[LNB]Tigers boss Phil Brown said: "It would be remiss of us not to involve an eminent surgeon such as Dr Steadman." [LNB]Bullard suffered his latest setback in a collision during the first half of City's 3-0 defeat at Aston Villa. [LNB]Brown added: "We have our own eminent surgeon who has read the scan. The most important thing is that Jimmy is happy with the diagnosis."
