KIERAN AGARD ad­mits it’s a re­lief to be back play­ing for Bris­tol City af­ter a long-term knee in­jury had kept him out of ac­tion for six months.

The Robins striker suf­fered the in­jury in July, and fi­nally made his first start against Wolves at the start of the month.

“It’s been fan­tas­tic; it’s given me an ex­tra spring in my step on the train­ing ground and on the pitch,” ex­plained the 26-year-old. “It was a dis­ap­point­ing and mentally test­ing time.

“It was quite a bad in­jury and it takes time to get over some­thing like that, but I worked hard on the train­ing ground and played in re­serve games to get back up to match speed.”
