Baker back and ready to go

Nathan Baker is itching to get back on the pitch after serving his three-game suspension.

The central defender, a key figure in the heart of City's defence this season, is available for selection against Fulham tonight.

Speaking ahead of the Sky Bet Championship fixture at Ashton Gate, Baker told BCTV he's ready to come back into the side and help build a promotion push.

He said: "I've been suspended for the last three games and it has felt like forever. If it had happened over the Christmas period it would only have been a week but it's been over a few weeks this time.

"I've still been training, keeping fit and I'm ready to go if selected against Fulham."

WHAT HE SAID

"Hopefully I can come back into the team and kick on with some more clean sheets."

The former Aston Villa player watched City lose 1-0 against Bolton, before seeing his teammates let slip 3-0 and 2-0 leads against Sunderland and Leeds United respectively.

"I have experience at the back now and I have developed a nice partnership with Flinty (Aden Flint) so hopefully I can come back into the team and kick on with some more clean sheets," he said.

City ran out 2-0 winners at Craven Cottage back in October and Baker is hopeful the Robins can halt Fulham's current run of form, with the Cottagers unbeaten in the league since December.

He added: "I wasn't involved in the last game but I remember watching and the lads did well. It's hard to beat them, they are in a good run of form so we have to keep that in consideration this time. But we have beaten them before so let's do it again at home."
