Ryan Taylor fit but unlikely to start for Bristol City
Bristol City striker Ryan Taylor has declared himself fit and raring to go ahead of tomorrow's crunch npower Championship relegation showdown with Peterborough United.
But the Yorkshireman, now fully recovered from the hamstring strain that ruled him out of last Saturday's game at Ipswich, will almost certainly have to settle for a place on the bench.
The postponement of the Boxing Day clash with Watford because of water-logging means City's players are rested and manager Derek McInnes is expected to select the side picked to face the Hornets.
He left out Paul Anderson to accommodate a second striker and Sam Baldock is likely to partner Jon Stead in attack as the Robins bid to win a home game for the first time since August.

McInnes seems certain to retain the 3-5-2 system that served City so well at Ipswich with Greg Cunningham and Richard Foster operating as wing-backs and Liam Fontaine, Matthew Bates and Stephen McManus deployed in defence.
Veteran defender Louis Carey has recovered from injury and is expected to be named among the substitutes. But James Wilson, Mark Wilson, Stephen Pearson and Martyn Woolford are all struggling to make the squad now that the injuries are clearing up and McInnes has more options available to him.
