The striker was ruled out of last weekend's goalless draw against Ipswich due to a thigh problem but, after netting twice for the reserves in midweek, he could regain his place in the starting line-up.

Jamal Campbell-Ryce and Ivan Sproule also featured in the second string clash against Swansea and are likely to be involved in some capacity.

But Marvin Elliott and Evander Sno will play no part at Ashton Gate.

Sno could face another fortnight on the sidelines as he continues to battle against a back problem while Elliott will sit out a couple of weeks with a knee injury.

Brian Wilson, Jamie McCombe and Jamie McAllister continue to struggle with their respective injury problems.
