Derek McInnes says he is short of striking options

Bristol City manager Derek McInnes could have just two fit strikers to pick from ahead of his side's Capital One Cup first round tie against Gillingham.

Only Jon Stead and Brett Pitman are likely to be available for selection to the Robins boss after third-choice striker Ryan Taylor rolled an ankle in training and missed the final pre-season game against Bournemouth.

"Ryan Taylor picked up a knock in training when going over on his ankle and is a doubt for Tuesday," McInnes told the Post. "I only have two senior strikers fit for the game on Tuesday and that obviously leaves us a bit short."
