Bristol City striker ​Tammy Abraham will find out within the next 48 hours how serious his thigh injury is after the forward hobbled off in Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat to Leeds United. 


The news comes as a massive blow to Robins' boss Lee Johnson who will be fearing the worse as his side try to starve off the threat of relegation into League 1. 

Speaking to City's official ​website after their loss: "He has done something to his thigh although we don't know to what extent yet," Johnson said. 


"Tammy is gutted because he thinks it's something serious. We hope that isn't the case. "We need to get it scanned over the next day or so to see how bad it is." 


He added: "He's played a lot of games for a young kid, but you cannot leave him out when he is nigh-on the top scorer in the league."

Johnson's words would certainly suggest that the player himself is adamant it's a bad one but time will tell once the results are in. 


Abraham has been a star this term for City and is currently the Championship's second-highest scorer this term with 19 goals and the teenager is highly regarded to have a bright future ahead of him.

The England U21 international is at Ashton Gate on a season-long loan from Chelsea and many within Antonio Conte's camp are expecting the Italian to give him a chance in the first team next season. 


City, meanwhile, are without a fixture this Saturday but they take on Fulham in the league the following Wednesday.
