Steven Davies is desperate to lock horns with former club Derby County on Saturday (3pm) after recovering from a knee injury.
The 24-year-old spent four seasons at Pride Park before turning down a new deal and joining Derek McInnes’ side in the summer.
The striker will be looking to be involved against his previous employers after missing the victory against Sheffield Wednesday in City’s last outing.
“I woke up on the morning of the game and my knee was locked, but I’m feeling fine now,” Davies told Bristol City Player
“I loved every minute of my time at Derby. It was a great five years of my career and the fans were brilliant with me.
“Obviously I want us to win on Saturday but after the game I will wish them all the best for the rest of the season.”
McInnes’ men will be looking to put in a good performance on home soil following their 4-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Ashton Gate a fortnight ago.
Davies continued: “We need to put things right on Saturday and show the home fans that we are a good side after our last home performance.
“The Christmas period is always exciting as a footballer. There are a lot of games and if we put some good results together we have a chance to shoot up the league.”
