The former West Ham striker has been struggling with a groin injury but trained on Thursday and the Robins hope he will be available as they search for their first Sky Bet League One victory of the season.

Centre-back James Wilson has returned to Ashton Gate following the end of his loan spell at Cheltenham while former Rotherham striker Ryan Taylor also comes into contention after coming through two development games.
