Double Blow..Injury Grows

City have been dealt a double blow with the news that wingers Anthony Pilkington and Robert Snodgrass will both be missing from action for "several weeks."

Pilkington; has had a scan which shows a grade two strain which usually means five or six weeks out.

 Snodgrass; came back from international duty with Scotland and felt his knee at the beginning of training on Friday. Hughton added: " he could be out for a few weeks but not as long as Pilkington.”

They joing the growing list of longer term injuries which includes , Mark Bunn, Alex Tettey and Elliott Bennett who all remain sidelined.

 Ricky van Wolfswinkel, will still be out until at least mid-December, with the clash against Swansea City on 15 December pencilled in for a return. This leaves Redmond and Josh Murphy as the  only wingers in the squad who have Premiership playing time.  

 Martin Olsson, can play wide left with Garrido filling in at full back is one other option that Hughton can use, but I wouldn't be surprised if Wes Hoolahan isn't asked to play on the wing, a position he cannot seem to adapt to
