Bristol City target from January finds new club whilst Hull City new signing ruled out tomorrow

The latest Bristol City news on Friday.

Bristol City make the trip up north tomorrow to face Hull City.

Nigel Pearson takes his team to East Yorkshire to take on his former club at the MKM Stadium.

The Robins drew 1-1 against Blackpool on the opening day of last term.

Here is a look at all the latest news coming out of the club today....

Former target finds new club

Ex-Bristol City target Nesta Guinness-Walker has signed for Reading on a free transfer.

The left-back has been on trial with the Royals following his departure from AFC Wimbledon.

He was on the Robins’ radar back in January, as per London News Online.

Preparations have been good

Pearson has said preparations have been good ahead of the game against the Tigers.

His side were unbeaten over pre-season and will be eager to start the 2022/23 campaign with a win.

He has said, as per Robins TV:

“I’m looking forward to this weekend because the work that has gone into our preparations have been generally very good so this week has a different feel to it as the season is upon us now.

“The work we do now and have done for the last six weeks is all for this opening day so lets hope we get it right.”

Youngster tipped for breakthrough

Bristol City youngster Dylan Kadji could ‘potentially’ be next to break into the first-team.

The Championship outfit have enjoyed success with academy graduates over recent years.

Regarding Kadji’s getting into the senior side, Pearson has said: “Potentially. But don’t pigeon-hole him, don’t label him as being the next one to break in because he has a bit of an unfortunate pre-season where he has been training with us for a while now.

“He got injured and was out for a while which meant he missed out on the opportunity to come to Austria with us.

“I thought he did really well (against Bournemouth) when he went on, he was dynamic, he’s got good physical attributes but I’m not going to label players or try and put undue pressure on them.”

Hull new boy ruled out

Hull City new boy Dogukan Sinik won’t be making his debut against Bristol City.

The Turkey international has to wait for his first appearance in English football.

As per West Hull FM, he is out of action for three to four weeks with a calf strain.
