Bristol City midfielder Cole Skuse says they are keen to return to action against Peterborough after their Boxing Day game with Watford was postponed.

The Ashton Gate pitch was left waterlogged following torrential rain in the south-west and the game was eventually called off just minutes after the 3pm kick-off was initially delayed.

But with a resurgent Peterborough side next up following their 3-0 win at Wolves on Boxing Day, Skuse is up for the match.

"We are raring to go after yesterday's postponement," he told Bristol City Player.

"We were all prepared and there was a big crowd expected but I think to call the game off was the right decision.

"With Peterborough also in the relegation zone the game has added significance. We have got to start picking up points at home.

"Obviously we had one eye on the teams around us who were playing yesterday but we can't let other results affect our preparation for the game.

"We played well against Ipswich (in a 1-1 draw) and I think we deserved to win the game. We could have been three or four up but we have got to take our chances."

Skuse returned to manager Drerk McInnes' starting line-up in last Saturday's draw at Portman Road after suffering a facial injury in the 2-0 defeat against Birmingham and he admitted he was delighted to be involved again.

"I was buzzing to be back involved and in the week leading up to the Ipswich game - I was (literally) like a kid before Christmas," he added.

"The fitness and medical staff did their upmost to make sure I was ready to play again and it was an honour to be made captain."
