Nicky Maynard is back in training and could return to action in two weeks' time, according to Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay.

Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay has said that striker Nicky Maynard could be back in action before the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has been out with a torn anterior cruciate knee ligament since October.

"The light is there at the end of the tunnel for him," BBC Sport quotes Mackay as saying. "He's back in training, which is great and he will hopefully get an under-21 game next week.

"If by Hull, which is two weeks away, Richard Collins in our physio department feels that he's ticked every box in our fitness department and I'm looking at him in training, that's absolutely a possibility."

Maynard joined Cardiff from West Ham United on a three-year contract last August.
