Bristol City manager Lee Johnson has admitted that Italian full-back Eros Pisano will only miss around week of action with a slight knee injury according to the Bristol Post.

The 30-year-old Busto Arsizio born defender missed The Robins’ 1-0 victory over Reading at The Madejski Stadium on Saturday after picking up a training ground injury.

It has now been reported that the player sustained a slight strain of his knee after slipping in wet conditions and The Robins manager Johnson has confirmed that Pisano could return to action when Bristol City face Derby County at Ashton Gate next weekend.

Pisano joined Bristol City in the summer on a free transfer from promoted Italian club Hellas Verona. The defender signed a two-year deal at Ashton Gate and Pisano has gone on to feature in every Sky Bet Championship fixture for his new club prior to the narrow win at Reading.

The player has never played outside of his homeland during his 13-year professional career but Pisano has taken little time in settling in at Bristol City and the full-back has impressed so far with The Robins.

Bristol City are occupying ninth position in the league table after collecting nine points from their first six matches. The club’s next two fixtures sees them face two sides above them in the table in the form of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Derby County.
