BLUES' goal hero Gavin Williams could miss the busy festive fixture schedule with a recurring groin injury.

Williams fired in the winner that gave Ipswich Town their first win in five games, but will today see a specialist in a bid to get the root of the problem that could rule him out of action again.

The former West Ham midfielder played through the pain for an hour in the victory over Leeds after getting through a late fitness test.

Williams said: “It was touch and go whether I would play, but as the game wore on the pain got worse. I have had the problem all week and I will see a specialist on Monday to sort it out. It has been disappointing for me because even though I have played about 15 games in total I have hardly trained.”

Blues boss Jim Magilton admitted he is concerned at Williams' latest setback.

Magilton said: “Gavin has a recurrence of his groin problem and I'm not happy. He is nine weeks into what should be a routine groin operation yet he has missed 103 days of training.”

The Blues might still play their first game at Chester City's Deva Stadium after all, with Bury facing an FA inquiry on Wednesday into allegations that they fielded loan player Stephen Turnbull, in their FA Cup second-round replay, without written permission from his club Hartlepool.
