I have too much respect to celebrate says Bristol City striker Steven Davies
Steven Davies insists he will not celebrate if he scores against Derby County at Ashton Gate on Saturday.
Bristol City's eight-goal top-scorer has recovered from the injury that ruled him out of last weekend's 3-2 win at Sheffield Wednesday and is available for selection.
Although the former Derby forward is eager to add to his tally, he has no intention of upsetting his former team-mates if he finds the back of the net in this weekend's Championship encounter in BS3.
"I definitely won't celebrate if I score," said Davies. "I had a great five years at the club and the fans were always brilliant with me.

"The staff and everybody at the club are all top drawer as far as I'm concerned and I still have a lot of friends there.
"I'd love to score but, if I do, there will be no celebrating it."
Little has changed at Pride Park since Davies signed for the Robins in the summer and he has first-hand knowledge of most of the players City will come up against on Saturday.
He said: "Derby are a team that are always full of confidence. The manager will want them to get the ball down and play and we know what to expect from them.
"They will try and keep the ball, put us under pressure and make us work as hard as possible."
Derby boast a nucleus of talented young players that could be heading for stardom and Davies insists the likes of Will Hughes, Jeff Hendrick and Connor Sammon must be taken seriously.
He added: "Derby probably have the best group of young lads they have had for a while.
"Young Will Hughes is a great talent. He came in at the back end of last season and was brilliant.
"And there are quite a few others like him who are doing well at this level."
