Bristol City’s Michael McIndoe shares his views on new signing Nicky Maynard, following the young striker’s dream debut against Royal Antwerp.

‘We’ve had a decent pre-season trying out against different styles of football – we’ve played Belgian, English and Portuguese sides. It’s been a good standard. Our most recent opposition were Royal Antwerp on Friday night. We beat them 4-0.

‘Our new signing Nicky Maynard made his debut against Antwerp and got three in his first game. I’ve only trained with him for a few days, but he looks good. Getting that hat-trick was excellent. Hopefully he can do the same in competitive games. We’ve paid a lot of money for him but he could be well worth every penny. I`m sure he and our other new boy Gavin Williams will bed in well.

‘We have let seven or eight go over the summer so hopefully we’ll be adding a couple more before the window shuts. I’m sure the manager and the chairman will be eyeing up a few new signings. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.’
