City are hopeful that Nahki Wells' hamstring injury is not serious.

The top scorer was taken off in the first half of yesterday's 1-1 draw with Swindon.

He is a big doubt for the New Year's Day trip to Notts County but boss Phil Parkinson is optimistic about the extent of the problem.

Parkinson said: "It's still a bit early to assess the injury but it doesn't appear too bad. We'll know more when it's settled down a bit tomorrow."

Ricky Ravenhill (knee) should be okay for Wednesday but Nathan Doyle is suffering with a tight groin.
