'I have got the opportunity to be fit now and hopefully be available for Sunday, Tuesday and the games coming up in the next couple of months which are vital for us.'

'It starts on Sunday. It will be a hugely important game and we will need the crowd behind us. We certainly know what we need to do.

'I need to be fit for the last months of the season. There is no doubt about that. We need every player fit, including Wes and Rafael but obviously I've got to concentrate on my own fitness and get myself ready.'
