Vokes keen on Robins stay

The Wales international has yet to make an appearance for the

Robins since returning after a four-month spell on the sidelines,

but is keen to show what he can do after tearing his hamstring on

his debut in August. Robins boss Keith Millen recently suggested

that he would be happy to keep the 21-year-old beyond January if he

proves his fitness and Vokes is eager to make up for lost time. “It

is something that I would definitely want to do because I am

looking to play football when I am back fit and what better place

to do that than Bristol City,” Vokes told skysports.com. “It is a

great place to play football and that is why I came here originally

at the start of the season, but unfortunately it didn’t work out as

well as I’d hoped. “The injury has cut my season almost in half, so

I am determined to get back fit and make up for lost time and if I

can do that here beyond January then that would be a great

opportunity.” However, Wolves’ recent injury crisis could leave the

door open for a January return for Vokes, but he insists that any

decision over his future will be left until the New Year. He added:

“I did my first three months of rehab at Wolverhampton, so I spoke

with Mick every day then, but since I have been back here I’ve just

been focused on getting back fit. “Once that happens I will get in

touch with him and see whether it is better for me to stay here

longer to get some more games or not. “It all depends on how things

go for me between now and January really.”
