Blues midfielder previews Sheffield UnitedMyles Weston is back fit and is raring to go ahead of the game against Sheffield United tomorrow night.
The midfielder is now back fit and in contention for the game against the Blades at Roots Hall.
Weston has spent the last four months out with an injury called plantar fasciitis; an injury which causes pain in the heel and foot.
It’s been a long road to recovery for Weston, but now well on his way back to his best the midfielder states he will be ready when Phil Brown calls upon him.
“I’m just excited to get out there and play.” He said.
“When I get my chance I just want to grab it with both hands.
“It’s a tricky injury, you can’t rush it and there’s no time limit on it either so I had to wait until it was right, and I’m glad its recovered before the end of the season.
“It’s been a hard time as it has been the longest injury of my career, but the staff have been great, the medical staff have been great and the gaffer has been great.
“They haven’t rushed me back because they understand what the injury was like, and I appreciate that because if they had tried to rush me back I probably wouldn’t be fit now.”
Now back in full training for almost a month, Weston has been building his way back to full fitness and into the Manager’s plans going into the final eight games of the season.
With three Under-21 games now under his belt, Weston admits he will have to be patient to get his chance.
“I didn’t think I could just be fit and go straight back into the team, it doesn’t work like that.” He added
“You have to work your way into the team and earn your spot, so I’ve been patient, been on the bench for two games.
“Obviously the gaffer hasn’t brought me on, but like I say I understand that I don’t just go straight back into the team, I’ve got to work to get back to that level I was at, and I feel I’m at that stage now so hopefully I’ll get my chance and I’ll take it.”
Blues welcome Nigel Adkins’ side to Roots Hall tomorrow night looking to get their play-off bid back on track.
With much at stake under the lights and on the Sky cameras, Weston is just purely focused on registering the all-important three points.
“I don’t particularly care if the cameras are there or not there, I just want to play.
“I’m excited, I’m raring to go and it is an important game for us as we need to get as many points as possible because there’s still a chance for us to get into the play-offs.
“Every game from now on is important.
“We’ve done great this season, and I still feel we can get in the play-offs so I don’t think we’re out of that.
“Look what happened last season, we won eight on the bounce so if we do that again we will give ourselves a good chance.
“I’m not saying we are going to do that, but we need to get as many points to be in and around it.”
