Last updated : 13 January 2016 By Kieran Makin

Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell has joined Championship side Bristol City on loan for the rest of the season.

The 27-year old joins the Robins after their number one 'keeper Frankie Fielding suffered a rib injury during their FA Cup third round draw at West Bromwich Albion.

O'Donnell made his debut for Steve Cotterill's team in last night's 2-1 home defeat to Preston North End.

The former Wallsall man made 12 appearances in all competitions for the Latics this campaign, but fell down the pecking order behind Jussi Jaaskelainen and Lee Nicholls.
