Bristol City striker Ryan Taylor in fitness boost
Striker Ryan Taylor could be passed fit to re-join Bristol City’s battle for Championship survival after all.
When the former Rotherham target man fractured his collar bone during a 2-1 home win over Ipswich Town in January, it was feared he would miss the rest of the season.
But Taylor’s injury did not require surgery and he is now making quicker-than-expected progress.
City head coach Sean O’Driscoll says the striker could be back in full training a fortnight from now and expects him to be available well before the end of the campaign.

He told The Post: “It is good news as far as Ryan is concerned.
“Ryan’s fracture has healed and it will be another two weeks before he can do contact work.
“There was a gap there when he broke his collarbone, but it has now closed.
He did it by falling awkwardly and the worst case scenario is that he comes back too soon. He is a centre forward who has to jump and land heavily and we have to make sure he is okay to do those things before we bring him back.”
Taylor has been working hard in the gym with City’s physiotherapists and is regaining movement in his left shoulder.
He said: “It was really bad when I first did it, because I could not even lie down to sleep.
“But the bone has knitted together well and I’m now able to work on my fitness and do physio. I can already lift the arm above the shoulder and I’m looking forward to getting back into training in a couple of weeks’ time.”
