Boss hopes for Bruce return
WITH goals proving scarce, City boss Steve Castle would like the chance to recall midfielder Paul Bruce who has taken on an Academy coaching role at Queens Park Rangers. Free kick specialist Bruce scored eight goals in all competitions last season
WITH goals proving scarce, City boss Steve Castle would like the chance to recall midfielder Paul Bruce who has taken on an Academy coaching role at Queens Park Rangers.
Free kick specialist Bruce scored eight goals in all competitions last season and really hit top form as City neutralised relegation fears with a strong run in the final months of the campaign.
The City boss said: "It would be nice to say that Paul Bruce will be coming back within the next couple of weeks but we have to see how things progress. I think he is going to play a couple of reserve matches for us but he has got other commitments."
Defenders Ryan Frater and Chris Seeby remain a way off returning to match action but Castle could have winger Rod Hicks back in contention soon.
