Adomah out for Robins
Bristol City's injury woes have worsened ahead of the visit of Leicester in the npower Championship on Tuesday, with the news Albert Adomah will play no part.
Winger Adomah hobbled off late in the first half of the 3-0 defeat at Ipswich on Saturday with strained ligaments.
Adomah joins an injury list which also includes Marvin Elliott, who has been ruled out for the season after snapping his Achilles tendon, and broken ankle victim David Clarkson.
Defender Cole Skuse requires another two weeks of recuperation time before he can make his comeback from a broken toe while James Wilson could be out for the rest of the campaign with an ankle problem picked up in training last week.
The one piece of positive news for manager Derek McInnes is on-loan centre-back Stephen McManus should return to the matchday squad after missing the loss at Portman Road because of a thigh knock.
Leading scorer David Nugent is a doubt for Leicester.
Nugent injured a knee in netting his 14th goal of the season to give the Foxes the lead in the 2-0 home victory over Coventry at the weekend. The striker will be assessed but he does not want to miss Tuesday night's match.
"When I shot my foot was stuck on the floor and my studs stuck and I jerked my knee," said Nugent in the post-match press conference on Saturday. "I thought at first it was a serious one because I couldn't feel my knee but the numbness went away and I began to get some feeling back.
"Hopefully, I will okay for Bristol. It will tighten up but it is up to me to keep on top of it, keep icing it and get ready for Tuesday. I want to play in every game we have this month. There are a lot of games coming up and I want to be a part of it."
Defender Paul Konchesky will definitely miss out following his red card against Coventry. The full-back will begin a three-match suspension.
Forward Paul Gallacher could be involved, particularly if Nugent is absent, after missing the last three games with a hamstring injury.
Stead leaves Leicester foxed
Jon Stead's second goal of the season handed Bristol City their first win in eight npower Championship games as they beat Leicester 3-2 at Ashton Gate.
Stead pounced from close range after Brett Pitman's effort rebounded off a Leicester upright to settle a topsy-turvy game in the home side's favour and move them five points clear of the relegation zone.
The visitors took the lead four minutes before half-time. Lloyd Dyer seized on a moment of hesitancy in the hosts' defence to lash a fierce drive into the left-hand top corner.
Kalifa Cisse missed a golden chance to level seconds after the restart, dragging his sliding effort wide, but he was on target before the break - shooting beneath Kasper Schmeichel from Stead's through-ball.
After the break the home side edged in front, with Pitman collecting Stephen Pearson's pass to beat Schmeichel.
The Robins could not hold their lead, and Neil Danns bundled Tom Kennedy's cross beyond David James to level.
But the hosts rallied once more and Stead secured three valuable points in their battle to avoid the drop.
Pitman, enjoying a rare start up front, almost put the home side ahead after 12 minutes but his powerful drive was punched to safety by Schmeichel.
Despite having the better of the chances in the first quarter, City almost shot themselves in the foot after 28 minutes.
A harmless long ball seemed to be drifting through to James but Stephen McManus nodded a headed backpass over his own goalkeeper and narrowly wide.
The match appeared to be meandering to half-time goalless, but out of nowhere the visitors grabbed the advantage.
Liam Fontaine and Louis Carey stumbled into each other on the edge of the area, the ball broke kindly for Dyer and the winger hammered home from an acute angle.
The hosts should have been level moments later.
Stead headed down neatly for Pitman, whose miscued volley found Cisse unmarked and six yards from goal, but the midfielder slid his effort wide.
However, Cisse made instant amends for his error, equalising seconds before the interval.
Stead slipped a neat pass into the feet of the onrushing Malian and he produced a much more composed finish to slot beyond Schmeichel.
Ten minutes after half-time, the Robins had turned the game on its head.
Pearson latched onto a loose ball 30 yards from goal and fed Pitman, who beat the offside trap to lift the ball over Schmeichel.
James did well to deny Beckford low at his near post as Leicester went in search of a quick reply and the former England stopper was on top form again after 62 minutes to prevent David Nugent from levelling.
The hosts sat deep in their own half for much of the final 20 minutes, inviting and absorbing pressure throughout.
Leicester equalised 14 minutes from time when Kennedy's cross from the left found Danns and the midfielder squeezed the ball beneath James.
No sooner had the Foxes found parity, however, than they were back behind once more.
Pitman found space in the area and, when his deflected effort bounced back off an upright, Stead was there to tap home.
