Bristol City are finally back in action this weekend with the international break finally drawing to a close.

The Robins will take on promotion hopefuls Bournemouth this weekend as they look to build on their draw with West Brom before the break.

The Robins will be dying to get back to action as they look to significantly improve on their disappointing campaign, which has left them 19th in the table.

But as we count down the days to the Championship’s return, we have rounded up all the latest news from around the division.

Take a look below.

Bentley’s apology

Bristol City keeper Dan Bentley has revealed he apologised to Blackburn Rovers star Bradley Dack after ruining his comeback with a penalty save during Bristol City’s win in March.

He told BBC Radio Bristol: “I actually apologised to Dack after the game, obviously he looked heartbroken and I said ‘listen man, I’m really sorry..

“Obviously, it’s a little bit awkward from playing against him a fair few times, I know what he’s been through and how hard it is and I’ve seen that happen before (ACL injury).

“For it to happen twice in short succession was really tough so I did apologise but I had a job to do and that’s helping Bristol City win games.”

Molumby deal

West Brom are said to close a deal for loan star Jayson Molumby.

Molumby has impressed during his loan spell from Brighton this season, making 24 Championship appearances so far.

According to the Express and Star, the Baggies have triggered a permanent deal for the 22-year-old due to the amount of games he has played this season.

Bale chatter

Rumours are doing the rounds today, claiming that Cardiff City could sign Gareth Bale this summer.

It seems there are no talks at the moment, however, with Bale’s future seemingly dependent on Bale and Wales’ involvement in the World Cup.

“If they (Real Madrid) put the player [Bale] in the team and integrated him more, they would have a great player,” Barnett said in The Telegraph via WalesOnline. “But we will live with it and move on.”

“Gareth has no idea what will happen in the summer, it all depends on Wales,” he added. “We haven’t spoken with anyone yet, we will make a decision at some point in June. He is one of the best British players of all time and the best Welshman in history.”
