SCOTT Wagstaff will face up to six weeks on the side­lines but Bris­tol City boss Steve Cot­ter­ill ad­mits he’s lucky it’s not longer. Wagstaff picked up a shoul­der in­jury dur­ing Tues­day night’s loss to Coven­try.

But while Cot­ter­ill has con­firmed that Wagstaff will not re­quire surgery, he does con­cede his ab­sence is a big loss to the team.

“Scott took an aw­ful fall, popped his shoul­der joint and is prob­a­bly go­ing to be out for six weeks,” said Cot­ter­ill.

“The big news is that he won’t need an op­er­a­tion be­cause, if he had, that would have been it for the rest of the sea­son.”
