Costa Rica star faces fitness check
Published : 16 Oct 2009 09:00:00
Saborio played for Costa Rica on Wednesday night and only arrived back in Bristol on Friday, so manager Gary Johnson will assess his condition before making a decision. If Saborio does not start, David Clarkson, Danny Haynes and Ivan Sproule will all be hopeful of partnering Nicky Maynard in attack, with Clarkson impressing against Bournemouth's reserves on Tuesday. Defender Lewin Nyatanga will also be checked over after playing for Wales in Liechtenstein on Wednesday. Liam Fontaine is definitely out as he battles with an ankle injury that is likely to sideline him until the end of the month, while Christian Ribeiro suffered a recurrence of a groin injury while on duty with the Wales Under-21 squad. Defender Brian Wilson is also set for a lengthy spell out after fracturing his shin bone and midfielder Frankie Artus has joined Cheltenham on loan for a third time.
