Chester boost for Tigers

Last Updated: Thu, 13 Mar 2014 07:09

Hull defender James Chester is confident his injury problems are behind him and is hoping to end the season on a high.

Chester has seen his season blighted by a hamstring injury that he first picked up back in September, and only now does he feel as though he is back to full fitness.

The defender return to action following an 11-week lay-off, but looking back he now believes he was never really 100 per cent fit. Chester has not started in the Premier League since January but is now back fit and is in contention to face Manchester City at the KC Stadium this weekend.

"It feels a lot better this time around," he told the Hull Mail. "Knowing how it feels now, it probably wasn't 100 per cent when I came back last time. I was having to take a lot of anti-inflammatories the first time around but this time I've not needed to take any.

"It's been a frustrating season in a way. Having worked so hard to get to the Premier League and to where I've wanted to be, the injury's meant I've been playing games here and there. Getting the consistency going has been difficult.

"Touch wood that's the end of it because it does feel good again."
