Fleetwood captain Nathan Pond a doubt for Bristol City clash

Fleetwood captain Nathan Pond is a doubt for the FA Cup third-round replay at home to Bristol City.

The defender collided with team-mate Conor McLaughlin and was forced off during Saturday's Sky Bet League One win over Bristol Rovers.

Ashley Eastham, making his first appearance since November, was his replacement and could deputise at Highbury.

Defender Joe Maguire, signed from Liverpool on Friday afternoon, could feature in the squad.

Iceland defender Hordur Magnusson is set to return after missing Bristol City's last three games with hamstring trouble.

Gary O'Neil should also be back after illness and injury, while Callum O'Dowda is expected to shake off a knock suffered in Saturday's 3-2 Championship defeat to Cardiff.

But Korey Smith (hamstring) and Adam Matthews (calf) will be missing again as City chase a first win in nine games.

Luke Freeman looks like being absent again with doubts over his Ashton Gate future, as Robins boss Lee Johnson considers promoting Lee Tomlin and Aaron Wilbraham from the bench.
