BRISTOL CITY’S HOPES of promotion to the Premier League received a boost today, with the return of Callum O’Dowda to the starting line-up.

The 22-year-old winger had not played senior football since 25 November, after picking up a serious ankle injury.

O’Dowda’s afternoon did not go exactly as planned, however — his club were beaten 2-0 away to Millwall, with the youngster replaced on 57 minutes by Milan Đurić.

Lee Johnson’s side had started the day one point off the play-off spots in seventh, but are now eighth and four points off the pace.

O’Dowda has seven Ireland caps to his name, and completed 90 minutes in the first leg of the World Cup qualifying play-off against Denmark last November.
