a lengthy list of absentees after complaining of a tight hamstring this week.

Top scorer Jackson Irvine missed the home draw with Blackburn with a groin problem while Lucas Akins (calf), Damien McCrory (hamstring) and John Brayford (knee) have now missed several matches and remain major doubts.

One piece of positive injury news for Burton boss Nigel Clough was the return to action of defender Kyle McFadzean against Blackburn last weekend after a toe problem.
