Aaron Cresswell is targeting a strong end of season after a campaign which he won’t count among his best.
Speaking to the official website he said: “As of late, it has not been too good for me personally injury-wise this season, but I just needed to keep my head down, work hard and I hoped things would come good.
“Pre-season is the foundation for your season, so to be out for three or four months with a knee injury was never easy, and it was the first time in my career that I’d had a serious injury and been out for quite some time.
“All I could do, as I say, was get my head down and give 100 per cent and now I feel fine. I have felt fine physically for a long time, but missing pre-season and a few months was not easy. That’s football, so you’ve got to learn to deal with it and get on with it.”
He is however looking for a really strong finish over the dozen games remaining saying: “We’re not about to pack our suitcases, that’s for sure. With the lads we’ve got here, we’re not going to rest on our laurels and accept tenth or twelfth position.
“While there are points to play for, we’ll give it everything we’ve got week-in, week-out and try to get as many points on the board as we can between now and 21 May.”
