Maynard finished last season with ten goals in ten games

Bristol City striker Nicky Maynard could be named in the squad to face Leeds United on Saturday.

The 24-year-old, who was the Robins' top scorer last season with 21 goals, has not featured at all this season after undergoing knee surgery.

He told the club website: "If the gaffer wants me then I feel ready."

Robins boss Keith Millen added: "Nicky could come into the squad for the Leeds game. He says his knee feels fine and his fitness is improving all the time."
