Smith hoping to add to Bristol City goals tally

Bristol City have extended Matt Smith's loan from Fulham until March 1st.

The striker has found the net 9 times in 12 games.

City play Gillingham tonight in the second leg of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy area final. Steve Cotterill's men won 4-2 in the first leg at Priestfield, with Smith scoring all four goals.

But if they reach Wembley, the 25-year-old will be unable to play because the loan has a maximum length of 93 days under FIFA rules.
