Bristol City defender Lewin Nyatanga believes in-form striker Nicky Maynard has the quality to play in the Premier League.

Former Crewe frontman Maynard has been in great form so far this season, scoring nine goals in all competitions for Gary Johnson's side.

"Everything he hits is going in at the moment. It gives the team great confidence when you have a striker scoring goals like he does," Wales defender Nyatanga said. "I have no doubt he can play in the Premier League, definitely. He has been brilliant and I just hope he's a Premier League player with Bristol City."
