The former Ipswich striker will start against Bolton Wanderers.
Bruce said: â€œItâ€™s in my thoughts to put someone else up front alongside Nicklas Bendtner. It could be time for Connor.
â€œWeâ€™ve got to go to try to take the game to Bolton. They played 4-4-2 against Wigan last Saturday and weâ€™ll do the same and go and see if we can win the game.
â€œThere were reasons I didnâ€™t play Ji Dong Won or Connor against Arsenal. I thought with Ji coming back from Korea [where he was on international duty], with all the traveling heâ€™d done, it would have been unfair on him.
â€œConnor hadnâ€™t trained for 10 days before taking part on the Thursday and Friday."
