Bristol City will be without Nicky Maynard for the remainder of the Championship season following his sending-off against Sheffield United

The striker was sent off in the 42nd minute of Saturday's 3-2 defeat to The Blades and, thus, will be suspended for the remainder of the campaign.

That sending off - for a two-footed tackle - was the first of Maynard's career and the former Crewe man is devastated after a disappointing season, which he missed the majority of through a knee injury, ended in such circumstances.

Maynard was eager to help The Robins finish on a high, although his absence is good news for Nottingham Forest as they will not face the striker on Monday as they attempt to cement their play-off spot.

Disappointment

"I feel disappointed in myself and upset for the fans. Hopefully the team can push on from Monday against Forest," he said.

"It didn't dawn on me until I was in the dressing room that my season was over. I kept thinking we had four games left and I'd be back for the last game but then I realised."

Meanwhile, Louis Carey, who has been sidelined since fracturing his skull against Scunthorpe at the end of February, may return to the fold.
