Maynard determined to find place in Cardiff boss Mackay's plans

Nicky Maynard is determined to find a place in Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay's first-choice team.

Maynard thinks he can push current starter Fraizer Campbell all the way.

"I always believe I can score goals and my aim is make a strong personal claim for a League start," he told the Western Mail.

"I didn't kick a ball in Premier League football for West Ham and then when I signed for Cardiff a bad injury put me out for eight months.

"Now, honestly, I am so happy to be fit and playing again.

"Fraizer Campbell has done exceptionally well, particularly with those goals against Manchester City, and has taken the chance to prove he deserved to start.

"We are competing for a place in the starting line-up. He wants to play in every Premier League match and I will do all I can to push him all the way."
