Kightly: Hopefully I could be running by Christmas

Our unlucky winger Michael Kightly, who went under the knife last Friday, is now looking forward to when he can be back and make a mark in the Premier League.

The operation was one of the most minor you can have and went really well. Hopefully I could be running by Christmas and then fully fit again at some point during January. If I can get fully fit, hopefully I’ll be able to help the team and play more Premier League football.”

“It feels like I haven’t had that chance to be at my best yet and that’s frustrating and disappointing. I went to see the foot surgeon and he said I could have dislocated my foot and also my knee as well. When you hear that, it puts everything into perspective and you realise it could have been something really bad. When I saw the footage of the incident I was pretty pleased it wasn’t a lot worse. The day after it happened I went for a scan and I was pretty down and disappointed to be honest. I thought I’d be out for a while.

If he can come out of from the rehabilitation fully fit and runnng he will be like a new signing when he comes back in January. But maybe the best thing would be to try to get a good back-up winger in the window anyway. It is not unusual that wingers gets injured a lot and therefore it could be a smart investment.

Entertainment at the Bolton game – everything was classy about that game 😆
