ClaretandHugh revealed exclusively a few hours ago that the striker had an outside chance of making the bench for tomorrow’s fourth round FA Cup clash at Ashton Gate adding that next week’s match against Liverpool at Anfield was a real target.
And the co chairman has confirmed that is the case in responding to a follower who asked if there was “any truth” in the story.
Gold declared: “I am hopeful he will be available for selection against Liverpool.”
A source told us: “There remains a small chance he’ll make the bench tomorrow. He has recovered quicker than expected.”
